About the Author

DENNIS C. BREWER—who became interested in electronics at an early age, having been influenced by his older brothers, Ed, Alfred, and Paul, and encouraged by his sister Margaret—earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan. He received further training in the military, first as a member of the U.S. Navy Reserve (which he joined in high school, and in which he ultimately attained the rank of Chief Interior Communication Electrician), then from the Army R.O.T.C. program during college, and finally from the Michigan Army National Guard, which he entered as a 2nd Lieutenant Combat Engineer after graduating from the Army Engineer Officer Basic Course at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia.

A certified network engineer with almost 25 years of experience working with computers and networks, Brewer’s expertise in the field ranges from hands-on building and repairing of computers all the way up to setting policy and charting the course for technology objectives. Now an IT consultant, Brewer juggles a roster of clients that include educational institutions, various business enterprises, and a Washington D.C.–based consulting firm. In addition, he has authored several technology articles, and has written four other books including Wiring Your Digital Home for Dummies and Security Controls for Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 IT Compliance.

Brewer and his wife Penny, who live in Laurium—a little town in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, close to Lake Superior—enjoy camping in nearby Michigan State Parks and spending time with their three resident cats, Resa, Biddy, and KC.
