Babil G. Sarwar
Vice President of Research in SecureLogix Corporation, USA
I have earned two PhDs (separately defended thesis and pursued research at two universities) and two Master's degrees (separately pursued and received awards) in the fields of Electrical Engineering, Telecommunications, and Networked Systems Design from the University of New South Wales (Australia) and ISAE-SUPAERO under the University of Toulouse (France) respectively.
I am a senior member of IEEE, the world's largest organization for technical and technology professionals, and am currently working for SecureLogix Corporation as the Vice President of Research and Chief Scientist, closely overseeing both research, technology, and business development activities, as well as managing and leading the research team.
Prior to SecureLogix, I worked as the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Vysk Communications Inc. in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I jointly led the overall technology development and directly contributed to the design and implementation of Vysk's flagship QS1 product—an end-to-end ultra-secure communication hardware solution that extends traditional mobile devices, e.g., iPhones—as well as contributed to team-management and business responsibilities, such as leading the privacy and security team, pitching technical content to support sales and marketing, helping with fundraising activities, etc.
Before joining Vysk, I spent a tenure of about eight years at National ICT Australia (NICTA; currently Data61/CSIRO)—one of Australia's largest ARC Research Centers of Excellence—on several research and development projects involving the state of the art in networked systems development, protocol design, and first-hand implementations of these systems with strong privacy and security in focus.
I am officially in love with engineering and technology, and I thoroughly enjoy developing deep technological solutions from scratch. In particular, the fields of computer networks, protocol and systems design, application, operating system and network security, reverse-engineering, malware analysis, and practical cryptography predominantly occupy areas of my skill and interest. I believe I am strongly motivated, sharp, trustworthy, and usually put my 100% into solving problems that I find interesting, and I don't easily give up.
