Meet Daniel

Daniel Greene is a Partner and Incident Response Team Lead at Octillo. He has been on the frontline of hundreds of cybersecurity incidents, including headline-making attacks, data breaches involving millions of affected individuals and compromises across industries and of businesses of every size, from small and medium-sized businesses to publicly held companies. 

He guides clients through each stage of an incident – from detection to eradication, response to recovery, and crisis communications to compliance with legal obligations and defense of regulatory investigations. 

Dan has shepherded clients through breaches in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, financial services, government contracting, and cannabis, as well as in software, global retail, professional services, and more.

  • Ransomware 
  • Business email compromises & wire fraud
  • Rogue employees
  • Inadvertent disclosures
  • Phishing and social engineering
  • Card-stuffing, DDOS, and bot attacks
  • Domain-jacking and DMCA issues
  • Government and regulatory investigations

He is also a Certified Information Privacy Professional, United States (CIPP/US) and Certified Information Privacy Professional, Europe (CIPP/E) as recognized by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

Seasoned Cannabis Counsel on Security, Privacy, & Compliance

Dan also leverages his experience to counsel some of the largest entities and fastest-growing companies in the cannabis industry in the development of enterprise-wide data security and privacy compliance programs, including incident response planning, tabletop exercises, data security and privacy procedures, and third-party vendor management.

Whether counseling multi-state operators, training individual dispensary staff, or building out the compliance program for cannabis software and service providers, Greene keeps clients up to date with the fast-moving legislative landscape in cannabis and future-looking practices.
