DU admission 2018: The course will teach students about vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, and will teach students to check the resilience of systems in the face of data breach, hacking and privacy.

Delhi University has extended the last date of registrations by three weeks for those applying to Post Graduate Diploma in Cyber Security and Law until June 30. Officials said that this was to give applicants, who were unaware of the new course beginning this year, more time to apply.

“This is the first year we have started the course, so not many students are aware of it. We also got a few requests from applicants asking the same,” explained Sunaina Kanojia the officer on special duty at the Institute of Cyber Security and Law, who added that around 900 students had already applied.
