"Think new ideas and work hard to implement them, but don't accept results instantly".
An author, a cyber-security expert, and an entrepreneur, Trishneet is surely a multitasker and an avid speaker on security solutions. It is not hard to perceive Trishneet as a regular kid going about his career, but even at a young age, he has been able to achieve a whole lot. With no family background in computers, Arora, a first-generation entrepreneur, has been able to start his own company, which provides cyber security solutions to many corporates against data theft. In addition to it he has also been an IT advisor to Gujarat and Punjab police offering valuable training to senior level officers in cracking down on cyber-crime.
It all started when he was 11 years old when he got his first computer. Soon he started to experiment with it and in turn learned all about computer hardware. He has also authored books like Hacking TALK with Trishneet Arora and The Hacking Era, which have given him much needed acclamation. His peers consider him a humble person with innovative skills when it comes to online security solutions.
