B.E-Computer Science (IOT & Cybersecurity including Blockchain Technology)
Sir MVIT is adding a New Undergraduate Branch : Computer Science (IOT & Cybersecurity with Blockchain Technology) from the Academic Year 2022-23 which has been approved by All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi with an intake of 60 seats. A Blockchain is a decentralized, distributed and public digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers so that the record cannot be altered retroactively without the alteration of all subsequent blocks and the consensus of the network.
Cybersecurity refers technological solutions used to protect the integrity of networks, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. Internet of Things are sensors and actuators connected by networks to computing systems. These systems can monitor or manage the health and actions of connected objects and machines. By 2026 globally approximately 26.4 billion IoT devices are expected to be in service. It has been also projected that there would be around 11.4 billion consumer IoT devices and 13.3 billion enterprise IoT devices globally by 2025.
IoT is being used to create smart infrastructure in various verticals such as Agriculture & Smart Farming, Automotive, Defence, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Power, Safety & Surveillance, Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Transportation. Blockchain Technology enhance the security of IoT devices and their associated networks by providing a trusted sharing service, where information is reliable and can be traceable. Blockchain technology allows data sources to be identified at any time and data remains immutable over time, increasing its security. Blockchain improves Cybersecurity practices through encryption and strengthened connections.
Career paths in IOT, Cyber security & Blockchain are Non-Linear & also Multidirectional.
Internet of Things (IoT) industry could be valued at up to $12.6 trillion globally by 2030, according to McKinsey research.IoT global market size is expected to reach $ 1 Trillion by 2026 from mere connectivity to IoT-powered applications, platforms, and services. Blockchain technology has the potential to boost according to PwC’s “Time for trust” report global gross domestic product (GDP) by US$1.76 trillion & creating 40 million job opportunities by 2030.In India Blockchain has the potential to boost $62.2 billion & 3.2 million job by 2030.
India’s Cybersecurity sector is estimated to create 1.5 million job by 2025 and is projected to grow by 32% by 2028.Report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) states “There is an undersupply of cyber professionals—a gap of more than 3 million worldwide who can provide cyber leadership, test and secure systems, and train people in digital hygiene"

Internet of Things Linking Metaverse With The Worldhttps://www.thecoinrepublic.com/2022/07/01/iot-taking-the-metaverse-to-the-next-level/
When a real person moves to an area with variable weather, for instance, the replica of that person in the Metaverse could respond biophysically in a certain way.
Apple, Google, and Microsoft commit to expanded support for standard for a common passwordless sign-in standard created by the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium(W3C). https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2022/05/apple-google-and-microsoft-commit-to-expanded-support-for-fido-standard/
The new capability will allow websites and apps to offer consistent, secure, and easy passwordless sign-ins to consumers across devices and platforms.
In order to secure Consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices, Telecommunication Engineering Centre(TEC), under Department of Telecommunications, Ministry of Communications, has released a report “Code of Practice for Securing Consumer Internet of Things(IoT)” as a baseline requirement aligned with global standards and best practices. These guidelines will help in securing consumer IoT devices & ecosystem as well as managing vulnerabilities.
India’s New Cybersecurity Directives issued by CERT-In
Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), released a circular containing cybersecurity directives to government and private agencies, mandating the reporting of cybersecurity incidents.
The IoT devices must undergo mandatory testing & certification prior to sale, import or use in India, in compliance to the MTCTE (Mandatory testing and Certification of Telecom Equipment) guidelines issued by Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Government of India under the Indian Telegraph (Amendment) Rules, 2017. National Trust Center (NTC) ensures the registration of certified IOT devices.
