Stepping up the ladder
When the Demonetization took place, suddenly India experienced a drastic shift towards digital payments and wallets. During the initial days, many people became the victim of online frauds, so Vaibhav decided to start the online campaign for cyber awareness and gradually he started giving public talks.
He started receiving invitations from top-notch schools and universities all across the globe, which includes Delhi Technological University, Lovely Professional University, Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Galgotias, and many more. In his second year of engineering, he got the opportunity to chair the Cyber Security Conference, where the chief guest was Dr. Gulshan Rai, then cyber Security Chief under Prime Minister’s Office.
In the year 2020, when cyber frauds were at their peak due to the sudden adoption of the online working environment, Vaibhav organized the second edition of the CIA Conference, which was an open conference for all. He managed to have US Homeland Security on board with them thus became the only cybersecurity venture of India to collaborate with them.
Deep Technology Knowledge
He has a couple of research papers published on Car Hacking & Cloud Security. Seeing his utmost interest and contribution in cyberspace he was awarded the budding researcher award by IEEE & Amity University in International Conference on Computation, automation & knowledge management, at Amity Dubai.

He was on the highest recommendation list of resource persons to the Comptroller Auditor General of India because of his exceptional research and knowledge into the domain.
