Converge. Create. Elevate.


SVP, Reliance Industries Limited

I have extensive experience of almost 30 years in working for both Public, Private and Research organizations in senior positions in the area of Cyber security and Information Risk Management ( IRM) and a consistent track record of success in getting initiatives off the ground and flourishing, in the quickest possible time frame. Currently I am the Senior Vice President and Head IRM of Reliance Industries Limited- the largest business conglomerates in India. My key responsibilities here mainly encompasses design and implementation of state of the art Information Security and Information Risk Management processes and technologies in various businesses viz Petroleum Supply chain, Retail,Lifescience etc . Prior to this I worked for almost three years as Executive Director of Paladion Networks- one of the biggest pure play Technology Risk Management company in Asia. I headed the BFSI vertical which constitutes almost 80% of the revenue of the company. Before that I was for a year in Wipro InfoTech as Consulting Advisor, Strategic Information security Services. My role here was to design innovative Technology Risk Management solutions for the BFSI sector. Prior to this I was in IDRBT for 6 years as Faculty and Head Consulting. This 6 Years’ time was very enriching for me in terms of experience and gaining deep insight into various aspects of technology absorption in Banking Industry. Before IDRBT I gained extensive experience in various roles in Reserve Bank of India for almost 18 years, including technology. The rich and varied experience in my formative years largely contributed to my success and achievement in later assignments till date. In my leadership role in all my previous organizations, I believe my USP to be “Regulators perspective blended with that of a technologist, business strategist and cyber security expert”.
