The Future of Cybersecurity, With Rishi Joshi

November 25, 2017
Whereas some may consider the idea somewhat ironic, Rishi Joshi absolutely feels very secure in the future of the field of cybersecurity, if for no other reason than all new technology will almost certainly be connected, which means there will be a potential for hacking. That means innovation will always be ongoing and cybersecurity will always be essential. For example, the burgeoning "Internet of Things" that is happening right now will create great new opportunities for cybersecurity innovators, and he thinks of himself as exactly that. He hopes to be in a place to secure as much as possible.

As with everything else in his life, Rishi Joshi sees his tech career as one that helps people live a better life. There is nothing he loves more than that. In fact, it seems to be a primary motivation for virtually everything Rishi Joshi does. Even his hobby of powerlifting seems to come from a need to help people. His interest in the sport derives from his belief that lifting weights is an ideal way to increase and develop both a person’s strength and their mental prowess. Rishi doesn’t just lift weights for himself, he also loves coaching and training his friends.

Training Powerlifters: Rishi Joshi

Training any type of athlete is a feat, let alone athletes that have the goal to, simply put, develop as much all-out strength as they physically can, primarily through three main fundamental lifts: squat, bench press and deadlift. Rishi Joshi started training for his own health improvement and found so much fulfillment in the process, he expanded his efforts. He now works at both his own nutrition and powerlifting training as well as training others in order to help them achieve their own desired results.

But let’s back up, you may be asking what exactly is powerlifting? Powerlifting is a strength sport that is founded in set ups of three: three attempts at maximum weight on three major body lifts. The three lifts are the same ones that we spoke of earlier: squat, bench press, and deadlift. These three types of lifts reveal the strength of the individual. Powerlifting began as a sport called, "odd lifts." Odd lifts followed the same three-set up format as powerlifting but used a wider variety of events much like a strongman competition. In order to meet the desired goals for powerlifting, these competitors must also have great control over their nutrition. Rishi Joshi enjoys helping them to understand the science that explains the relationship of nutrients and other substances in food to the maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of the human body.
