As a senior cybersecurity consultant for 1898 & Co., Brett’s work bridges the gap between cybersecurity and operational technology in order to defend critical infrastructure assets and keep clients safe. Working closely with clients, he helps identify and mitigate risk.
A specialist in penetration testing, he investigates client systems to find vulnerabilities and develop exploitation techniques, creating an attack kill chain that an adversary would use to make sure a client's systems can withstand any attack. If a client has a potential breach, Brett and his team respond and help them manage it and provide meaningful road maps on how to improve their security posture.
Brett joined 1898 & Co. recently from the U.S. Navy, where he spent 10 years working in combat engineering and cybersecurity, including positions supporting U.S. Cyber Command and the Navy critical infrastructure commands.
