Daniel Shoemaker

Center for Cyber Security and Intelligence Studies, University of Detroit, Mercy

Dr. Daniel P Shoemaker is Principal Investigator and Senior Research Scientist at UDM’s Center for Cyber Security and Intelligence Studies. This Center includes the Computer Information Systems-Information Assurance Department, as well as the NSA Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education. The Center has just completed a two-year Department of Defense Contract to develop Software Assurance Curriculum and Courseware. Dan is a full time Professor at University of Detroit Mercy with 25 of those years as Department Chair. As the Co-Chair for the DHS National Workforce Training and Education Initiative for Software and Supply Chain Assurance, he is one of the three authors of the Software Assurance Common Body of Knowledge (CBK).

But while Dan spends a lot of time in DC, he is a Michigan man at heart, beginning with his education at the University of Michigan and the outreach opportunities he shepherds within the State of Michigan through his leadership of the International Cyber-Security Education Coalition. This Coalition covers a five state region with research partners as far away as the United Kingdom. Dan also spends his free time authoring some of the leading textbooks in the field of Cyber Security. Look for his newest edition to hit the press, this spring Cyber Security : The Essential Body of Knowledge, based on the DHS National Cyber Security Division’s EBOK. His first book, Information Assurance for the Enterprise, is McGraw-Hill’s primary textbook in that field and is in classrooms internationally. His next book Cybersecurity: Engineering a More Secure Information Technology Organization, which is also published by Cengage, will be out next February. He does all of this with the help and support of his wife, Tamara.
