A force for first responders. McEwen has a talent for bringing together both communities and complex technologies. Through IACP, he worked to integrate various identity, credential and access management frameworks in the public safety community -- an effort that Kshemendra Paul, program manager for the Information Sharing Environment, termed "hugely successful." And as chairman of FirstNet's Public Safety Advisory Committee, McEwen aligned work on the nationwide first responders' emergency communications radio network, which includes the next-generation 911 system and the Department of Homeland Security's efforts to enhance emergency communications.
