What we'll do


In 1999, Vikram upon completion of his Bachelors in Army College started his professional career into Cyber Security with E-Lock, US.

The very next year, President Bill Clinton used their product for approving Digital ACT (making digital signatures legal and accepted for the first time anywhere in the world). From 2004, he worked to build three Cyber Security companies and filed two patents for his work in the Cyber Security domain.

Now, Vikram's focus is more on Cyber Security related "prevention and awareness". He loves open-source and open collaboration. At present, he is working on building "AI-driven Code Anamoly Detection" under his Blue Bricks company and has recently co-founded "The Advisory Network" to help nano/small to medium companies become more aware of security, automation and how to handle people, process and products.

Vikram will be taking us through the good, the bad and the ugly of open-source including:

1. A few "ugly facts" about open-source.

2. Why open-source is good (if not great).

3. "The bad" in open source.

4. "Checks And Balances" to get you started.
