Dan Clemens

Daniel Clemens is an accomplished cyber security expert, entrepreneur and business leader who has dedicated his 20-year career to analyzing threats and solving complex crimes involving technology and the internet.

This work has been global, taking him from DC to Dubai to Venezuela, using technology to help pre-eminent law enforcement agencies and Fortune 500 companies analyze risks, follow clues and catch hackers, terrorists, human traffickers and cyber criminals.

Daniel moved to Birmingham from Silicon Valley in 2000 – before the .com bust — to start something new in a promising growth region.

He founded two companies: Packet Ninjas, a consulting company that offered expertise in offensive and defensive security disciplines, and “cyber intelligence” long before it was even coined a phrase; and, ShadowDragon, a company formed in 2015 to sell the cyber investigation tools that Packet Ninjas had created.

As a security researcher, Daniel has briefed the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and members of Congress, and has been interviewed by CNBC, Reuters, the Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal.

Topic: Using Cyber investigation technology to disrupt human trafficking through DeliverFund, and how we ALL should use our tech skills “for good.”
