Amrita Alumnus (BTech, Bengaluru) Shruthi Kamath is a certified Ethical Hacker from the EC council and is a Security Analyst with Infosys for the last two and a half years.  Computer security, broadly encompassing internet and mobile, is a field that is predominantly male dominated.  Shruthi and a few other likeminded women are pushing the boundaries and trying to pave the way for more women who can hop on to this platform and narrow the gender divide. She recently shared her experience and achievements in the field, as well as thoughts on how involvement by women can help the Information Security (InfoSec) industry evolve.  Shruthi was fascinated by “ethical hacking” but never knew how to get started in this domain. At Infosys, security was part of her training and she had a chance to learn about InfoSec. Her mentor then introduced her to Null, the Open Security Community, where she began attending hands-on sessions and monthly meets.  “Info-sec is very exciting as there are new discoveries every other day so the learning never ends,” she says.
