Email and Credential Security: The Heart of Cybersecurity

Phil Reitinger of Global Cyber Alliance Says DMARC Can Play a Critical Role
Phil Reitinger, CEO, Global Cyber Alliance

Email, which is too easily spoofed, phished or taken over, remains a leading cybersecurity risk. But finally, after years of pushing, the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance standard, or DMARC, is helping to shore up email security, says Phil Reitinger, CEO of the Global Cyber Alliance.

In an interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Reitinger also discusses:

  • DNS filtering and steps the alliance is taking to enhance DNS security;
  • How IoT is fueling email insecurity; and
  • Why DMARC can only go so far.

Before joining the Global Cyber Alliance, a non-profit organization focused on eradicating systemic cybersecurity risks, Reitinger served as deputy undersecretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate at the Department of Homeland Security. He also served as the first executive director of the Department of Defense's Cyber Crime Center, and as deputy chief of the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section at the Department of Justice. And he formerly served in senior cybersecurity roles at VisionSpear LLC, Sony and Microsoft.
