Six months course in ITMR was really excellent, as it had answers to our doubts not by words but visually.Before i went there, i only had theoretical assumptions about n/w packets, traffics, cyber crimes. But after a short period not more than month, they broke all my theoretical assumptions by visualizing the concepts. Staffs are very friendly and well trained practically to deal with the subject, in such a way that, they taught us with live demos. Apart from it we also had CEO’s, Manager’s and professional’s from well reputed companies as our batchmates, which gradually improved our knowledge, as they always relate the class with the live problems. To finish things off i would rather say that, i behaved like a “Cyber Detective” during the course than being student.

I am working as an Assistant Professor for Hindustan University and have more than 5 years experience in teaching cyber security courses. I was looking for a cyber security course which would be comprehensive and structured, and which explains the basics to the absolute bleeding edge advanced. The pedantic approach to learning using practical and challenging labs is what made me take the Professional Diploma in Cyber Investigation and Laws certification (PDCIL). I actually learned a lot of very valuable and essential information and still use the course manual. The faculty were incredibly experienced and knowledgeable in the field of Cyber Investigations and Laws and the chance to meet and network with other individuals in the same position was a huge advantage. I now have at least ten other people like me that I can contact with stories questions. Many thanks to Hindustan University and HTC-ITMR.

My name is Ananthi. I come from Sivakasi and I chose to study at The Institute of Technology & Management Research (ITMR) because it offers the unique combination of Cyber Laws and Investigation in information technology in one programme. This diploma degree has given me insight into these two extremely influential parts of modern-day society and the ways in which they complement each other, specifically in a business environment. I enjoy being a student at SDU for two main reasons. First, I have experienced that communicating every day with people with different cultural backgrounds can be quite challenging – for example, minding cultural differences, religious preferences and values and keeping an open mind are some of the important things an international environment can teach a person. The programme Professional Diploma in Cyber Investigations and Laws (PDCIL) stresses a lot the importance of team-work as in today’s global environment, working in teams is a key skill. The second reason why I like this program is related to the lecturers. All of them are really helpful people who enjoy teaching and being challenged by their students and their fresh ideas.
All in all, I recommend this programme to people who would like to develop their interpersonal skills, as well as feel challenged intellectually by the unique mixture of cyber security, laws and investigations.

As you all know, the IT world is constantly evolving as new technology emerges and significance of Digital Crime Investigation growing day by day. Although many institutions offer training for such courses, success lies in choosing the right one. That is where ITMR is different from others. I have just completed PDCIL from ITMR. The curriculum and faculty have helped me immensely not only to understand the subject in detail, but also to apply what I learned in real life situations. Being a student at ITMR has given me both the knowledge and the confidence to start my own business. Now I could run my own company (Ipotek Solutions Pvt.Ltd ) related with what I studied at ITMR. I would like to extend my hearty gratitude to my dearest teacher Dr.Muthukumaran who gave the way to an excellent carrier and the entire faculty for sharing many meaningful experiences and for all the support throughout my studies.

PDCIL course shown what is digital world and taught me how to survive and save ourselves. Thanks to faculties of ITMR, Dr.Muthukumaran and Mohammed sir for supported me and given an offer to work in HTC Global Service.

I had the privilege of attending Big Data / Hadoop Admin training under Dr.Muthukumar at HTC ITMR. Big Data is a new technology in the market and there are only a few who are experience in it. Dr.MuthuKumar is one of them and shared his knowledge on the concept with all of us in a very simple and interesting way. He explained the details of this new technology with lot of practical examples which really helped us to learn it in such a short period. Both the theory and practical sessions helped us in familiarizing the concepts of Big Data. The certification on this course is not only a value addition to our profiles but will also help us in getting Big Data projects from clients and eventually will help in our company’s growth. All together it was a fantastic and thought provoking course from an excellent trainer. Also I would like to thank Mr.Mohammed for sharing information about this course and introducing me to Dr.Muthukumar. Thanks again Dr.Muthukumar for the generous and professional sharing of your knowledge and experience.

PDCIL has helped me understand how the cyber crimes occur and how the investigation is carried on. I am comfortable in court, at the time of marking of document. Though electronic evidence is acceptable in law, I am able to distinguish and explain to the court when it can be marked. Due to the practical experience, I am able to freely analyze the traffic in my office. It is an immense pleasure to thank the my lecture, supporting staff and colleague for their help during my course.
