Gitam University, Hyderabad campus, organised a two-day national work shop on ‘Information security, Ethical hacking and Photography' on its campus located at Rudram in Medak district. The programme, which was held in collaboration with SOURCENXT, concluded on Sunday.

Gitam varsity Vice-Chancellor Harinarayan said that India is the only nation, which is having a large population of youth. “Proper attention towards the academics is required so as to get an exposure in terms of knowledge and attending workshops gives an extra benefit of exposure to the world of knowledge,” he said.

“In this technical world we come across situations where the personal data can be encrypted and can be hacked. In order to create awareness among students, the university has taken a step forward to conduct the workshop on the above specified topics,” said Dr. B. Basvaraja, vice-principal.

“In this modern world there is always a gap between the theoretical knowledge and practical knowledge so workshops like this enhance the skill among the students and bridge the gap between them. Students turning up for these will help themselves in the near future when they enter into the corporate world,” he said.

The latter part of the session was taken over by trainer D. Abhijeth (a student of Gitam, Visakhaptanam), a professional ethical hacker right from the age of 13 years, made the workshop lively. He cleared many doubts expressed by the students during the workshop. Recent trends in the modern technology and database encrypting with the online support were also explained to the students in the workshop. They were also informed about the regulations followed in ethical hacking.
