Path Through Math
Growing up, Javier knew he wanted to work with mathematics, but he wasn’t sure how. He started his career as a mathematician and learned computer research and security as an analyst for the Department of Defense. As cyber security blossomed, so did Javier’s skill set, and he eventually found his way to Area 1 Security.
