Martin Holzke

Senior IT, Security and Training Generalist @ SoftQualM

Martin Holzke’s programming career started while studying Physics in the late 1980’s when he took on an offer to learn to program at Philips instead of the more common student jobs. Once graduated, he started his own business developing applications and systems as a freelance IT Consultant which he does to this day. His 25+ years’ journey continues to take him through a vast array of technologies, methodologies and languages like OOP, UML, C++, .NET, ADF, PHP, Zend, Oracle and SQL to name just a few.

In due course, Martin’s programming expertise has always been followed by training others, whether junior team members and colleagues or on behalf of commercial training providers. Just as his other skills, his training portfolio is evolving all the time into new subjects and delivery formats. His services are highly appreciated around the globe.

Aside from programming and training, Martin has in recent years been hugely involved in IT and Information Security, compliance and auditing and since 2013 he also is Technical Assessor for Information Security to the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS); needless to say he is now also teaching subjects like CISSP, Comptia Security+ and ISO27001.
