Director of Education and Strategic Initiatives
Prior to his tenure at NCSA, he worked both within and in an advisory capacity to small businesses. Most recently, Daniel worked at the University of Delaware in their Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships as the manager of technology business development. While there, he developed specialty programs to help small businesses start and scale. One such effort was Delaware’s small business cybersecurity program–one of the first state-wide cybersecurity awareness programs in the country focused on the small business community. This program is designed to help Delaware’s small businesses identify threats; develop cybersecurity readiness plans and processes; detect breaches; and respond to and recover from successful cyberattacks. Because of his efforts, Delaware became one of the national leaders in small business cybersecurity education and outreach. In 2018, Daniel received a letter of commendation from Governor John Carney’s Cyber Security Advisory Council for his efforts addressing cybersecurity awareness and education across Delaware.
