Senior security consultant and Pacific Air Forces Information Assurance team leader
Pacific Air Forces Headquarters, Hickman Air Force Base, Hawaii
How the customer benefited: Brewer led a project to build and implement enterprisewide information assurance services for the Pacific Air Forces that ultimately lowered the cost of conducting information assurance assessments by 40 percent.What makes him a leader:
Brewer grew a security compliance project from a one-year consulting engagement to a four-year information assurance contract with a scope of work that included both guidance and support. He did so by using existing resources and providing a standardized approach to compliance status and metrics for a far-flung military command with 23 critical networks that stretch across 13 time zones.
In appreciation for his work with the service, Brewer received three Commander Coins from top-level Air Force officials to honor the information assurance guidance that he provided to the commands and the Air Force personnel he mentored. These coins are usually given only to military personnel.
The Air Force Audit Agency cited SecureInfo's information assurance project as the best of its kind in the Air Force. Brewer continues to drive additional business for SecureInfo throughout the Pacific Rim. For example, he identified seven noncompliant systems that resulted in additional revenue outside the scope of the original contract.
