When you look closely at Rishi Joshi’s background, you can see that he has worked primarily in the area of computers for quite some time. That may be why he feels very secure in the field of cybersecurity because he sees it as a growth industry. With all new technologies going forward, there is always a potential for hacking, which makes the cybersecurity field extremely important, now and for the future. For example, as the “Internet of Things” expands, it will bring with it many new opportunities for cybersecurity innovators, and he hopes to be at the forefront of that.
While Rishi Joshi has studied extensively in the areas of supercomputers and their attributes for quite a few years, he landed on the field if cybersecurity because he found it the most interesting. He has worked hard to become very highly skilled in many areas of cybersecurity, especially as it applies to application software development and infrastructure technologies, but also as it relates to the internet, e-learning, and gaming technologies.
In order to excel in the supercomputing field, one must have studied in Computer Science. Computer Science is the focused study of computers and computational systems in order to apply them to everyday life circumstances. Unlike electrical or computer engineers, computer scientists work primarily with software and software systems not necessarily hardware and installation. This includes, but is not limited to, computer software theory, design, development, and application. When Rishi Joshi was preparing to go into the SuperComputing field, he knew that a foundation of these concepts was going to provide well for him in the future.
Rishi Joshi has used his skills that he developed in the process of studying Computer Science to establish a career in supercomputing. To explain what supercomputing is, one needs to start with an understanding of what a supercomputer is. A supercomputer is a computer that performs near the highest operational rate for computers according to current record logs. Supercomputers have commonly been used for scientific as well as engineering applications that process very large databases or do a great amount of mathematical computation (often at the same time). Rishi Joshi’s career in Supercomputing involves him setting up the software for these supercomputers. The company Rishi Joshi works for uses his processing to better improve cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is the combination of technologies, processes and practices that are specially designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or even just general unauthorized access.
