Threatcare Salutes Our Veterans: Marcus Carey
On Veterans Day this year, Threatcare would like to dedicate this post to our very special Founder and CEO, Marcus J. Carey.
Marcus enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1993 and started his career there in cryptography. After almost 9 years in the Navy, he went on to graduate with a Master’s Degree in Network Security from Capitol Technology University.
Now a renowned influencer in the cybersecurity industry, Marcus has spent his more than 20-year career working in penetration testing, incident response, and digital forensics with federal agencies such as NSA, DC3, DIA, and DARPA. He has been a regular speaker at security conferences around the country, including having been featured as a keynote speaker at many large events.
Within his long list of notable accomplishments, Marcus was the first military service member on the NSA’s global network engineering team. He also created HoneyDocs, a type of document designed to let people know if someone has been snooping around their files—definitely a hacker at heart! But arguably his most notable accomplishment is creating and leading Threatcare in securing the world with Breach and Attack Simulations, an innovation gaining popularity in cybersecurity.
In the community, Marcus was named as Veteran Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 by Bunker Labs and continues to give back with mentorships and hackathons. His latest project, Tribe of Hackers, aims to excite young professionals about the cybersecurity industry and let others learn about the best hackers in the world. All proceeds from Tribe of Hackers will go towards a variety of nonprofit organizations—Bunker Labs, Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Rainforest Partnership, and Start-Up! Kid’s Club.
The Threatcare door is always open to anyone and everyone who seeks mentorship and guidance. Marcus believes that helping other first is the key to success, and his passion as a veteran founder gives us the same drive to make the world a better place every day.
From the Threatcare team, we are proud to honor all veterans of our country, but we especially appreciate the one close to our hearts, Marcus Carey.
I appreciate the Veteran’s Day sentiment.
You don’t have to be in the military to serve each other.
My hope is that we all serve and be a blessing to each other every day.#VeteransDay
