Cybersecurity Specialist Presents at Women in AFCEA Luncheon

Seth Martinez, technical subject matter expert and government lead for the Application Security Team, was the chapter guest speaker for the August Women in AFCEA event and did an exceptional job speaking on Security +, Cyber Security and IT. Seth Martinez is originally from Weslaco, Texas. After graduating from high school, he first attended South Texas Community College, McAllen, Texas, and then the University of Texas Pan-American, obtaining a bachelor's in English in 2006. After receiving his degree, he entered into military service for nearly a decade, serving first at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, for seven years with the Third Psychological Operations Battalion, then finishing out his service at Fort Knox, Kentucky, with the Third Expeditionary Sustainment Command. In the military he served in roles such as AV technician, VTC technician, satellite communications technician, IMO, first and second tier technical support, concierge technician, and help desk supervisor. After leaving the military service, he felt compelled to stay in the Louisville/Fort Knox area. He enrolled in Sullivan University, with the intention of switching his academic focus from the arts to the sciences, obtaining two master's degrees; one in cybersecurity and the other in information technology management. Due to the nature of his work in the military, he has been working in cybersecurity-related fields for the better part of 15 years, with the last two years working specifically as a cybersecurity specialist. Since then he has been the training coordinator for the U.S. Army Cybersecurity Division, researching compatibility of training with the mission and roles within the Cybersecurity Division, and he has moved to become an all-around technical subject matter expert and government lead for the Application Security Team.
