From Silicon Valley roots in enterprise software development and product marketing to disaster response to the shadows of the U.S. Intelligence Community, Dan Trimble has developed an uncommon base of expertise and a reputation for destroying silos and building consensus. His background is diverse, yet fuses in ways that help leaders crystalize a holistic understanding of cyber issues across their organization's complex ecosystem of industries and stakeholders.
Dan is an award-winning cyber, intelligence, and international affairs leader; a technologist; social scientist; and storyteller. His work for the U.S. Government has encompassed service as a senior advisor; deputy director of a premier cyber intelligence center at U.S. Cyber Command; leadership of a wide range of critical infrastructure and cyber threats teams for multiple agencies; and policy and operational response work for natural and manmade disasters. He has helped shape national strategy and policy and served at think tank fellowships focused on innovative public/private partnership models for cyber risk assessment. In an earlier life, he helped manage numerous Fortune 500 and startup tech product lines.
A sixth generation Californian, Dan is also a published photographer and explorer, and loves to cook and write. More than anything else, he is Andrew and Alexander's dad and Heather's husband. He is a student of international business, public administration, public policy, and national security and has studied at Golden Gate University, the Naval War College, the National Defense University, and has held a number of fellowships.
