Dr Danny Steed

Head of Strategy, ReSolve Cyber

Visiting Fellow 1 Apr 2019 - 26 Apr 2019


After completing his PhD in 2012 Danny Steed (@TheSteed86) was appointed Lecturer in Strategy and Defence at the University of Exeter, where he helped to build the nascent Strategy and Security Institute. His academic specialisms lie in strategic theory, cyber security and warfare, intelligence practices, future technology, and the history of war broadly.

He avidly continues his own scholarship with numerous publications to his name, and continues to lecture at several universities, focusing on cyber security currently. Danny was recently contracted to write his second book, The Politics and Technology of Cyberspace, with Taylor & Francis.

Danny left the University of Exeter to join the Cabinet Office in operational cyber security, where he served for two years in both Operations and Incident Management. His specialism during this time was facilitating confidential information sharing between government and industry as the Project Lead for the CiSP (Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership) initiative. As part of the UK Government Danny has briefed numerous international delegations on these practices, as well as a high number of industry partners within the UK. Danny left public service to join ReSolve Cyber as its Head of Strategy in 2017.
