When Rahul Sasi re-enters the portals of Anna University to give a talk organised by the government this week, it will be a proud moment for him. It was from this very university that he dropped out years ago. Today, Rahul is considered to be one of the best ethical hackers in the country. For Rahul, who has his roots in Kerala, this has been a dream run.
Rahul believes he learned more things from outside college. He started with working as a security consultant for a small company. Later, he got a job as a researcher in an international company. He then worked with Citrix before starting his own firm CloudSek, which focuses on Artificial Intelligence and Security. Rahul has given talks on hacking in almost 20 countries.
It all started in college for Rahul. The first hack done by him was into the bio-metric system.
