Mark Winstead is Systems Security Chief Engineer within The MITRE Corporation’s Systems Engineering (SE) Innovation Center. He had over twenty-five years’ STEM experience before joining MITRE in 2014, including stints as a crypto-mathematician, software engineer, systems architect, and systems engineer as well as occasionally working systems security engineering (SSE). Past employers include defense contractors, an EPA contractor, a Facebook-like start-up, a semi-conductor manufacturer of security protocol acceleration solutions, and a network performance management solutions company. At MITRE, Mark has worked/works with various sponsors, helping programs with security engineering and teaming on integrating security into systems engineering for acquisitions and program offices. Recently, he has worked on advancing the practice, working on Department of Defense SSE standardization and co-authoring NIST SP 800-160 V1R1 Engineering Trustworthy Secure Systems, a publication intended to advance systems engineering in developing trustworthy systems for contested operational environments. He has also worked with MITRE internal training center on developing materials in SSE and has taught SSE tutorials at INCOSE IS and conferences. Soon in his spare time, he will be writing a book for systems engineer about their role in security. A graduate of the Virginia (PhD, Mathematics) and Florida State (BS), Mark resides in Colorado Springs, CO.
