In today’s digital world, there is always an ever-increasing emphasis on information security. Cyber Security,one of the biggest challenges the IT industry is facing since its inception drives me to pursue a career in Computer security. My first practical exposure on security was when I was developing Mobiles based SAP applications in 2011 for one of the top US clients an oilfield services company.
The challenges I came across in building secure applications persuaded me to become a security professional. Since then it was no turning back. My hunger to grow and learn in this field landed me an opportunity to work as an IT Manager in one of the largest scheduled banks under the Gobo of India.
