PhyberTech: A multi-faceted tech firm founded by tech prodigy Pratik KC
By: PhyberTech, LLC
Pratik fell in love with tech at an early age and started his first tech business when he was in high school. The business was called Phyber Security and offered computer security services such as malware removal, general computer troubleshooting, website security and even remote support. From that point, cyber security became an obsession for Pratik. He went on to educate himself on what is known as "white hat hacking". This is someone who finds vulnerabilities through methods such as penetration testing but instead of using it for malicious purposes like a black hat hacker, they report the vulnerability. At around age 17, Pratik found several vulnerabilities in different domains/sub-
Although Pratik was attending The University of Connecticut for Management Information Systems, he dropped out after a year to pursue his entrepreneurial ventures. He believes that due to the nature of the tech industry, everything that you could possibly learn in a formal school environment can be self-taught through the plethora of free resources online. Everything Pratik has learned in the tech industry has been self-taught and through his own motivation which is impressive to say the least.
He urges everyone to get themselves involved in tech as it is here to stay. He believes that a great way someone can get involved nowadays is through programming and believes that everyone should learn a programming language in this day and age. There is always a demand for programmers globally and you don't need a degree to learn the ins and outs and become one. There are plenty of online resources where you can learn how to program for free such as sites like Codeacademy or you can even watch videos on YouTube that contain full length courses for beginners. Pratik believes that coding is empowering as it not only helps you understand the technical aspects in computing but it also teaches you how to think. It can lead to many opportunities in a variety of industries and is a great skill set to have under your belt.
Currently Pratik has been focusing on PhyberTech as it has been his dream business since he was younger. His plans are to have PhyberTech be a conglomerate of all the tech businesses he has ever had interest in and include multiple subsidiaries such as Phyber Security. He has also started implementing a data analytics subsidiary company called "phyberlytics"
It is safe to say, Pratik will be a known name in the tech industry and it's clear that he will not stop until he leaves a legacy behind.
