Cyrus Martin, Rule4’s Technical Editor, brings nearly a decade of experience as a writer, editor, content creator, and organizer to the den. Cyrus believes clear communication is crucial to the success of any organization in our ever-modernizing world, and he has demonstrated that skill at multiple purpose-driven organizations, including Colorado State University and the Colorado Technology Association. 

Cyrus helps ensure that every Rule4 client deliverable meets our rigorous quality standards and is optimized to make an impact. He loves the challenge of making cybersecurity concepts accessible for everyone, not just technical professionals and board-rooms. To that end, he uses his keen eye for detail to distill complex, nuanced technical information into concise, digestible written content and graphics.

Cyrus is also passionate about waste reduction, renewable energy, and smart-grid technologies, all of which he believes will be paramount in securing a sustainable future for humanity and all life on Earth.

Beyond the desk, Cyrus enjoys backpacking, hiking, skiing, dancing to live music, and hanging with his two-year-old Great Pyrenees, Kosmo.
