Federal 100 winner: Martin Lindner

Martin Lindner
Senior member of the technical staff
Software Engineering Institute

Lindner was a leader in establishing the Defense Department’s Defense Industrial Base Collaborative Information Sharing Environment in fall 2008.

The Software Engineering Institute’s U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team and DOD's Cyber Crime Center created the environment with the goal of securing critical programs and technology by protecting controlled unclassified information on unclassified defense industrial base networks, which include private contractors.

"Marty has the Midas touch for bridging disparate views in complex technical discussions,” said Steve Shirley, executive director of the Cyber Crime Center. “He is all about achieving common solutions, not ownership. If we move toward playing team ball to confront the cyber threats we face — and we must — it will owe a lot to Marty and those like him."
