Ethical hacking is a mix of sexiness and boring bits. Unlike real-life hackers, you may only have days to compromise systems. What’s more, you will be expected to document and explain your methods and findings. Penetration testing has been called one of the most frustrating jobs in the infosec field, but it’s also one of the most creative. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to employ your technical skills and you’ll almost always be thinking on your feet.

According to Payscale, the median salary for a Penetration Tester is $81,356 (2019 figures). Overall, you can expect to take home a total pay of $49,252 – $134,946.

Batches starting from 6th April 2020. The duration of the batch will be for 4 months where students will have access to lectures by IITR Professors and Cybersecurity experts teaching you all you need to learn to start your career in Cybersecurity. QnA and mentorship will be provided for the said duration by IIT alumni and TAs.


1. Familiarity with programming concepts and algorithms
2. Knowledge of Windows, Linux and UNIX operating systems
3. Have entry-level cybersecurity certification or similar knowledge in the field
