Tata Consultancy Services, the leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, has partnered with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) of the UK Government to create the Chevening-TCS Scholarship on Cyber Policy for professionals in diverse fields from India. This will be the world’s first cyber security and public policy education programme. This programme builds on considerable bilateral interaction at various levels between India and the UK on the subject of cyber security, and is intended to develop expertise and skills in the areas of cyber security, information assurance and online governance challenges.
The programme will be taught by Cranfield University, an organisation with significant expertise in the areas of cyber security and global security, on its campus at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom at Shrivenham. This programme is targeted at outstanding mid-career professionals from India that have the potential to be leaders in their chosen fields. In the first year, six Indian nationals will be selected to undergo a 12-week programme in the UK. The programme will run for an initial period of three years, with the first course expected to start in February 2014.
