For 26-year-old Saket Modi, trustworthiness is a defining trait. Companies—from airlines and banks to restaurant chains—have been flocking to his six-year-old cybersecurity firm Lucideus Labs, giving it access to their IT systems. They want Lucideus to scan their IT networks for security vulnerabilities, and suggest remedial measures. Even the National Payments Council of India (NPCI), India’s umbrella organisation for all retail payment systems, has reposed its trust in Modi to hack into their systems and look for threats.
“Cybersecurity today is a board-level topic and companies need to proactively ensure security,” says Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief analyst and CEO at research and advisory firm Greyhound Research. “Lucideus may not have the scale and depth of an IBM or an Accenture, but they have been doing a remarkable job, and have taken the cybersecurity space by storm with their expertise in the area.”
