Federal 100: Brent Ingraham
Name: Brent Ingraham
Title: Unmanned Systems Technical Director for the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment Platform and Weapons Portfolio Management
Agency: Defense Department
The director of drones. When DOD halted procurement of off-the-shelf unmanned aircraft systems because of concerns about cybersecurity vulnerabilities, Ingraham established a cross-functional team of experts to review urgent and critical department needs while preventing loss of information. He developed databases and data management tools and integrated a rapid and secure process to review those needs, conduct risk assessments and determine mitigation steps. His efforts allowed DOD to consistently and efficiently evaluate cybersecurity risks, and in just six months, the ban was lifted thanks to Ingraham’s ingenuity and perseverance.
