Raj Patel

Raj has worked in the Security industry for over 15 years. He has worked as a security professional in the retail, legal and financial areas and so has broad industry experience of security and risk.

He has participated in judging for SC Magazine, is Diversity Champion for the Women in Security special interest group, attends various industry events and regularly contributes on Twitter (@RickyRaj) and LinkedIn. He is CISM, CISA and CISSP certified and is always willing to share his thoughts on security issues. Raj is passionate about the Security industry and keen to generate more interest in the field as a career choice and to promote end user security awareness.

Raj would describe himself as a ‘glass half full’ kind of person. He says: “I like to challenge myself and like to learn about new things whether it be security or anything else”. Raj has most recently joined the BCS as a Fellow member with which he has set himself personal goals to be even more active about security and risk.

Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“I would have to agree with Thom Langford that ‘analogies are one of the most powerful methods of putting across concepts and ideas in ways that make sense to people’. Security is a hard sell at all levels and The Analogies Project helps by providing examples of why security is important by relating it to everyday things. I am happy to be part of such a worthy cause, look forward to being a contributor and learning from others.”
