Hello World!!

Hello friends!!!!!!

Welcome to! When I entered in the corporate world of Information Security , I came across so many situation when during a conversation on a project with my colleagues I realize the terminology they are using I am not at all aware about it. Those are really bad situations as you want to make an impact also but you have no idea what they are discussing about. So, you stay there numb and try to act as you know everything and you agree whatever they say. After that you Google it also but after spending hours, you will not come across anything. Now, when I knew something about our lovely ISMS, I decided to start this blog to support the fresher’s and professionals like us who at times missed out few thing due to work load or pressure or use of some big corporate jargon’s.

I am not an expert in this field; I will be sharing my experiences and my understanding of ISMS with you all. So, if you find something which can be done in a more effective and efficient way then what I mentioned on this blog then feels free to comment on that post. I want this process to be a two way learning process. Everyone is most welcome to post your queries and I will try to answer your queries ASAP.

At last I will like to thanks bunch of people and I will mention their names as I want to tell them that I love them all and without them I would have not be where I am today – Atin Bhaiya (Alias Kaka for been a great guide), Achlesha Bhabhi , Vidit Shrivastava (My biggest critic ), Bharti Rastogi, Bhumika Kaushal(My Motivator) , Naveen (Alias Chahca), Vivek Sharma(Alias Kali),  Anant Rai (Alias Zihadi – without his Zihad I would have not learned so much), Aadesh Bhaiya Ajay Nehra , Varsha, Seema, Prakhar, Dheeraj (Alias Nawab- Don’t wanna go in details about the details behind this nickname ) , Rashmi Singh; my extended family,  all my friends, my batch mates  (from BHS, SBCET, IIIT-A) and colleagues (from Tryst, MG, MIT, NII and Mahindra SSG).

I also wanna thanks to the entire Mahindra SSG team for their support . Especially to Shailesh Sir for providing me great opportunities to learn and guiding me for better understanding of ISMS. Farzana Mam for being a great Team Lead and the entire MISS team. I will not miss the opportunity to thanks KK Sir , Prashant Koranne Sir, Jaideep Sir and Daksha Mam for being a great teachers of Information Security for me. Purvesh Gada Sir for helping me and motivating me in developing this blog.

Lastly I want to thanks the three most important people of my life, who is always there to support me in all situations and always believe on me – Mom, Dad and Bhai (Ankur Kumar Shrivastava – My biggest Strength), Love you all.
