Cyberverse Foundation Center of Excellence

In April 2022, MSB joined hands with the Bherunda Foundation, a charitable trust run by the erstwhile royal family of Mysuru, and founded the Cyberverse Foundation, a COE in the emerging domain of cybersecurity. The vision of Cyberverse is to be the beacon for cybersecurity in India. The mission of Cyberverse is to facilitate the development of a very robust and resilient cybersecurity ecosystem in India.

At the heart of this COE for cybersecurity is a state-of-the-art phygital (physical plus virtual) lab. There is no comparable cybersecurity facility in the public domain in India. Cyberverse, which is engaged in capacity building in the realm of cybersecurity, offers a variety of cybersecurity training and certification programs; these programs span the gamut from basic awareness to highly specialized cybersecurity skills; they are offered to academia, industry, and governments. The phygital lab is an integral part of these training programs.

MSB is entering into partnerships with foreign universities to facilitate student certification and faculty research programs in the domain of cybersecurity. Students of MSB will have an unprecedented opportunity to develop and hone their skills in cybersecurity.
