The CISO Power List, 2012
Title: CISO & Head of Technology Governance
When Pankaj Agrawal joined Aircel as its first CISO four years ago, the organization was a small, regional telecom operator poised for the big league. Plans were afoot to take Aircel national, but the obstacles were formidable. Agrawal was tasked with helping facilitate this massive transformation by overhauling IT and security at Aircel. Aircel took the leap two and a half years ago, and has achieved spectacular growth since then.
