What is Amrita InCTF Junior?

A national level cybersecurity contest for school students in India. No prior knowledge is required for taking part and participation in the contest is fully free.

Realizing the important role cybersecurity is going to play now and in the future for a safer world, many countries are now introducing cybersecurity education at a school level to develop interest and nurture talent in the area.

There are many other countries that train students at the school level in various ways. A recent NASSCOM report states that there will be a huge shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals as much as 1.5 million jobs will be vacant in India alone by 2021.

These jobs are also very high paying jobs. Through InCTF junior we hope to encourage and expose students to cybersecurity and help them to develop interest and skills in this field.
