Presenter Bio(s)
Daniel Eliot joined the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) in 2018 as director of small business programs. Daniel currently serves as the Director of Education and Strategic Initiatives. Daniel runs the CyberSecure My Business™ program, which is a comprehensive national program led by NCSA to help businesses of all sizes learn to be safer and more secure online. Prior to his tenure at NCSA, he worked both within and in an advisory capacity to small businesses. Most recently, Daniel worked at the Delaware Small Business Development Center (SBDC) as the manager of technology business development. While there, he developed specialty programs to help small business start and scale. One such program was DatAssured, Delaware’s small business cybersecurity program based off the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework. This was a state-wide program designed to help Delaware’s small businesses identify threats; develop cybersecurity readiness plans and processes to protect their data; detect breaches; locate partners, vendors and resources; and respond to and recover from successful cyberattacks. Because of his efforts, the Delaware SBDC became one of the national leaders in small business cybersecurity education and outreach. 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. Daniel also created and managed SBIResource, a program designed to help innovation-based companies apply to, and win, Small Business Innovation Research funding from 11 federal agencies. Daniel helped small start-ups access over $4.8 million in non-dilutive capital through this program. Daniel holds a B.S. in education and a M.S. in adult education from Indiana University, Bloomington.
