Time Magazine published an article this month reporting why the 2020 presidential campaigns are still vulnerable to cyber attacks, including a mention of recent Global Cyber Alliance research on the state of email security of the early Democratic presidential candidates.

“In March, the DNC moved up a briefing for campaign staffs about email security after an analysis from security advocacy group Global Cyber Alliance reported just four of the 14 declared major candidates had secured email systems.”

In keeping with our mantra – Do Something. Measure It. – GCA is committed to promoting and developing solutions to improve our global cyber posture. Protecting the integrity of the election process is critical. Stay tuned for more news from GCA in the coming months as we continue to raise the bar on security and roll-out new solutions to help our global community.

The Global Cyber Alliance conducted an analysis last week showing that most of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidates have not taken the necessary steps to secure their email systems. The analysis also reported that only four of the then-14 Democratic candidates’ websites were using a security protocol to ensure emails sent from a campaign address were actually from the campaign. Once CNN reported the story, three more candidates took action to implement DMARC!

Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) is a solution that verifies if sent emails are from the website they claim to be from. “There’s lots of things you can do to help protect email,” Phil Reitinger, president and CEO of Global Cyber Alliance, told CNN. “Use of DMARC is really table stakes for whether you’re serious about email security.” GCA has developed a DMARC tool that is free and helps organizations get started with setting up DMARC to better protect their email systems.
