My Story
                                                  My Journey in Cybersecurity

From Practitioner to Educator to Award Winning Author:

My path in cybersecurity has been a fascinating evolution, spanning various roles and experiences. Starting as a practitioner, I transitioned to a student, then a researcher, and eventually found myself teaching essential concepts of cyber risk management to management students.

As a CEO of an award-winning payment systems company for over a decade, I navigated risk scenarios and corporate governance issues related to information technology deployment. This firsthand experience provided valuable insights into the intrinsic connection between IT solutions and cybersecurity. Leading the development of IT products across diverse industry verticals—such as banking, telecom, corporate, and government—expanded my understanding of industry-specific requirements, user behaviour, system performance, and compliance.

My educational journey includes a master’s degree from Sheffield-Hallam University (UK), a PG Diploma in Computer Systems, specialized courses in Cybersecurity from Harvard University, as well as Cyber Law and Cyber Forensics from the National Law School of India University. I am a certified corporate director and Fellow of The Institute of Directors.


Empowering Cybersecurity Knowledge: From Research to Authorship

My journey through the realms of Cyber Risk Management, Cyber Law, Cyber Forensics, Data Protection, and Cybersecurity has been a rich tapestry of experiences and learning. These insights have found expression in the numerous articles and books I have authored on cybersecurity and cyber risk management.

The current cyber threat landscape is more formidable than ever, affecting both individuals and organizations. I am deeply committed to raising awareness and enhancing knowledge in the field. My audience spans business managers, professionals, leaders, owners, board members, and students. In today’s digital landscape, it is imperative for the workforce to be well-versed in cybersecurity methods and processes to navigate risks securely.

My books have received National and International acclaim:

To further this mission, I have contributed several articles to newspapers and online publications. Additionally, I have authored the following books two of which have received awards.
