David Martin — CEO & Chief Investigator
David is a former officer in the security services. He has a Master's degree in information security and assurance; a BA in civil engineering; and a BA in security management. David has previously worked as a private investigator in Florida and is currently a fully licensed private investigator in Massachusetts. David has conducted training seminars around the world concerning physical and cybersecurity, including being invited to lecture on cybersecurity operations at several EU expert member state meetings due to his unique experience and skill set.
In 1991, David formed his first private investigation agency in Miami, Florida. The agency concerned itself primarily with executive protection and worked with the Justice Department and other federal agencies, tackling fraud, kidnap, and cellular cloning investigations. The agency also worked with prominent Miami law firms, which led to the formation of ProTekta Worldwide Security Services. ProTekta operated across the Americas from 1996 to 2002, employing more than 5,000 staff, and protecting assets in excess of 3 billion USD.
The combination of physical and network security that was developed at ProTekta was the first security monitoring platform that was rolled out to protect the physical assets of major Telecom providers in both urban and remote locations. The transition into cybersecurity and the development of the integrated relationship between physical and cybersecurity as well as investigations began in 1997—when David formed Global CC after the sale of ProTekta. Global CC has since continued to provide services for a select group of clients to the present day.
David has become a leader in security operations management at the top level by applying a proven holistic approach to security concepts regarding business and governmental environments. His responsibilities include positions as Chief Security Officer responsible for IT infrastructure, IT security, physical security, safety, environmental policy, quality, and cost analysis, reliability, engineering, purchasing materials, planning, and inventory management of secured networks. David's experience in preventive technical procedures and public safety schemes—including Crisis and Continuity planning in multiple industries—across private, public, and government sectors has received acclamation.
David is a multilingual professional with extensive experience in service delivery and a track record of success focusing on vision and strategy which is based on 30 years of experience in the field. He is a professional with excellent working knowledge of risk management and complex investigations. His repertoire of skills include, but are not limited to, techniques for the assurance of a full security life cycle in various financial and cultural environments tempered in practical experiences in USA, Peru, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Belgium, UK, Slovakia, Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic, and Lebanon, among others.
