Pitt Cyber Announces Affiliate Practice Scholar Martin Lindner
Pittsburgh – Pitt Cyber announced Martin Lindner as an Affiliate Practice Scholar today.
Affiliate Practice Scholars from across disciplines and industries join Pitt Cyber’s Affiliate Scholars, faculty from across the University of Pittsburgh, to collaborate and be a source of practical experience and expertise for research, experiential learning, and discussion. Lindner joins practice scholars Lt. Col. Diana Bishop, Michael Comber, James Kitchen, and Leona Mitchell and over 40 affiliate scholars from across the University of Pittsburgh.
Lindner is a managing principal consultant at SecureWorks and has over 30 years of technical experience. He is also adjunct faculty at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College. Lindner was previously a principal engineer at Carnegie Mellon’s Software Engineering Institute and has been selected as a Federal 100 winner by Federal Computer Week magazine. Lindner received his bachelor of science in computer science from the University of Pittsburgh.
“I’m pleased to be joining Pitt Cyber as an affiliate practice scholar,” said Lindner. “It’s critical that the big questions in cybersecurity and technology policy are looked at from across disciplines and not just considered something that technology will ‘solve.’ The Institute is doing just that and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
“I am honored to have Marty joining us as an affiliate practice scholar,” said Pitt Cyber’s Founding Director David Hickton. “His breadth of leadership and practical experience at the national and international levels will serve Pitt Cyber well as we tackle critical cyber questions.”
