Haathi Cloth: Hacking the World of Indian Weddings

Are you familiar with India?


If not… well… this really isn’t the podcast for you


Here are some things you may or may not be familiar with


There are over 31 Million Non Resident Indians or Persons of Indian Origin living outside of India across the world. Over 7 Million NRIs or PIOs live in the USA, the UK and the Canada.


The Indian wedding market is estimated at $50 billion making it the world’s second-largest, after the $70 billion US market and it is growing at an estimated rate of 20% year over year.


Some would say… the traditional clothing one wears to an Indian wedding, while spectacular… is not that comfortable.


The a Southeast Asian engineer from the Midwestern US met an Indian Entreprenuer from Austin Texas… it was time for a change.


This week on Insecurity, Matt Stephenson sits down with the founders of Haathi Cloth for a discussion about Kurtas and pyjamas. What in the world does this have to do with cybersecurity and technology? Have you ever been in a data center where the pressure is on and it’s hot… like… really hot? Now try going to an Indian wedding in the summer. This was a system ripe for a Blue Team style hack.
