Seth is a seasoned strategist on the program management and analytics team at GSX specializing in insider threat workforce programs. In his role, Seth engages extensively with clients, oversees complex projects, conducts in-depth research, translates data into actionable recommendations, ensures program compliance with industry and third-party standards, and leads various internal initiatives. He focuses on managing high-stakes certification programs for government agencies and private organizations while spearheading internal initiatives involving dynamic competency management. Two of his most notable projects include the Global Counter-Insider Threat Professional (GCITP) certification and the Certified Counter-Insider Threat Professional (CCITP) program.

Seth began his career with GSX in 2018 as a senior analyst supporting federal government workforce programs.

While supporting the CCMP program, Seth assisted candidates with the registration and testing processes, proctored exams, provided help desk support to certificants, guided individuals through the recertification process, and maintained the program’s candidate management database. Additionally, Seth gained experience in human intelligence support and government contracting through his roles as a human intelligence (HUMINT) specialist and all-source analyst. Each experience afforded Seth an in-depth understanding of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the various organizations within the DoD and their corresponding relationships, and the importance of credentialing in the federal sector.

Seth is a veteran of the U.S. Army. He served for over six years as an Army HUMINT collector. During his time in the military, he was deployed twice to Iraq for a total of 27 months and received the Bronze Star Medal for his heroic service and achievements in combat.
