My journey into cybersecurity took me from being a practitioner to student, then researcher and onwards to teaching management students the essentials of cyber risk management. The cyberthreat challenge today is more daunting than ever for individuals as well as organizations. I strongly believe that is important that today’s workforce is fully conversant with cybersecurity methods and processes and the objective of my book is an effort to enhance the knowledge of cybersecurity and cyber risk management among business managers, leaders, board members and students.
I have spent the greater part of my life (over 35 years) in the IT industry in different roles including being the CEO of an award-winning Payment systems company for over a decade. This exposed my to various risk scenarios and issues relating to corporate risk management, governance, and strategy, especially with respect to the deployment and use of Information Technology platforms and solutions provided me exceptional insight into how they are inherently related to cybersecurity.
My experiences of leading the development of IT products and solutions for multiple industry verticals such as banking, telecom, corporate and government for global markets, further enabled me to grasp important aspects of requirements of different industries, user behaviour, system performance, information security and compliance requirements.
My education includes a master’s degree from Sheffield-Hallam University, UK, a PG Diploma in Computer Systems and my deep interest in Cybersecurity, Cyber Law, Cyber Forensics & Data Protection took me to complete a PG Diploma (From National Law School of India University) and other specialised courses and certifications in this area.
I have had the privilege of speaking at several industry forums and conferences and have been the recipient of awards including Indian Leadership Award for Industrial Development from All India Achievers Foundation, Most Talented Retail Professional of India Award from CMO Asia, Best Practice Leader Award, South Asia at OD & Talent Management Summit and Leadership Award from Indira Group of Institutes.
My research, experiences and education in the areas of Cyber Risk Management, Cyber law, Cyber forensics, Data Protection and Cyber security have provided me with many insights. The 16 key insights that I have gleaned and covered in this book, explain and elaborate key concepts and principles necessary for managing cyber risks. I have used appropriate case studies and best practices to illustrate and inspire further exploration of the subject.
I am a certified corporate director and Fellow-Institute of Directors and currently live in Mumbai, India. I serve as a Corporate Advisor & Mentor, Member of the Academic Advisory Board of the Pace University--Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, New York, and is a visiting faculty for Cybersecurity at leading Management Institutes.

KINDLE PICK OF THE WEEK- RICK LIMPERT
In the post-COVID world, millions of employees now find themselves working from home, leaving organizations scrambling to manage cyber risks as workers use often-weak home communications infrastructure.
But pandemic aside, every organization’s key information assets are heavily exposed to cyber threats, making it one of the leading causes of theft and loss.
In his new book, Ajay Singh demystifies and simplifies cyber risk management so anyone can not only understand the threats, but acknowledge and implement the many opportunities that exist to safeguard against cybercrime..
‘The author in this very exhaustive book wants all business leaders to be aware that cyber security is now a CXO issue. You can no longer say that let the IT department handle it, as a cyber-attack can bring your business down to its knees, while seriously impacting your credibility with your customers.’
