In today’s wired world, people are bartering their personal information to experience innovation with an inherent understanding that the company entrusted will safeguard their data and protect user privacy. Unfortunately, the frequency and magnitude of security breaches highlight two important facts. The profound importance of data protection as a business priority and the dire shortage of cybersecurity and privacy professionals that is eroding consumers’ trust in the ability to protect their information. It was against this backdrop that Raj Raghavan laid the cornerstone of Credio, Inc., a advisory firm that helps clients create the best data protection strategies as well as train professionals in cybersecurity. “We have a cadre of industry experts who help our clients build trusted digital ecosystems. Our on-demand platform brings cybersecurity, privacy, and payments professionals to partner with clients who are trying to enhance their customer’s product journey with a simple digital experience,” explains Raghavan.

On this note, the company is addressing the supply side by motivating employees to bring forth passion, creativity, and willingness to take on challenges and by investing in peer-to-peer training and personal growth. On the demand side, Credio, Inc. works with a few large clients that enable them to fully comprehend their client’s culture, technologies, and roadmap to help them achieve their business objectives. The aim is to invest for long-term partnerships and not be swayed by just revenue generation.
Another unique factor that makes Credio, Inc. proud is their culture of social progressiveness with a 2:1 women to men employee ratio. “We will continue to promote women in our cybersecuity and privacy practice and hope that the trend will grow across the sector,” says Raghavan.
Given the GDPR regulation in EU that took effect in May 2018 and the new California privacy regulation coming into effect in the U.S. starting 2020, Credio, Inc. is expecting a spike within the privacy and security sector.
Going forward, Credio, Inc. will continue to build trust in today’s digital world. The plan is to grow their on-demand platform to help clients tap a depth of talent when and where they need it. The company understands that niche talent wants to be constantly challenged in an open crowdsourcing environment, so they can create virtual sounding boards while learning new technology, threats, and global regulations. “We hope to help our clients preserve customer trust at every touch point, be it a commerce transaction, a shared opinion, a health concern or simply answering a doorbell,” concludes Raghavan.
