Senior Director, Payments & Cloud Advisory, Coalfire
Dan leads the Payments Advisory Practice at Coalfire, which serves clients across their lifecycle with PCI compliance, including strategy and architecture consulting, scoping and cloud migration support, all the way to remediation, readiness and program support. Dan also heads up Coalfire’s Product Guidance whitepaper practice. In 2018, Dan established the Cloud Advisory practice at Coalfire, which grew out of his work advising and assessing the major cloud service providers (AWS, Azure, Google, Salesforce, IBM and Oracle). Methodology developed in that work has been applied to multiple verticals and to extend security and privacy compliance understanding to leading-edge cloud technology (e.g., containers). Large financial firms have built private clouds with this guidance. Recent work has focused on coordinated advisory and assessment efforts, combining PCI with Privacy, HITRUST, SOC2, ISO, and FedRAMP. Dan came to Coalfire from a long career on Wall Street and in the telecom industry. In his 11 years at Goldman Sachs, he held lead technical positions in Trading Technology and Tech Risk, including Business Continuity. At AT&T, Dan was a principal SME at the worldwide Frame Relay NOC.
