Nikita Shinde

Assistant Manager, Risk Advisory - Deloitte India

We are the women in cyber. The few protecting the many. The underrepresented, who over influence. The half of the world, who see the problems differently, who solve them uniquely. We are the women in cyber safeguarding society. Protecting us all. We need more like us. We need more like you.

Meet Nikita Shinde, an Assistant Manager in our Cyber practice, who works in the Security Operations Center (SOC) and manages/monitors real-time events, critical incidents troubleshooting, and security analysis.

Her passion for cybersecurity comes from her childhood as she saw her father promote a culture of “security first” in his role at a nodal office in India for cybercrime.

Nikita believes that a career in cybersecurity is exciting because every day offers a new learning opportunity. It’s a place where she feels she makes an impact that matters by working on real-time network and system integrations, and delivering real-time security solutions, as well as predicting attacks and protecting organizations in advance.

Advising women in this field, Nikita says, “If you are passionate about making a difference in society, and if you are a tech-savvy person, then cybersecurity is an excellent field to pursue. It will provide you with immense knowledge of some of the latest technologies, help you discover innovative solutions, and provide an experience of a lifetime.”
