The Right Time to Begin With
The foundation of Skynet Secure Solutions was laid in 2008. At that time, the awareness regarding the information security was very less in the industry. The security information was also low in society and companies were thriving for their survival. However, as the cyber-breaches started rapidly, law enforcement agency’s work started flowing in. Consequently, the demand for the Cybersecurity has increased within the span of last five years. With Sachin’s constant efforts, Skynet Secure Solutions was recently recognised amongst the Top 25 Cybersecurity Consultant Company in India by a prominent magazine.

The Industry Conundrums
Sachin had to face challenges within the industry itself. During the initial establishment of the company, people didn’t take information security seriously. Organisations did not want to invest in security because it was not a favourable ROI. Ethical hackers were considered as a taboo or they were not valued. The society or industries did not take preventive measures until something worse happened. Cyber ruptures like damage, identity theft, and data theft have rendered companies into monetary loss and brand erosion. As these breaches erupted, firms have now started to change the attitude; however, it is still low. The compliance requirement has forced these organizations into investing in information security.

Skynet provides all the security services under one roof. It entails IT security audits, Cybercrime investigation, training in Ethical Hacking, IT Security Audit, Digital Forensics Audits, E-mail Tracing, Cyber Crime Investigations, Help to File Cyber Cell Complaints, and Training in Information Security Domain, and Digital Forensics. The firm provides Government as well as international certification for all its training programs. It has ties with the prestigious associations like Bombay Chambers, Indo American Society, Princeton Academy, and covers almost all the colleges across Mumbai. The organization has delivered Pan India seminars and workshops across all sectors of the industry. Additionally, the company conducts special training program for cyber cell departments across India. Skynet is the only company that have exposure to law enforcement as well as corporates banks.

Acknowledging the Brave Strength
Sachin Dedhia describes his daily motivation and consistent performance by saying “We ethical hackers strive to fight in the cyberspace to secure the data or information or identity”. Comparing data to the new oil, the information security has become an integral part of any industry. It is crucial to secure it.
Sachin believes that the industry is still developing, and a lot of companies are now opening up to hire cybersecurity experts. The ransomware attacks have brought a lot of awareness regarding the protection of digital data. Even the regulators like RBI, SEBI, and IRDA are partnering up with the right security providers to fight against digital crimes.
