About ISEA Project
Looking at the growing importance of information security for individual and organizations, Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY), MCIT, Govt. of India has formulated and initiated a project in 2005 entitled Information Security Education and Awareness (ISEA) which was completed in 2014 and Phase II of the said Project was approved in April 2014 with an outlay of Rs. 96.08 Crore for a period of 5 years.

NIT Hamirpur has also been associated with this project during Phase-I and is member of Phase-II alongwith other academic institutions such as IITs, NITs and IIITs. CDAC Hyderabad is Project Management Unit for this project. For Phase-II of the project, NIT Hamirpur has received Rs. 36.06 Lac under various heads. Based upon the faculty expertise of the Department, NIT Hamirpur has opted thematic areas of information security in wireless networks, mobile ad hoc networks, and wireless sensor networks under this project. As a result of participation in this project, we have created facilities in network security and creating more lab facilities, have retrofitted various security related courses and projects at BTech and MTech level, and guiding PhDs information security.

Responsibilities


ISEA Project Phase-II aims at generation of quality human resource in the area of information security at various levels by introducing information security curriculum at formal education level and non-formal training programs, faculty training, etc.

 
Educational Objective

The responsibilities under educational objective of the project are being addressed by:

  • Introduction of Information Security courses in B.Tech., M.Tech., Dual Degree and Ph.D. programmes.
  • Student/Staff/Faculty training in information security.
  • Research in thematic areas by the students (during B.Tech.-Project,. M.Tech.-dissertation, Ph.D.-thesis) and faculty.

 
Besides this, courseware and learning material can be developed related to information security.
 

Awareness Objective
Organization of training/workshops/seminars to create awareness among students/staff/faculty/administration/public.
