About the Author:
Konrad Martin is the CEO of Tech Advisors (https://tech-adv.com), a firm he founded in 2002 with his twin brother, Kevin, who is the Chief Technology Officer at Tech Advisors. His older brother, John D. (JD) Martin, also works at Tech Advisors as the CFO.
Mr. Martin is a nationally recognized authority in the field of cybersecurity, and recently enjoyed a major role in the documentary Cyber Crime 2: The Dark Web Uncovered. The film, which opened in Hollywood with a red carpet and debuted on Amazon Prime’s streaming service (where it can still be viewed today), chronicles the growing plague of cybercrime that results in billions of dollars stolen or lost each year, destroying businesses and lives. Mr. Martin and nine other national cybersecurity experts were selected for the film, in which they explore the psychology and techniques of cybercrime and offer tips on how to avoid becoming a victim.
Under Mr. Martin’s leadership, Tech Advisors has gained recognition as a leading technology solutions provider for businesses both large and small. He has guided Tech Advisors onto the national stage through a variety of strategies: adding services, expanding beyond their original client base of CPAs into other industries, and offering cloud-based platform solutions for clients. His relationships with national cloud providers – including OS33, Coaxis, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) – enhance Tech Advisors’ strong position in the marketplace. Tech Advisors was also selected as a “Fast 50” company by the Boston Business Journal, honored as one of the 50 fastest-growing private businesses in the Boston market.
Mr. Martin is the author of two books on cybersecurity. The first, Hacked!, offers strategies for staying one step ahead of cybercriminals. The second, Empower Your I.T., is a comprehensive guide for the small business owner who seeks to find a professional, competent IT provider. Additionally, he contributed a chapter to the book Exposing the Hacker Playbook with other professionals, through his affiliation with Robin Robins, the IT industry’s most sought-after marketing consultant.
Additionally, Mr. Martin has authored articles on cybersecurity for a number of regional and national magazines. A former CPA, he serves as a trusted advisor to the Massachusetts Society of CPAs and wrote the WISP (Written Information Security Plan) for their organization and its thousands of members.
The Bangor, Maine, native enjoys an active “out of office” life as well. His non-IT hobbies include traveling, golfing, and athletic competitions. He was a nationally ranked swimmer, going back to his undergraduate days at the University of Maine. He likes hiking, triathlons and a number of other challenging outdoor activities.
