Dignified Speaker at Cybersecurity Conferences, TEDx Organizer, Educationalist, and Cybersecurity Consultant.
Vinod’s cybersecurity expeditions span over 15 years, in which duration he has built infySEC, a firm that initially began by offering cybersecurity training. It then grew into a cybersecurity consultancy firm for multinational corporates and cyber defence wings of various governments. Finally, infySEC evolved into a firm that develops futuristic cloud-based cybersecurity products whose clients range from Startups and MSMEs to Fortune 500 companies.
Vinod always had the vision to fortify security in the cyberspace. He says that there are two kinds of people in the world. Those who know that they have been compromised and the others who are oblivious to the fact that they’ve been compromised. Vinod’s work essentially tries to educate people enough for them to safeguard themselves from malicious hackers.
