Nischit Vaidya – President & Chief Executive Officer

Nischit brings a love of sports, music, and cars to Argotis; which has nothing to do with Cybersecurity... doh! He's been working in the IT and Computer Security world since way before the word "cyber" became cool (1997).  He started his career fixing computers and eventually moved into risk management and Cybersecurity and started Argotis, Inc. in 2013. He obtained his B.Sc from UMUC in Information Assurance and his M.Sc from Capitol College in Information Assurance. He currently teaches Cybersecurity courses as an adjunct professor at UMUC.  He's also been an adjunct professor at Capitol Technology University, and the University of California Irvine. What else is important? Oh yeah, he LOVES the Washington Capitals; as evidenced by the profile pic.  He also loves the Washington Nationals and "loves" the Washington Redskins. If you're into Ford's Nischit is the CEO for you.  He loves his 2015 Ford Mustang and 2019 Ranger.  You can also find him rocking out to heavy metal or playing rock god with his guitar.  Nischit has a wide-open management style so, feel free to connect with him and send him a message! He'll be happy to discuss the progress of his favorite teams,  your favorite teams, the state of music in the current era, or anything else; including work-related issues.
