Mr. Sourya Biswas
Achiever's Success Story
Mr. Sourya Biswas, through his positive attitude and rich experience, stands as an inspiration to many
Mr. Sourya Biswas describes himself in the following words, “Dream big like a strategist, dig deep like an analyst and communicate like a journalist.” And what makes it interesting is that he has worked as all three. He believes that this gives him a unique mixture of skills that allows him to effectively communicate technical security concepts to business stakeholders, and at the same time guide technical stakeholders to appreciate the business implications of their work.
He is a Technical Director at NCC Group, a UK-headquartered security consulting firm with a global presence. In 2021, he was given the CEO Choice Award and featured in his company’s annual report. Before this, he had worked in a major e-commerce startup where, as “the CISO’s first hire”, he was instrumental in building out its security program from scratch. Prior to his startup role, he worked at a Big 4 firm straight out of business school.
Mr. Biswas advises Fortune 500 clients in securing their assets against cybercriminals. According to him, cybersecurity is an extremely dynamic field where changing technologies and attack strategies require him to be in a state of perpetual learning. Mr. Biswas, over his 18 years of experience working in risk management and cybersecurity, has gathered an impressive list of credentials. These include certifications like the CISSP, CCSP, CISA, CISM, CRISC and CGEIT. He was recently recognized as an IEEE Senior Member, a rarefied group that only 10% of the 400,000 odd IEEE members are part of. He has several speaking and publishing credits about securing IT assets, both in traditional on-prem environments as well as in the cloud.
Mr. Biswas earned his Bachelor’s in Engineering degree from IIIT-Kolkata and MBA, on full scholarship, from the University of Notre Dame. He lives in Chicago with his wife and two children.
