Journey before 2012
Our founder, Saket's romance with hacking began in school, during a run up to one of his exams. He had just discovered the art of hacking into secured computer systems and his chances of clearing the chemistry paper were looking bleak, so he hacked into the school computer and stole the question paper. He eventually ended up confessing to the teacher, but the thrill of hacking lingered on. Thankfully, he realized that his skills could be utilized in more constructive endeavors, and so at the age of 21, he decided to set up Lucideus - A cyber security company along with Rahul Tyagi & Vidit Baxi.
