Decade ago, security was no big concern for companies, banks, etc. But today, the scenario has changed. Giants like HSBC, Microsoft, etc. are employing Cyber Security experts to ensure security of their confidential data from hackers and in case of disasters.
1. Artificial intelligence and robotics

Artificial intelligence (AI) is arguably the most exciting field in robotics. Software jobs are still pretty lucrative: Only that robotics, artificial intelligence and Big Data now rake in the money, while mature application services sink fast in the pronounced migration of value toward emerging technologies.

2. Big data analytics

Big data analytics is the process of examining large and varied data sets — i.e., big data — to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations, market trends, customer preferences and other useful information that can help organizations make more-informed business decisions.
Yes, there has been a consistent growth in the demand for people who know Big Data, Hadoop and related technologies.

3. Computer-assisted education

The use of computers and software to assist education and/or training, computer-assisted education brings many benefits and has many uses. For students with learning disabilities, for instance, it can provide personalized instruction and enable students to learn at their own pace, freeing the teacher to devote more time to each individual. The field is still growing but promising, with many educators praising its ability to allow students to engage in active, independent and play-based learning.

4. Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics uses computers and algorithms to acquire, manage, and analyze biological information. It’s a multidisciplinary field that meshes the fields of computer science, with the world of molecular biology to develop databases of information than can be useful to improving patient care and practice.

5. Cyber security

Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, security includes both cybersecurity and physical security.
Cyber Security domain is huge and will be required wherever there is IT.
So just like you require an IT administrator , or a developer as the maker , there will be a cyber security specialist as the checker in medium or large scale IT companies.

Scope is near same as in other countries around the world:

1. State departments responsible for IT SEC and Cyber Security on national level (such as Indian CSIRT under the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology)
2. Universities, Banks
