In today’s technologically driven advanced world, the internet is like the breathing soul of every company or business, be it a small vendor or a corporate giant. In this global village, everyone has access to the internet and everyone needs to use the internet for their day to day activities and because of this need, people are prone to cyber-attacks. Cybersecurity reports by Cisco show that thirty-one percent of organizations have at some point encountered cyber-attacks on their operations technology and this is worrisome. Some of the threats faced by companies today range from a data breach, insecure application user interface (API), cloud attack, loss of data, malware attack, hacking, shadow IT system and much more. Not only cyber-attacks corrupt files, damage systems but one can also lose their finances and even their confidential information can leak. This puts anyone using the internet at great risk.

Leading the company to new heights, Dr. Kshitij Adhlakha serves as the CEO of Secugenius. Dr. Kshitij is an entrepreneur, investor, international speaker, author and cybersecurity expert having 10+ years of work experience of handling projects in different domains of cybersecurity. The secret to his success lies within his leadership style that is based on two simple things. “Firstly to lose the fear of failure and self-doubt. We often shy away from great opportunities and even greater ideas just for the fear of failing and being wrong. We tend to doubt our abilities and think that our ideas aren’t good enough; maybe we should have joined the rat race like everybody else and then the fear of failing rushes in. Cut loose all these ‘maybe’s’,” shares Dr. Kshitij. “Secondly, there’s a thin line between being a leader and a boss. A leadership position has a lot of responsibilities. So rather than delegating all the work and standing afar, I always take part. I shoulder responsibilities as well and take my team along with me towards the road of success. I use my position for the advantage of the greater good…..I make the change happen.”

Winding down for Dr. Kshitij is reading books and listening to good soulful music, every morning and before going to bed. “It works like a therapy for me. Whenever work stress pulls me down, I uplift myself with a good book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other hand. I just sit back and relax, perfect unwinding partners,” shares Dr. Kshitij.
A bright future
Dr. Kshitij’s plan for Secugenius is future centric. The main goal is to develop a one-stop solution for all enterprises in need of cyber management. Secugenius strive to cater to all the cyber needs of people and build modules and services that would help in achieving it. Last but not the least, the company aims at generating awareness about cyber management; how having a proper cyber management platform can affect the growth of different enterprises vertically and how in the absence of it the enterprises might suffer.
“I have a single aspiration; to build a secure cyber future for everyone,” says Dr. Kshitij.
