Phil Reitinger, president and CEO of the Global Cyber Alliance, spoke with SC Media Executive Editor Teri Robinson about DMARC’s benefits and its trajectory in both the private and public sectors.

Bob Gourley writes from RSA:

“Every year the RSA conference brings together members of the cybersecurity community for a week of presentations, discussions, tech demos and socials. Concurrent with the event there is always a flurry of press releases. Many are designed to highlight a company’s product or service. Many, like the announcement of the new Microsoft led coalition of tech firms, might be well intentioned but highlight something that will have zero impact. But there are always a few releases that are worth focusing on.

Which leads us to the Global Cyber Alliance. The Global Cyber Alliance is an international, cross-sector effort designed to confront, address, and prevent malicious cyber activity. It is led by an icon of the cybersecurity community, Phil Reitinger, and Phil is a guy known for focusing on action that can be measured (the motto of the alliance is “Do something. Measure it.” (Read full article here).
