Head of security at Ola (ANI Technologies), Mohd Shadab Siddiqui has extensive experience in e-commerce, payment gateways, mobile security, logistics products, and digital signing.

Key security initiatives
Siddiqui was instrumental in building complete infrastructure to protect all personally identifiable information (PII) and business critical data across all data stores at Ola. This made it possible for everyone to query on data without having access to any critical information about customers. All data was encrypted, and there was no impact on business as there were dashboards built on older data for business critical data. The team worked on open source and most of the code was written in-house.
