Why CSSRL's Virtual classroom methodology is different from typical "online courses"

Professional Training in Cyber Security is still a niche area in education industry and not many organisations are able to provide it to the level which is useful for the trainees in starting or advancing their career in this field. For those who want to get trained in this domain, the biggest challenge is to find a program "nearby" which is convenient to attend. Unfortunately, unlike most of the usual training programs which are available with a few kilometers from home or workplace or otherwise generally in same city where they live, we do not find good training programs in cyber security with such abundance. As shifting to other city or attending a training program far from convenient distance, or at a schedule which does not clash with existing profession, is not feasible for most of us, Virtual mode is the best option (or the only option, for many of us).

Apart from location and schedule, other benefits of online training include, self-paced training(repeat a module as many times as needed, pause when you need, go fast when you can), cost benefit( saving in commuting as well as lesser fees), own schedule (for those who want to learn at 2 am) and many more. But generally these benefits are not able to overcome the drawbacks like "What happens if I am not able to understand the contents on my own?" or “I really need some defined schedule to discipline myself" or "I feel comfortable in learning only in classroom environment". And most of the online course provider care the least, once you have "bought" their "product". The one reason for not considering virtual mode, which is heard most of the time, is “I had a bad experience in some online course in the past”. 

In case of cyber security, the training cannot be effective unless it contains a lot of practical hands-on experience. And that is exactly what CSSRL professional training programs are designed for. For virtual mode students, interaction with the instructors is what sets us apart from others. Not able to setup the latest version of required software, you can post a message for help. The experiment not giving the desired result and not able to figure out why; share the screenshots with the instructor. Not sure about which approach will work and need expert advice, schedule a phone call with the evangelist. Not able to understand a recorded lecture or a particular content on any reference material, ask for help. Depending on the type of query, an online screen sharing session or a video call can be scheduled. And all of this, with no restriction on the total number of interactions, during any program. 

Still don't believe its worth trying, then go for regular mode and you still get the same professional training in regular mode too.

Why CSSRL came with the Republic Day offer?


We all know it's right time to start a career in Cyber Security. Those who already have an established career, augmenting Cyber Security skills or even switching to this domain is not a bad idea. The IT industry as well as other industries which depend on it are desperate to find and hire skilled Cyber Security Experts. The demand is all time high so far, (and ever increasing) but the supply of skilled manpower is not even close. The gap seems impossible to bridge. After all how many people can any government or organisation train and at such a quick turnaround time and without compromising on quality? 

And India is not just catching up with the rest of the world but becoming a leader in Cyber Security industry as both the demand as well as supply is growing at one of the fastest rate among all countries on the globe. 

CSSRL had taken the challenge to minimize this gap between his demand and supply by providing high quality professional training at affordable cost and manageable schedule for college going as well as working professionals. 

The amount of enthusiasm shown by people across all kind of backgrounds, be it a IT manager, or a Engg graduate or even non-IT background, has been encouraging for us at CSSRL. CSSRL has always been committed to this cause and hence been flexible enough to the challenging situations of those who are looking to get themselves trained. We could successfully help them overcome the challenges such as time management by providing flexible class timings or weekend options, or by providing virtual classroom to those who had location challenge. 

But in the recent past we also observed that many of them could not utilize the opportunity due to financial situations. Getting student loan from banks is still not that easy, Nor any other financial students are coming forward unless they charge high interest rate. 

Hence, on the occasion of Republic Day 2017, CSSRL has offered a limited period, 0% interest rate EMI option to all those who were holding themselves back only due to financial situation. 

We hope this will help us prepare more people who know It's right time to start a career in Cyber Security. One can contact CSSRL via email or phone or visit our location for details of the offer.

CSSRL Career Development Services


Cyber Security is not an Academic Subject of Study, its a Thriving Buoyant Industry in Action. Keeping the same idea in focus, CSSRL has always endeavored to prepare young students, professionals and IT Learners for this vary critical industry with well researched and tested training practices.

CSSRL not only acknowledges but actively participates in handling these challenge for its Trainees.

Once a Trainee is done with Formal Training, it is required to guide, mentor and assist the Trainee in his/her pursuit and hunt for bright Cyber Security Career.

Is Cyber Security career possible for me?

Perhaps in recent past you had shown interest in getting trained in Cyber Security. But could not make up your mind as there were some questions or concerns which prevented you from taking a decision.

We know that the Cyber Security Industry is growing. There is a lot of scope in it in future. It is the right time to start a career in cyber security.But is it for me? Can I make it? Where do I start? Do I need to give up my current career and start fresh? These are some of the questions which many of us face when we consider opting for Cyber Security as a career.

We have compiled for you some frequently asked questions below which people ask and the answers for the same.

What is the eligibility for studying cyber security? What if I am not from IT background?

At CSSRL we have a range of courses in cyber security for people with different educational backgrounds and interests. Our counselor will be able to guide you to choose the course that is best fit for you, if you decide to enter in this domain.

I am curious about Cyber Security but not sure if I can have a career in this domain.

Due to growing demand of cyber security professionals and a lot of career opportunities a lot of people have recently started getting attracted to this domain. There could be various reasons but primarily they fall in any of these three categories when someone want to study Cyber Security.

a) Those who want to start in this field but have no significant background in this so far

b) Those who do not see it as a career option but want to learn cyber security due to curiosity or to increase their awareness.

c) Those who have studied cyber security but want to upgrade their skills and learn advance topics.  

At CSSRL, we have various courses addressing all of these different needs.  

How do I decide which course is right for me?

The details of all our courses, with their duration, eligibility, fee structure and course contents are listed on our website. Our counselor will be happy to help you (on phone call or in person) in case you need any guidance in choosing the right course. 

Do I need to have good knowledge of computer programming to learn cyber security

The answer depends on which course you are choosing. Except in some specialized courses, having prior knowledge of computer programming is not mandatory. 

I have already have a lot of years of experience in my career but I am new to cyber security. Do I have to start from beginning?

CSSRL offers various courses for all levels. Contact our counselor to discuss your case.  

What kind of career options are available in the field of cyber security?

There is a huge growth in career opportunities in the cyber security domain since past two years and it is expected to grow even faster. In fact most of the reports indicate that the cyber security industry is going through a shortage of skilled resources. This, of course, is a good opportunity for those who learn the skills.  

I want to learn cyber security but not sure if I will be able to manage my time to attend the classes without disturbing my current profession.

At CSSRL we understand the constraints or issues which the student faces in such situation. Our academic schedule is planned and customized for our students to provide such flexibility included weekend and or evening/early morning classes. Check with admission cell, before deciding to join any course on what flexibility can be provided in your case to match your availability.

I heard that employment in cyber security domain  requires a lot of hands on experience and not just some certification by learning theoretical concepts. Is it true?

That is true. Without sufficient hands-on/practical knowledge, it will be unfair to expect a good career specially in domains like cyber security. Hence all our courses have enough hands-on sessions for our students so that they have the required skills and confidence by the time they are ready for employment in this domain.

If I choose distance learning/virtual classroom mode, what will happen to my practical classes?

Unlike most of the online courses available on internet, CSSRL provides full support to our virtual learning students (What is CSSRL's virtual learning mode?)  by providing not only recorded lectures but also interaction with trainer for answering queries as well as providing all required tools and assistance in installing and using them. CSSRL trainers are assigned to all our virtual learning mode students who review their progress and are available to answer their queries and assist them in their practicals/hands-on.

My job schedule is unpredictable and may require occasional travelling. What if I join some course but could not complete it due to my travel requirements?

Contact CSSRL Admission cell in such case and we will be able to provide you such flexibility if required.

What if I realize after joining any course that it is too complex for me?

Our counselor will help you avoid such situation by guiding you to join the course which is fit for you. However, if such situation still arise, our trainers are also flexible enough and go extra mile to ensure that you achieve the skills that you intended to, when you joined the course.

Cyber Security Franchise Opportunity (Education and Training) - I

Dear Readers,

Today CSSRL sets the beginning of a new series of Articles over Franchise Opportunities in Cyber Security Industry. In these articles we have attempted to present various topics like
  1. Franchising Business Models
  2. Startup Opportunities
  3. Why Start your Own Business
  4. Best Business Setup Ideas 
  5. Subjective Study of Business Market
  6. Competitive Analysis
  7. Setting Foothold
  8. Global Expansion etc etc.
CSSRL, a Reputed IT Security Company, caters to various important Business Verticals like Professional Education and Training, Business Protection Solutions and Assisted Entrepreneurship.

CSSRL Assisted Entrepreneurship Model or Global Partnership Initiative is to carry its services to every possible corner of World. Cyber Security Professional Education and Training Industry is an UNTAPPED ECONOMIC ZONE. 

Though there are more than 30000 Small, Medium and Large Scale Players, globally, in IT Security Training Industry like EC-Council, Cisco, SANS, ISACA etc. Still World IT Infrastructure Backbone carries a big vacuum for Trained (NOT JUST CERTIFIED) Cyber Security Professionals. 

Here it is important to emphasize "what is the meaning of NOT JUST CERTIFIED ?". Let us clarify.

Unlike most other industries, Cyber Security Recruiters (Most) estimates the credibility of one's skills and understanding about IT System Security based upon various International Certifications / Degree Programs. Which is perfectly fair to judge the Credibility of a Professional.

For Instance, we must understand that a 40 Hours CEH Training and then conclusive CEH Certification does not imply that a Professional is actually a Certified Ethical Hacker with Best of Hand's On Skills and Practices. Not to offend the Certified Professionals but to just point out the GAP.

Now This creates an OPEN OPPORTUNITY for Startups to offer more conducive Setup and Environment of Professional Training and Education where Professionals are developed over Skills and not merely Credibility. THIS IS CSSRL BUSINESS FOUNDATION.

CSSRL welcomes various interested Professionals / Entrepreneurs / Universities to study its Global Franchise Initiative and join in developing Certified Security Professionals with Credibility and Skills Both.

Feel free to mail us at info@cssrl.in or call us at +91-9219666821.
