Trishneet Arora is the name, now a day, being much talked on the internet. This name is being presented as a role model for Indian children by the modern parents of India. While Indian Youths prefer to call him “Mark Zuckerberg of India”. This sprightly brain is not only an Indian icon but a worldwide one.
Who is Trishneet Arora and how did he become so rich at a very young age?
Trishneet was born on November 2, 1993 in Ludhiyana of Punjab, India. His childhood was normal until his father bought a computer. He progressively got interested in the intelligent machine and started having intellect thereof.
His parents got angry with and friends laughed at him when Trishneet failed in the 8th class owing to lack of interest in schooling books. For this he spends all his time on operating computer and learns how to hack computers. His interest was so deep that he started reading international books written on hacking. Over years, he gained a strong grip over computer and earned adequate knowledge in this field.
By the age of 22, he had written 3 books which became popular among hackers namely Hacking TALK with Trishneet Arora, The Hacking Era and Hacking with Smart Phones. Those who read his books were shocked at his knowledge in this field at such a young age. Then, he decided to launch a firm to provide cyber security to his clients and save them from hackers.
23 year old Trishneet now heads TAC Security, a firm that works to provide cyber security to several giant companies and organisations in India. He gives security to Reliance, Amul, Punjab Police, and Gujarat Police etc. The names above are enough explain his ability in his field. Reliance alone is one of the richest and repudiated companies of India.
For his Success many students from IITs are dreaming to work under him as his firm earns crores under the leadership of this 23 year young brain. In fact he made TAC security into a multi-millionaire giant at the age of 21.
Arora, a first-generation tycoon, set up his own company – TAC Security Solutions – in 2012.
It offers training, consulting and IT security solutions, and his clients include MNCs as well as domestic organisations such as Reliance Industries, ICICI Bank, Ralson (India) Ltd, the police forces of Gujarat and Punjab, and the CBI.
He is registered by Microsoft Social Forum at third position after Ankit Fadia and Sunny Vaghela amongst India’s Top 10 Ethical Hackers.
A back-bencher in school, he failed in the class VIII examination and completed his class X and XII through open learning. He is also a speaker, author, investigator and cybercrime consultant.
“My father is a senior accounts officer in a private firm and my mother is a housewife. With no formal education in business, setting up my own business was a very challenging task. The passion to do something exclusive and the growing number of cases of IT security encouraged me to set up my own business in 2012,” he explained.
Arora said, “It was difficult to get the company registered with the Registrar of Companies as I had no idea about all the legal formalities. But I finally incorporated my own company. The most powerful weapon in any work, and since I had the passion to do something unique, I established myself as a prominent player in the field of IT security.”
“After fit in our own company, in a week’s time we achieved to get a client who asked us to do his web security. We charged him fees that were lower than the actual cost, as we believe in client satisfaction. Gradually we moved on and managed to get good clients.”
He says that while the huge companies capitalize money in safeguarding IT security, SMEs do not, due to the lack of awareness: “They fail to understand that they are secure only as long as there is no cyber-attack. Their data and network are vulnerable.”
His company, he adds, provides them with IT security through customised solutions.
Quoting a sample, he said, “A Punjab based vendor came to us and said that his buyer had sent payment for an order thrice, but he didn’t receive a single denomination. While working on the case, we found that somebody had hacked the exporter’s network, and the hacker had total control of communication between the two parties.” “There are numerous examples where SMEs come to us. In recent times we cracked a case where an industrialist had become a victim of credit card replicating,” said Arora.
Arora is also planning to open a training centre on ethical hacking in Dubai or the UK.
In addition being a successful entrepreneur, he is the world’s second youngest writer of books on ethical hacking.
He has written two books – The Hacking Era and Hacking Talk. The latter was recently released.
