She started with the learnings and experiences she grasped during her life journey which helped her. She started the talk by showing some pictures of her life back in university. She emphasised on focusing on positivity and confidence in life. She also stated that there are efforts, desires and we all are striving to achieve our dreams but one should always go with the flow. She also talked about the implicit trust that exists between a student and the faculty which helps each of us to grow and take risks and explore ourselves.
She was also a member of Technical Club at the University and had also attended their conferences in Delhi. She also attended the India Today Conclave in Delhi where she understood the importance of the power of conversations and discussions. It was here where she learned about the realm of ideas. She talked about how JUIT Literary Club helped her to become a voracious leader and be a content creator. She also talked about how she learned teamwork and learning from other people. She also expressed how our strengths and weaknesses can be complemented by the group of people we are surrounding ourselves with & how simple routine life experiences end up teaching us much more.
Katyayani shared her experience at off campus internships after 3rd year and how her interview went with Microsoft and how she got selected there.
She talked about how wonderful the human mind is and the wonders it can do. She was the only intern selected in cloud computing. She spent her last semester in Florida where she has also worked as a research assistant in cloud computing. Next, she expressed the importance of schools, university in our life and referred to it as a 'foundation'.
After coming back from Florida, she started her preparation for civil services. She cleared the exam in her 5th try and also talked about how she almost cracked the exam in her previous tries but couldn't, not because she was not capable but because she lacked confidence and explained the importance of right attitude towards failure.
She joined the State Bank of India in 2015. She started her training in Missouri which filled her essence of peace, accomplishment and relief with a feeling of responsibility. She is the founder of "Viraam". She has initiated a series of gender sessions. She has regularly spoken on gender-related issues and has previously written on the topic of Menstrual Equity.

Dr. Hemant Sood congratulated our alum on her achievements and wished her success.
Interaction round began with the questions revolving majorly around her work life. She explained all the major aspects of her job which includes 'public dealing' income tax grievances, judicial issues pertaining to the department. When questioned about overcoming low points during her preparation, she took simple measures like cleaning her room, buying new plants and got back on schedule by doing a cost benefit analysis between giving up and still striving for the goal. She called it a 'sine curve' and not an 'exponential curve' as there are always ups and downs in life.
Professor Medury also joined the meet he congratulated her on all her accomplishments and wished her well for her future. She was asked questions about the jobs she did during the preparation and managing time throughout. She gave both equal amounts of time and was able to manage everything. She was asked about any quotes she has always believed in. She answered with two quotes "No dream too Big" and "Argue for your limitations and sure enough they are yours".
Next, she talked about her initiative "Viraam" which basically started to begin a conversation about "violence" which women are afraid to speak about. She wanted to start a conversation on all forms of latent and subliminal gender violence. It is all about educating women on what emotional abuse is and how talking and counselling can really help.
The forever present gender data gap is found in every field. Prof. Sunil Kuma Khah also expressed his concern regarding this topic. He believes the poor mentality of people is the root cause of these differences and inquired if our alum has done anything to change that. Katyayani believes that the change cannot be revolutionary but generational. She feels various government policies have helped in changing mindsets and her initiative "Viraam" is a step towards that direction. Heading towards the end Dr Sudhir Kumar Sir also congratulated her.
The session ended with a Vote of thanks by Achyut, the Secretary of Alumni Cell.

He started off by recalling his time from Accenture where he was part of the team that build a software to keep and manage the scheduling of ships delivering the products which took almost 2 and a half years. This software was then deployed for a company in Singapore, ranked 2nd in the world for ocean cargo industry.
After gaining this invaluable experience and knowledge of seeing and building a product from scratch, he went to work for Athenahealth. He explains that, it was merely a switch from a service-based industry to a product-based industry.
He further explains the difference between Indian and American healthcare companies. He worked on a product there, which essentially helped get doctors get paid faster, by checking the cause and minimizing the rejection of claims by the patients. Soon, he moved to their clinical department, where he worked on the software that the doctors used and further emphasized and explained the digitalization of healthcare in the USA.
He then stressed on the importance of learning new languages like node JS and java. Then he talked about the rise of data science and its functions as well as it’s different aspects and uses in health care.

Mr. Samyak Handa, who is a graduate from 2015 batch, then asked him a question regarding the same, that it is indeed very difficult to find good internships which provide hands on experience to students, further they only do so if the students are exceptional in nature. So what should be done in regards to this. Which he tackled by saying that, students must look for startups that would help them and integrate them in main projects as well as be able to pay them simultaneously.
Several questions followed, and he answered them using the wisdom his experience and also with brief yet detailed explanations.

The JUIT Alumni Cell organized a talk with Mr. Saurabh Sud, an Information Security professional, currently working as Manager- Cyber Security at KPMG, Germany.

With a very warm welcome by the Vice-Chancellor Prof. (Dr.) Rajendra Kumar Sharma & Faculty Incharge of Alumni Cell Dr. Saurabh Bansal the event commenced. Everyone congratulated our alumnus Mr Saurabh for his accomplishments.
Mr. Saurabh had prepared a presentation on "Cyber security" which proved to be very helpful as it cleared almost all our doubts regarding the topic.
He started up with how hackers and cybercriminals use the internet as a tool to spread malware and carry out cyber-attacks and in what ways this pandemic has led to a rapid increase in cybercrimes. Many multinational companies have been attacked which led to a breach of trust between the customers and the management.
His slides covered important topics like:
Viruses and their capability to corrupt files and steal private information like credit card details of the user and send them back to the hacker.
The next topic that came up was “Identity Theft” which is a type of cybersecurity threat that involves the stealing of personal information of the victims from social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram, etc. and using that info to build a picture of the victims. He warned us that if sufficient sensitive information is gathered it could allow the cybercriminal to pretend to be you in some way. In some cases, hackers may steal the bank details of the victims and use it for their personal use.
Next, he explained ransomware which unlike all other types of cyber-attacks, notifies the victim about the exploit, and it also gives instructions on how to recover from it.
He explained the severity of cyber-attacks by describing an event where a hospital was attacked by some hackers. It proved to be fatal as one person lost his life.
After the concluding slide, many questions were asked by students regarding cyber security like why advertisements of products similar to what we looked for online on different apps and Google pop up as stories on my Instagram account and if he ever faced a situation where he had to act very quickly to mitigate a threat.
The VC sir actively took part in the interaction and asked questions like which programming languages must be added to the course which can turn out to be more beneficial to students.
The event was stimulating and enjoyable and simultaneously profitable as sir shared his views and good numbers of new ideas, information and insights came up.
