This session examines the evolution of network cybersecurity to meet stringent U.S. government requirements of keeping 5G networks safe. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is a group of vendors working together, including Intel and Daniel Carroll, Field CTO for Cybersecurity at Dell. We’ll discuss the NCCoE goals, group structure, the notional architecture, security elements, schedule, and give a status update.


Daniel Carroll

Field CTO, US Federal, Dell Technologies

Dan Carroll leads the cybersecurity practice development for Dell Federal. He focuses on designing and implementing cybersecurity frameworks to help Federal customers meet their diverse cybersecurity missions.

He participates extensively with the NIST community to understand global cybersecurity challenges and help shape responses that can be leveraged by the community through common frameworks and reference architectures.

Prior to Dell Federal, Dan held the position of head contract negotiator for enterprise service agreements with the Fortune Global 500. His responsibilities included government and commercial organizations.

Dan was a lead architectural engineer for the Marine Corps Network Operations and Security Command both as a commercial contractor as well as a U.S. Marine. Dan was responsible for large portion of the deployed military application network architecture planning, design and deployment.

Chris speaks 5 languages, and his passion is to turn future technology dreams into commercial revenue products. Intel recruited Chris in 2008 as a Strategy Planner to define leadership video, graphics, audio and web telecom requirements for Atom-based 4G/5G smartphone platforms. In 2016, Chris moved to Intel’s Data Center Group to tackle edge computing and long-term network strategy planning. Chris championed Intel’s technical innovations such as Optane™ persistent memory and wafer-scale silicon photonics for 5G, AI, networking, telecom, visual cloud and network automation markets. For several decades, Chris pushed the cutting edge of wireless telecom and multimedia innovation, connecting semiconductor products with the technopolitics of standards in 3GPP, ETSI, MPEG, ITU, WebRTC, GSMA, GCF – even serving as secretary of the ECTEL TMS trade association (Task Group for Mobile Services, European Telecommunications and Professional Electronics Industry). These decades span over 12 years at Analog Devices evangelizing digital signal processors (based in Boston), and GSM chipsets (based in Munich) pioneering 3rd party software development in India. At Synopsys, Chris launched SystemC, evangelized SoC system level design tools and ran business development for the Asia-Pacific region. Chris owned Marketing for NemeriX, a fabless startup based in Switzerland, recognized for the world’s lowest power GPS chipset. At MIPS Technologies, Chris drove IP licensing for processor cores and third-party multimedia IP engines. Chris was accepted by MIT for early admissions, earned an engineering degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts with high highest honors and completed his junior year abroad at the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Upon graduation, Chris moved to Washington DC to work for Linkabit Corp, a boutique defense contractor just when the founders Viterbi & Jacobs had left to launch Qualcomm.
