With 15+ years’ experience in IT Management and Information Security, Dan recognized the risks that end users present to an organization while also seeing first-hand the value that comes in building a culture of security awareness. Dan's most recent role as IT Director and InfoSec Manager at Smarsh, a leading SaaS based compliance firm with 20,000+ clients worldwide primarily concentrated in the financial industry lead Dan to realize how valuable and important end user awareness is for firms of all sizes. "The large enterprise sized firms with logos we know all recognize the risks associated with social engineering, phishing and other common end-user security threats" says Dan, "as a result enterprise firms implement enterprise class security solutions including comprehensive awareness training programs. Securecast was built with the goal of providing the same enterprise class security training to organizations of all sizes that is easy to manage and easy on the budget."
As co-founder of Securecast, Dan is committed to helping all organizations create a culture of security which he believes is at the core of a secure organization. In addition to working with Securecast and Smarsh clients, Dan enjoys spending time with his 2 year old son River, new baby Stella and wife Sarah.
