Cybersecurity

What does cyber security mean :

Cyber security is the protection of internet-connected systems, including hardware, software and data, from cyber attackers who are trying to gain unauthorized access to your system.

Why is cyber security required?

With increasing cyber dependency, there has been an excessive rise in cyber crimes as well, which has raised the need and importance of cyber security. Cybersecurity ensures safety to almost every technological activity.

The core functionality of cyber security involves protecting and defending information and systems from major cyber threats.  Cyber threats can be posed in many different forms (e.g., application attacks, malware,phishing, ransomware, exploit kits). Unfortunately, cyber attackers have learned to launch automated and sophisticated attacks using these tactics – at lower and lower costs. As a result, keeping up with cyber security strategy and operations can be a challenge, particularly in government and enterprise networks where, in their most disruptive form, cyber threats often take aim at secret, political, military or infrastructural assets of a nation, or its people. Some threats are outlined below in more detail.

Is industrial automation a real job eater?

 

Introduction:-

Is automation taking away jobs?. This question has led scholars and analysts to ponder on this issue and come up with a definite argument. So how did this all start? With electricity being available to  industries in the early 20th century it was in the 1930’s that Tom Ford came up with an automated assembly line, which reduced the time of production and increased the number of cars by many folds, This was start of new era of automation. For the last decade of the 20th century the process of automation was moreover the same. But now everything has changed.

What’s different this time:-

The claim that recent technological advancements, especially artificial intelligence, automation, robotics, internet of things (IoT) are a threat to jobs is an argument that’s turned on its head.

If you take a closer look at the jobs that are replaced by the machines they are mostly manual labour related and blue collar jobs.

In the last couple of decades’ advancements in workflow software, content management, business rules management, productivity software, including the recent robotic process automation – in short, most information technologies – have, in fact, aided progress in orchestration and decision making as well. This means that not only the manual work, but supervision and management jobs have also been replaced by technologies.

Does this mean all the managers and blue collared workers will lose their job. The answer is no! Assuming the threat is real we should take a look at the underlying pattern here. The pattern being: automation primarily replaces the repetitive, banal and conventional parts of a knowledge worker’s job, freeing up the individual’s bandwidth to perform the real tasks expected of the knowledge worker, also creating further cash flow for the business to grow and as a whole scope of work expected of people.

The flip side of the debate is that people having a particular manual skill are still losing their jobs. Obviously, there’s an immediate burden on people to upgrade their skills or change working habits to perform real knowledge work.  However, that is what have precisely been the expectations of business as well as workers, since eternally. People get bored doing the same things over and over again, and without an external ascribe to improve their working environment, the productivity as well as motivation goes down over time.

At Arya College Jaipur:

Arya Group of Colleges offers best in class automated labs. It is one of the only few campuses which has SMT (Surface-Mount Technology) machinery available for students, which help the students to simulate the on hand machine environment. It’s not just this the best engineering college is the first MSME (Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises) incubation center in the state of Rajasthan . This enables the student to harness his creativity under the guidance of experts, and gives them a learning edge against the other students as they have already acquired the technical knowledge which will be required by them in the next 5 years.

Conclusion:-

As a wise man once said “If you are not living on the edge you are taking too much  space.” In this world where  the industries are continuously evolving- machines replacing manual labour- the inventor threatened by its own invention. The only way to thrive is to keep on increasing your knowledge of the industry.

To put the debate we started with to rest. No, automation is not taking away jobs. The increase in the global industrial has never been this enormous. The only thing which automation is inflicting is rise in the demand of more technical sound workers who are efficient. The demand for skilled labour has never been this huge. The only question that remains is whether you are skillful enough to take the job or not.

Digital India

Introduction:

In the year 2015 the union government embarked on a flagship programme to transform India into a digitally empowered society and a knowledgeable economy. The project was called  Digital India Programme.

The initiative is centered on three key points

  • The development of digital infrastructure.
  • Delivery of government services digitally.
  • Eradication of digital literacy.  

Since the launch India has charted a unique path to digitization, the impact of which is inclusive, empowering and trans-formative. Today India is amongst the top two countries globally on many dimensions of digital adoption, and by the Year 2022 India’s digital economy is likely to cross one trillion dollars. India is becoming a world superpower in the field of digitization.

Impact and Growth:

The digital India initiative has led to a digital revolution in the country. The transformations it has brought about in the lives of citizens today is revolutionary. India is  making tremendous progress in the field of digital infrastructure, broadband connectivity is reaching villages. Over hundred crore mobile phones are active in the country. According to a report by Internet and Mobile Association of India internet data is becoming the tool for service delivery. India’s Internet services sector is expected to reach 76.4 billion dollars in 2020 to up by forty four percent from its current evaluation of 30.8 billion dollars in this report.

Since its launch significant progress has been made under the digital India programme in three and a half years more than 12,000 rural post office branches have been linked digitally.  Electronic transactions related to e-governance projects in the country have increased significantly in order to strengthen digital infrastructure. Two lakh seventy four thousand two hundred and forty six kilometres of optic fibre connecting more than one lakh gram panchayats under Bharat net has been laid. There’s been a rapid expansion in the network of common service centres which act as access points for delivery of various electronic services to villages in India positioned as strategic cornerstone of the digital India programme. VG Gao or digital village is conceptualized as a connected village where citizens can avail various e-Services of the central government state governments and private players.  In the last few years India’s digital index has grown tremendously it rose by 56 percent during 2014 to 2017 from 18 to 29 on a scale of one to hundred. This has placed the country’s second in terms of growth among 17 emerging and mature digital economies. According to McKinsey Global Institute there’s also been a steady rise in the use of Internet users in the country in the last few years due to increased availability of mobile Internet in India. India has around 300 million daily active users up from 10 to 15 million daily active users in 2011 at the current pace of growth the total number of Internet users in India is expected to be 650 million by 2020. Besides the government has also introduced a number of initiatives like digital lockers to share documents electronically the cloud storage service is now being used by millions of Indians to enable digital payments.

By 31st March 2019 the digital India initiative is not only creating empowerment but also generating employment opportunities and is promoting entrepreneurship.

The digital India initiative is transforming not just the technology space but also contributing to environmental changes, e-generation technologies will help in lowering the carbon footprint, reducing fuel consumption and waste management.

It is the commitment of Arya Group of Colleges that they will provide students which are profound in every aspect to the industry.   

Conclusion:-

India is at the forefront of driving the global digital revolution forward. India’s economy is rapidly converting into a digital economy with a latter expected to touch 1 trillion dollar mark by 2022 by 2030 India will be 10 trillion dollar economy with half of this accounted for by the digital economy.

The impact of digital India campaign has still not gained full potency.The rural areas are still deprived of the benefits of digitization to a larger extent. Network issues, lack of digital infrastructure, low penetration of smartphones, poor maintenance of the existing infrastructure are still impediments in the way of a fully digitalised and modernised India.   

 

Block Chain: The Future of Information Technology

Introduction:

Block chain technology is the most hyped technology of the recent times as it is used to maintain the privacy and secrecy of the data in the fields of:

  • Finance
  • Trade
  • Stock exchange
  • Digital identity verification Syndicated lending
  • Hedge funding.

Origin:

This technique was originally developed in the year 1991 by the group of researchers with the purpose to timestamp digital documents so that it was not possible to backdate them. But this technology became famous when Satoshi Nakamoto used this technology to create of the most famous crypto currencies called Bitcoin.

A block chain is a distributed ledger that is completely open to anyone. It has an interesting property that once the data is recorded inside a block chain, it becomes very difficult to change it.

How does block chain work:

Well, let’s take a closer look at the block chain. Each block contains:

  1. Some data
  2. Hash of the block (like a fingerprint)
  3. Hash of the previous blockThe data stored inside the block depends on the type of the block chain. For example, the Bitcoin block chain stores the details about the transactions like the information of the sender, receiver and the amount of the Bitcoins that are to be transacted.

    Block chain is like P2P software, that is, peer to peer software. The system of every peer is the part of the chain making it impossible for anyone to breach this orientation. For example: If a person wants to hack into P2P chain, he will have to hack into all the peer systems at the same time, which is just next to impossible, thus making the system breach proof of any perilous activities.

    Future opportunities:

    There is a world economic forum report that says that 10% of the Global GDP of the world would be stored on block chain by 2025. It also says that 20% of the financial institutions have undertaken block chain projects in one form or the other. Also 2.3 billion dollars would be spent on block chain projects by 2021. To me, block chain is the driving force of the new business model and the new career opportunities and the new technologies that are yet to come which will change the world in terms of the financial storing of the data also it is a known fact that for every block chain developer there are around 14 Jobs available in the world right now it is the number one and the fastest growing scale on the various job sites also these job sites give 200% better  salary to what they give to an average developer.  The biggest impediments for these job sites are to find the right talent and equipment that would fulfill these roles.

    From the students perspective it becomes a concern that he or she will have to learn from the best of engineering colleges which- can help them to learn on these latest emerging technologies of the world- one of such Institute, which believes in absorbing the latest technology is Arya Group of Colleges, – ARYA MAIN CAMPUS- Jaipur. With the best of faculties having profound knowledge in such fields the college offers best of SDP (student development programs) to make the student amass these requirements which are quintessential for any good job placement.

     

    Conclusion: Block chain will change the way we communicate with our world. The movement of self-renunciation of the user from h the trusted 3rd party agencies with their information will be marked by the biggest transformation in the history of information technology.
