ASIS was founded in 1955 and is a global community of security partners focused on the role of protecting the vital assets of people, property, and information. Members of ASIS represent every industry across the world, regardless of their role or title, or the organization’s sector or size. With an emphasis on a global and diverse community, ASIS offers a range of educational programs, publications, and events to help its members thrive in the professional environment and grow into industry leaders and innovators.  

The ASIS 2023 Conference will feature presentations that explore the region’s most pressing security challenges, led by academics, practitioners, policymakers, and civil society actors. This year’s theme is “Managing Security Risks in VUCAD (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous and Digital) Africa." Discussions will also focus on women in security, leadership, military and law enforcement, and the next generation of technology. Dr. Martin will be one of the featured speakers at this event. 

Dr. Martin is a professor of practice at Capitol who specializes in critical infrastructure, systems security, and identity, credentialling, and access management (ICAM). He is actively involved in the community and maintains professional relationships with a diverse mix of organizations. He is also a former member of the ASIS International Standards & Guidelines Commission. Recently, he was designated by the U.S. Department of State as a Fulbright Specialist, an award that provides opportunities for researchers to advance the study of critical infrastructure and other important areas of technology education through project-based exchanges at host institutions across the globe. It is awarded to highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals who can share their expertise with other institutions and strengthen their linkages, develop skills, gain experience abroad, and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their home institutions. Additionally, Dr. Martin has been a featured speaker at other ASIS events throughout his career, including the 2022 Annual Africa Security Conference where he presented on the topics of leadership and government vs. private security partnerships. 

Capitol Technology University and its professors have a long history of collaborating with West African institutions to address the global cyber workforce and skills shortages seen across many sectors. A recent educational partnership was established between the university and NexGen Higher Institute of Technology (NHIT) of Yaoundé, Cameroon, whose president, Dr. Divine Sufor Anye, is a Capitol alumnus. This partnership upholds a mutual commitment to support the growth and infrastructure of the global community through the educational development of cyber and tech professionals. 

Through the efforts of ASIS and many organizations and institutions in promoting international collaboration, opportunities in equitable technology education are made possible.
