This initiative endeavours to shape the future champions of cybersecurity. Quick Heal aids students and faculty in colleges with skills in secured programming. Knowledge is shared via trained teachers and volunteers to students, while the provision for an online resource portal has also been made.
- Faculty Development Programme: As part of this initiative, Quick Heal has partnered with select Computer Science colleges in Maharashtra. The teachers there are trained in advanced level C and C++, as per industry standards. This training is based on special modules structured by the Quick Heal R&D division. They are designed with the objective of supporting the creation of secure and robust programming applications by the students. Workshops are also often conducted, at no charge.
- Student Resource Web Portal: High-quality resources and training are often expensive and hard to access for students aiming to be a part of the IT industry. Furthermore, newer recruits are not fully equipped when it comes to security in programming. Thus, Quick Heal has created a resource web portal where students can learn and understand secured programming. The portal hosts modules from various courses on the subject, while bridging the gap between the industry and academia. It is free to use and remotely accessible, ensuring that students from all backgrounds can benefit from it. The resources are provided by Quick Heal. However, the portal itself has been developed by students, to ensure maximum usability. This initiative creates better avenues for students through improved skills and job generation.
