There is no single approach that can describe the innovation engine in the mind of Siddharth Vidhani.

After obtaining a Bachelor of Engineering degree at the University of Pune in 2017, he has worked in the IT sectors of Indian national defence, finance, product development, Software engineering & design, forensics and as an Ethical hacker.

Since 2019, as one of the Founding Partners and CTO of Cybernetico, Siddharth Vidhani has been implementing innovations in the digitalisation and cybersecurity fields of the maritime sector. 

When the freedom of travel, entry into ports and visits to ships, was curtailed by the pandemic, by developing IT engines that could perform the tasks of inventorying and Vulnerability Assessments remotely, without requiring physically attendance on board ships, allowed the clients to achieve compliance with IMO’s 2021 Cyber Security Regulations seamlessly. 

But there is a long way to go, many milestones to achieve, and a lot of activities and processes that the world believes to be normal today, to be disrupted, to ultimately achieve the final goal of leaving a legacy behind to be remembered by.
