Principal Consultant

Probal Choudhuri is the Principal Consultant and Founder-CEO of Coral eSecure. Probal started Coral in December 2003, after spending 10 years in the industry, which included training in Information Security, IT Service Management and Business Continuity to 1000+ professionals.

Probal has a hands-on experience in advising 125+ clients, in multiple industry sectors, in multiple International locations. 

He believes in making compliance easy for customers, and is an exponent of Keep it Simple and Stupid (KISS) approach for anything that he does.

He has created project tools, methods, and approaches that ensures customers get an ROI on invested subjects. He ensures ROI by creating a structure for an organisation where each role has visibility of their risks, controls, documentation, transactions and access.

Each of Coral assignments starts with determining and declaration of business objectives. Each of the assignments ends with show casing how risks to those objectives have been reduced or business opportunities, optimised.

Probal leads from the front for each of the Coral engagement. The trainer in him sees an organisation as a collection of students playing different role, who need to be directed to align themselves to demonstrate compliance – without losing focus on business objectives.

Probal is a CISSP, CISA, CISM, and posses certifications in Cyber Security, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, HIPAA, ISO 22301, ISO 20000, ISO 31000, and ISO 9001. He considers his training and certifications as baseline, but considers the experience of consulting multiple standards as key to client project management and consulting delivery.

Besides work, he enjoys reading books, cycling every day, and running on weekends, with hope that one day he will be able to compete in a Marathon.

He enjoys attending short courses on online portals – which he considers as a game-changer for anyone wanting to learn ‘anything’.
