Secured Communications has announced internationally renowned cybersecurity expert Tom Patterson as its newest board member.
Tom Patterson is a trusted strategic advisor on cyber and critical infrastructure security issues to corporations, governments, and the international community. He has served as a senior security executive at Deloitte, IBM, and Unisys, where he worked with leadership teams to defend many of the world’s critical enterprises, protecting national borders, transacting trillions of dollars per day, delivering energy to millions, securing global air transit, and providing healthcare to entire populations.
