Nova Daly Named to Advisory Board for Center on Sanctions and Illicit Finance, Drawing on Key National Security Experience

March 12, 2015

Nova J. Daly, senior public policy advisor in Wiley Rein’s prominent International Trade Practice, was recently named to the Board of Advisors to the Center on Sanctions and Illicit Finance (CSIF)—a role that will draw on his extensive experience on key national security matters.

The center focuses on the use of financial and economic tools to combat terrorism and protect and promote national and global security. It was launched in November 2014 by the nonprofit Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD)—a leading think tank on the use of financial and economic measures in national security.

The non-partisan CSIF advisory board provides strategic counsel and helps shape FDD research on the convergence of economic and financial power and national security for the global policy community and private sector. Members of the prestigious board include former senior government officials, ambassadors, and leading scholars from think tanks and academia.

Mr. Daly, an experienced international investment and trade policy professional, has held senior leadership positions at the U.S. Departments of the Treasury and Commerce, the White House, and the U.S. Senate. At Treasury, he served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) from 2006 to 2009.
