A CEO is often envisioned as an older adult in his forties or fifties who has life all figured out. We don’t expect a 19-year-old who almost dropped out of school. But that is precisely what Trishneet Arora is; a young tech wizard whose company is now mentioned in the Forbes 500 list. So what led to this journey? Let’s find out in this blog.
Trishneet was born in Punjab on November 2, 1993. He started fiddling with computers when he was just a child and dismantled his father’s computer at the age of 8. He was also very interested in trying to hack into his father’s system when he was 11 years old. He almost dropped out of high school but then decided to complete his education through correspondence.
A door into opportunity:
In 2013, Trishneet Arora was given the opportunity to give a keynote speech with Mr.Yashwant Sinha, Former Finance Minister of India, at a Business Relations Conference in Gujarat.
Following this, he began to work on cyber-crime cases for the police and also conducted a training session with Punjab police on cyber-crime investigation and forensics. Since then, Trishneet has trained numerous IPS officers, Crime Branch Cell officials, bank employees, and CBI Officers.
He soon set up his cybersecurity firm, TAC Security, at 19 years old. TAC Security offers vulnerability assessment and penetration testing services for corporate firms. TAC Security is the first Indian cybersecurity company to work with a US government law enforcement agency. It is currently the largest auditor of UPI applications, assessing over 10 billion UPI transactions for over 200 banking applications. TAC Security has top Fortune 500 and 100 companies as its clients and provides them security through its ESOF product. The company had clients including Reliance Industries, Amul, Avon Cycles, Ralco Tyres, and top government organizations including CBI, Gujarat Police, and Punjab Police.
