Monday, August 29, 2022 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — SensCy has announced the addition of Raj Patel to its cybersecurity team. Patel joins the cybersecurity start-up in the role of Chief Growth Officer. The hiring announcement was made by Rick Snyder, CEO of SensCy.
“Raj Patel brings a wealth of cybersecurity expertise and accomplishments that will further strengthen the depth of service we offer our clients and affinity partners,” said Snyder. “Throughout his career, Raj has demonstrated his leadership in the evolution of cyber practices and solutions to manage the evolving cyber landscape, focusing on people, process, and technology.”
Patel will be responsible for new client acquisition, affinity marketing efforts, and will work closely with the SensCy team to ensure business goals are met. For the last 20 years, he was a partner and practice leader of Plante Moran’s cybersecurity consulting practice. Patel joined the firm in 2002 to build the practice from the ground up. Under his leadership, the team grew to nearly 100 professionals, serving large and small clients in both the private and public sector.
“I am thrilled to be part of the SensCy team,” says Patel. “I look forward to providing best in class cybersecurity guidance to SensCy’s current and future clients. The best part is we can help businesses manage cybersecurity risks and help protect the business they worked hard to build and sustain.”
Crain’s Detroit Business recognized him as a “40 Under 40” recipient in 2009 and an “American Dreamers” award winner in 2007 for his professional accomplishments. Patel is often quoted in national and regional publications and recently was featured in a cover story for CIO magazine discussing the importance of cybersecurity in the remote work environment. His articles have been published in various publications including Corporate Board Member, Chief Executive, CFO, and on MarketWatch. He also wrote cyber blogs for Crain’s Detroit Business.
In today’s digital world, data is a valuable asset and hackers are realizing that small and medium-sized organizations (SMOs) are significantly less protected than large companies with many resources. SensCy’s high-tech, high-touch model ensures SMOs have the proper education, sound policy, best practices, and a clear understanding of their cyberhealth (including regular reports and alerts to real-time threats) to reduce the risk of a catastrophic cyber event and the ability to respond and recover if one occurs.
