Brent has a long history of helping companies with complex industrial environments understand where their cybersecurity risks are and what to do about them.

- At a time when there is an enormous shortage of cybersecurity talent, there are even fewer cybersecurity professionals who have experience securing industrial OT environments. Brent is one of the few across the world that not only has this experience but is able to turn it into tangible help for companies of all sizes.

- Brent is very knowledgable and technical, but is also easy to work with. He communicates well. He consistently demonstrates an ability to get technical with those on the front lines and is able to take complex scenarios and discuss them with executives in a manner that translates to business outcome.

- He truly cares about helping customers and guiding them to a decision that is best for them. His integrity and strong values show through every time he's working with a customer. He is legitimately interested in them, naturally curious, and cares about what happens to them after he leaves an engagement.
