"Time management has been very instrumental in my career success. So if you need one hour of time to dedicate to a study, it is better to break down in 15-minutes time slots, as finding one hour for yourself might be tough," he says.

  • How a CISO can balance work and learning;
  • Role of a leader in getting the best out of the team;
  • Upcoming technologies that excite him.
