Trivedi also played a role in establishing cybersecurity audit practices from the ground up at the asset management company.

Lalit Trivedi has been appointed by the Singapore-headquartered fintech firm FlexM as the head of information security (global). He was, until recently, head of IT and chief information security officer at asset management major ITI Mutual Fund.

In addition to information and cyber security, Trivedi, in his 23 years of experience as CTO and CISO, spearheaded digital transformation, quality management, design, delivery, and management of IT services, solutions architecture, BCP/DR, and AI/ML projects.

Trivedi, at ITI Mutual Fund, was responsible for uptime management, SOPs, budgeting, customer and marketing analytics, process automation, data replication and integration, and VAPT.

Trivedi, a certified information systems auditor (CISA) and recipient of numerous IT and security leadership awards, worked as Head-IT and CISO at DBS Chola Mandalam Asset Management and as CTO and CISO at AdvanceOne Uganda in the past.

Speaking on his decision to move, Trivedi said that he was looking for some global exposure in his field of expertise, specifically managing multi-country regulatory requirements, audits, and cybersecurity operations, including cloud workloads.

Reflecting on his experience at ITI Mutual Fund, Trivedi says that at the time of his joining, the company was essentially a startup. “I was responsible for setting up the complete IT infrastructure in addition to defining and implementing IT policies, risk assessment, and regulatory and compliance practices from scratch,” he says.

Trivedi also played a role in establishing cybersecurity audit practices from the ground up at the asset management company.

Including the US, Canada, and the Philippines, FlexM, which is registered in Singapore, also operates in six other countries. Trivedi finds his new role challenging but nonetheless interesting because of the opportunity to learn about regulatory and security requirements pertaining to multiple geographies.

“The scope is big, and so is the challenge, but I have an interest in learning something new and putting my past experiences to work,” Trivedi says.

“My priority is to set up cybersecurity and risk and compliance processes for all the verticals, starting from infrastructure, services, and the cloud, from scratch, based on multi-company, multi-vertical, and multi-country requirements,” Trivedi says.

He will continue to operate out of India’s BFSI capital, Mumbai.
