The workshop covered broad contours of relevant Indian laws and facilitated the development of a precise and nuanced vocabulary for reporting on issues at the intersection of technology and security.


  • On Day 1, we introduced participants to the Fundamentals of the Internet with a focus on the physical infrastructure of the internet, wireless communication mechanisms and essential computer components.
  • On Day 2, we delved into Dismantling the concept of a Cyber Attack, where primary theoretical models for cyber threat and cyber attack analysis and prevalent types of cyber attacks, cyber vulnerabilities and exploits were covered. 
  • On Day 3, we provided an overview of the Geopolitics of Cyber War to equip professionals with knowledge of key threat actors in cyberspace and their operational dynamics. Participants also engaged in a real-time tactical exercise for an immersive understanding of concepts and theory presented during the course of the workshop.
