Naavi as an Information Assurance Consultant
Naavi was introduced to the web as a columnist around 1997 and started his web related activities while in service with RKSWAMY/BBDO as an E Commerce Consultant and worked on development of websites to various clients. Subsequently with the release of the draft E Commerce Act 1998, Naavi turned into a Cyber Law Critique and Educationist.
With the release of the book “Cyber Law for Every Netizen in India” in 1999 he became an author.
Organizing the first set of suggestions to the Government on ITA 2000 and passing it onto the Government along with a persistent effort to start a Private Sector CERT, Naavi entered the domain of Netizen Activism.
Early in 2000, Naavi commenced his drive for “Cyber Law Compliance” in industries and pioneered the concept of “Techno Legal Information Security”.
By proposing services such as Lookalikes.in, CEAC.in etc he also fulfilled his role as an entrepreneur in the IT enabled services domain.
With the emerging challenges posed by laws on the information security domain, Naavi pioneered the concept of ITA 2008 compliance audit and also became a leading HIPAA consultant in India. With the stringent prescriptions of RBI on information security in Banks through the GGWG (G Gopalakrishna Working Group) recommendations, Naavi also pioneered the concept of GGWG compliance audits and has changed the perception of Cyber Laws in the industry.
In the recent years Naavi has pioneered a “Three dimensional approach to Information Security” and pioneered concepts such as the “Theory of Information Security Motivation”.
With such a rich background of different facets of operations in business, education and consultancy, in the year 2012, Naavi has redefined himself into an “Information Assurance Consultant” with an integrated approach to Information Security which is inclusive of the three dimensions namely “Technology”, “Cyber Law” and “Behavioural Science”.
Naavi’s innovative approach “Total Information Assurance” for “Modular Implementation” to Information Assurance is likely to contribute a new stream of thought to the domain of Information Assurance Practice. This has also made him the first “Total Information Assurance Consultant” in India.
