As the Covid-19 pandemic rages on and India remains in lockdown, most corporate enterprises have employees working from home. However, working remotely and having increased screen presence can also result in lowered security and higher risk of cyberattacks. 

In this episode of TechCircle Dialogues, Saket Modi, co-founder of cybersecurity firm Lucideus Technologies, talks about India’s digital landscape, cyber risks looming over enterprises and how his company is helping customers keep the cyber world safer.

Modi founded Lucideus in 2012 with Vidit Baxi and Rahul Tyagi. The Palo Alto, California headquartered company, which has extensive operations in New Delhi, provides cyber risk assessment services to private companies and governments via its SAFE platform.

In December, it raised $7 million in a funding round led by MS&AD Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of Japanese insurance company MS&AD Insurance Group Holdings. It also counts former Cisco executive chairman John Chambers’ venture capital firm JC2 Ventures among its investors.

Last month, the firm appointed John N Stewart, who has three decades of experience in the industry, to its board of directors.
