Pukhraj Singh
Co-founder & Director
Pukhraj Singh played an instrumental role in setting up the cyber-warfare operations centre of the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), India’s technical intelligence agency.

He was laterally inducted into the NTRO from the private sector at a very short notice after the 26/11 attacks. It was a multi-disciplinary tenure, ranging from geopolitical doctrine formulation, eventually approved by the Prime Minister, to the very brass tacks of cyber operations.

The inputs from Pukhraj’s small but highly disruptive division helped chart the course of some seminal government initiatives on cybersecurity like the National Critical Infrastructure Protection Centre (NCIIPC), Inter-ministerial Task Force on Cyber Defence & Preparedness, and Information Security Guidelines & Procedures of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Later on, he spent some time at Aadhaar, India’s flagship social security project as the national cybersecurity manager.

Pukhraj also had very brief stints with Symantec’s DeepSight Threat Intelligence Team – industry’s first threat intelligence platform – and startups like Third Brigade (acquired by Trend Micro in 2009) and Blue Lane (acquired by VMWare in 2008).

He has spoken at a variety of national security forums and hacking conferences.

Abhijeet Kunwar
Chief Architect
Abhijeet is a graduate from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. He has more than a decade of experience in designing, developing and delivering software systems.

He has been working on Big Data tools and technologies for the past 4-5 years. He has delved into the intricacies of widely-scalable systems – which involve the churning of terabytes of data daily – and extracting meaningful metrics useful from a business perspective. Abhijeet is completely open to embrace latest tools and technologies, and different programming languages.

He thinks that information technology and software engineering (especially Big Data) should enter people's life on a day-to-day basis. As per his future vision, just like the Internet of Things, data generated by actions of every citizen should be analysed by respective governments and former's concerns and/or issues should be handled on a person-to-person basis – the next step after creating and implementing uniform policies for the whole community, nation or state, etc.

He also believes that for becoming an innovative software professional, a person should also focus on social sciences because, after all, Engineering and Sciences are means to meet our socio-economic requirements as an individual as well as a member of a larger ecosystem.
