Most tech magnates boast degrees from prestigious institutions, but not Trishneet Arora. His office walls, adorned with awards and accolades, tell a different story. For Trishneet, who dropped out after failing his eighth standard exams, these aren’t just trophies. They’re milestones on a path less travelled, a testament to a journey that transformed a curious boy into the mastermind behind a cybersecurity empire.
What to know? At 29, Trishneet stands tall as the force behind TAC Security, a company poised to dominate the world of vulnerability management. But it all started with a 10-year-old Trishneet, captivated by a study that projected India’s annual need for 77,000 ethical hackers. That spark of interest soon became a blazing passion, leading him to establish TAC Security at just 19, with a humble ₹75,000 from his father.
“It’s not about the destination but the journey,” Trishneet muses. And oh, what a journey it’s been! From authoring his debut book, “Hacking Era”, at 19, to securing a Fortune 500 client within TAC’s first year. The accolades kept pouring in, including backing from tech bigwigs and even a day named in his honour in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Yet, amid all the success, Trishneet’s grounding force remains the values instilled by his parents. Every query about the potential misuse of his cybersecurity skills brings him back to the ethical foundation they laid for him.
For Trishneet, the ride from a school dropout to helming a global cybersecurity venture has been nothing short of phenomenal. As he puts it, “Meeting new people, solving cybersecurity challenges, and expanding globally – it’s been an incredible journey.”
