A field service engineer, who had been deployed to combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan, was able to win reinstatement of her revoked security clearance within 72 hours of submitting a response to the government, thanks to Brian Kaveney and Tom Weaver. The engineer, who had held a clearance for 11 years, had been shocked to learn about the revocation because neither she nor her company had received notice. In less than six weeks, our security clearance team was able to gather dozens of sworn statements from personnel all over the world and prepare a 20 page detailed response. Our package convinced the government of the 31-year-old engineer’s integrity and suitability to handle classified information. The government quickly restored the clearance in August 2011 without requiring a hearing or any further documentation.
