Cybersecurity expert Michael Daniel draws from his former post on the National Security Council to help organizations combat the biggest security threats of the 21st century—and to prepare them for major changes in the future of cybersecurity regulation.

In an age of rising cyber threats and rapidly shifting regulatory requirements for organizations, Daniel’s experience as a policy insider leading the government’s response to the most notable cyber incidents of our time is more needed than ever. As cybersecurity advisor to President Barack Obama, Daniel led the nation’s cybersecurity strategy and policy efforts from 2012 to 2016.

Widely recognized as one of the world’s top cybersecurity experts, Daniel specializes in managing cyber risk to critical infrastructure systems, such as financial services assets, electronic medical records and industrial control systems. As president and CEO of the nonprofit Cyber Threat Alliance, he leads a team of cybersecurity giants such as Cisco, Checkpoint, Fortinet, McAfee, Palo Alto Networks, and Symantec to improve information sharing about cybercrime and other threats. Daniel is also Co-Chair of the World Economic Forum Global Future Council on Cybersecurity for 2023-24.

With proven strategies for identifying and alleviating cyber threats—from business email compromise to ransomware to cracked encryption through quantum computing—Daniel unveils key insights for safeguarding assets in an era of precarious digital disruption and connectivity. He also shares crucial information on major changes to governmental regulatory requirements—something all large enterprises will have to prepare for in the near future.

As attacks increase in sophistication and policymakers respond with updated rules and regulations, Daniel’s authoritative outlook on the global security landscape and applicable action plans help business leaders prepare for the next generation of cybersecurity.
