The ISB Institute of Data Sciences and the SCSC, the collaborative body of Cyberabad police and the information technology industry, will undertake joint collaborative research activities on cyber security in areas of mutual interest.
They will endeavour to collectively publish reports that inform policy practices in cyber security, create projects for ISB's AMPBA students to work on as a part of their coursework and strive to organise joint conferences and workshops to bring together academia, government, policy, and industry.
