About Rahul Sasi- Founder CTO- CloudSEK

Rahul has been in the cybersecurity space ever since he was in college, back in 2006. He was a contributing member to various cybersecurity forums and open source projects. In 2009 (last year of Engineering), he got a 6-month internship opportunity with iSight Partners, a Cyber Security start-up. Unfortunately, the college rules did not allow him to take it up, and he had a choice to make. Which he did and decided to follow his heart. He quit engineering and went to work for iSight. There was no looking back from there. At iSight, he was the first technical researcher for their office in India. With all the after office hours he spent on research, he made a name for himself in the chaotic world of Cybersecurity and got invitations to over 18 countries as a speaker. Later in 2015 iSight got acquired by FireEye. That’s when he decided to bring together the emerging disciplines of machine and Cybersecurity together and founded CloudSEK

About Sourabh Issar, CEO- CloudSEK:

Sourabh’s exposure to Cybersecurity started as early as 1999. At the turn of the century, late 1990s, viruses were coming of age, cross-border cyber terrorism was picking up and IIM Calcutta had a campus full of “fresh out of IIT” computer engineers trying their hands at all kinds of gray areas. As IT Rep, he was responsible for the security of the entire technology infra of the campus. And the best experience he could ever get in cybersecurity. The next few years, he spent in pursuing the “American dream”. He worked with the likes of Wipro, HCL, Mastek, and Mphasis. He helped a number of marquee Fortune 500 companies achieve their digital inspirations with leadership roles in sales, marketing, and product management. After 10 years, and having lived the dream, he again got restless, and yearned for the innovation and action happening back in India. He moved back with family to India and started focusing on cybersecurity, automation and AI. That’s when he met Rahul and joined CloudSEK.
