(February 26, 2020) – DefenseStorm, a leading cloud-based cybersecurity and cybercompliance management provider to regional and community banks and credit unions, announced today several changes to its Executive leadership, which reflect a strategic approach to long-term growth and succession planning.
Harold Brewer, CEO and co-founder of DefenseStorm, has announced plans to retire effective March 31 after nearly 6 years with the company.

“I am proud of the dedication and enthusiasm of DefenseStorm’s leadership talent, which is clearly reflected in both Steve and Jack,” said Brewer. “We have been very intentional in the timing of these transitions, and I am confident DefenseStorm is entering its best phase yet. Steve is a strong and dynamic leader who knows our business inside and out. He has been instrumental in driving DefenseStorm’s growth, and because of this, he is the ideal person to lead DefenseStorm into its next chapter of expansion and innovation.”
