Jason Kinder

  • Mentor

Jason Kinder has over 20+ years of experience in the IT and InfoSec industry working in the private sector as a network administrator, network engineer, and then moving to manage a distributed IT group before making the jump over to InfoSec.  The jump over to InfoSec has put him in a position to manage InfoSec Operations for a multi-billion dollar defense contractor battling some of today's shared adversaries.

Through the course of his career his has gained the MCSE and CNE certs back in the day and worked hard to achieve the CISSP certification and more recently his GCIH & GMON.  Backed by a breadth of technical skill and knowledge, it also takes some keen business sense and acumen to properly navigate today's corporate environment.  While working in IT, Jason earned a Bachelor's of Science Degree from Wright State University in Dayton, OH in 2001 followed by an MBA with a concentration in Management, Change and Innovation also at Wright State University in 2009.  The technical and business skills he has amassed over his career are key to being successful and properly understanding today's security landscape and how it impacts the business.

Jason is very excited about the opportunity to Mentor SEC504 as a way to give back to the community, broaden people's minds, and train the InfoSec staff of tomorrow.  The challenge is here and now with adversaries evolving and regularly knocking on our doors.  Jason will help students be better prepared to identify and deal with these challenges on a regular basis.
