Cyber Threat Alliance President & CEO speaks on the Ransomware Task Force

Tech & Sec Weekly


We speak with Michael Daniel, President & CEO, Cyber Threat Alliance, a nonprofit that coordinates information sharing between leading cybersecurity companies, including Cisco, McAfee, Palo Alto Networks, Symantec, Verizon and more.

Prior to joining the CTA in February 2017, Michael served from June 2012 to January 2017 as Special Assistant to President Obama and Cybersecurity Coordinator on the National Security Council Staff. In this role, Michael led the development of national cybersecurity strategy and policy, and ensured that the US government effectively partnered with the private sector, non-governmental organizations, and other nations.

Michael provides the outcomes from the Institute for Security and Technology (IST) Ransomware Task Force (RTF). Conducted in partnership with a broad coalition of experts in industry, government, law enforcement, civil society, and international organizations, the RTF released a comprehensive framework to combat ransomware.

We also hear Michael’s outlook for the industry and the CTA in 2022, as well as his thoughts on Australia’s Ransomware Plan.

We last spoke to Michael in Sydney in 2017 – here is that interview https://australiancybersecuritymagaziā€¦
