Vinayak Srimal CISSP

Senior Vice President, Kotak Mahindra Bank

With over 20 years of experience in information and communication systems, I am a seasoned leader in information security operations, secure engineering and process improvement. 

As the Senior Vice President at Kotak Mahindra Bank, one of India's leading financial institutions, I oversee the digital transformation and security of the bank, with focus on integrating emerging technologies and systems, security architecture reviews, incident reviews, and consolidation and process automation efforts .

As a Navy veteran, I bring a unique perspective and skillset to the banking sector. In various dynamic roles, both at sea and ashore, I successfully implemented enterprise solutions, policies, and standards for enhancing the compliance, efficiency, and integrity of the Navy's ICT backbone, which pivots Naval operations across continents.

My military background serves to strengthen my discipline, diligence, perseverance and integrity. I also bring a people-centric approach to work, knowing fully well that when all fails, strong teams win!
