Sridhar Iyengar is a prolific author with a keen interest in the evolving narratives of technology and its regulatory frameworks. His works reflect a deep engagement with the major technological shifts and policy developments that are shaping our world. Notably, his writing on the European Union's landmark AI Act delves into the ethical dimensions of artificial intelligence, setting a precedent with guidelines that propose to regulate AI usage responsibly.

His insights also contribute to discussions on national security and technology, as evident in his update on the AI Taskforce that is poised to advice the UK government.

With a critical eye on the ramifications of technology in the workplace, Iyengar broaches the contentious issue of remote employee surveillance, alerting us to the risks associated with the increasing electronic monitoring of home workers. In a similar vein, he discusses the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic on cybersecurity, attributing the heightened risk of cybercrime to the accelerated adoption of digital tools.

Celebrating milestones in the tech industry, Iyengar shares the success of Zoho Corporation as it reaches an impressive user base, while also probing the strategic management of data in business to unlock maximum value in a data-driven era.
