Starting as a trainee engineer, I have had the chance to be engaged in various roles over the past few decades with different organisations in India and UAE. In 1999, I started company operations at Bulwark as founder and group CEO. I have a dedicated focus in the information security domain and am in a strong position to cater to these demands with the support of the entire team at Bulwark.
