Writing a book titled ‘Unofficial guide to ethical hacking’ at the age of 15 is a far cry from playing football at that tender age. And yet, that’s exactly what Fadia did, and the rest is history when it comes to this world-renowned Indian ethical hacker.

Having won many awards including ones from both Microsoft and Cisco, Vivek is a force to reckon with in the field of computer security-his oeuvre spread across embedded systems security, e-governance, wireless security and computer forensics.
If you wanna know how it feels like to be 20 years old and world-renowned, ask Trishneet Arora. The dude is actually against hacking and helps companies and industries to protect their security systems.
