Participants will reveal their concepts in the finale, proving their technical viability and real-world application.

“Participants in this Hackathon are embarking on a journey of creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving,” stated Balaji Srivastava, DG, BPR&D. It is their opportunity to create, contribute, and have an impact on digital security for a better tomorrow.”

While emphasizing the significance of this event, AICTE chairman Prof TG Sitharam stated, “KAVACH-2023 challenges India’s innovative minds to envision ideas and frameworks in the domain of cybersecurity, leveraging artificial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning, automation, big data, and cloud computing.”
