Respected Cybersecurity Leader Tammy Moskites Joins Venafi as Chief Information Security Officer

Former Time Warner Cable and Home Depot Executive Will Help CISOs Fortify Strategies to Defend Against New Vulnerabilities and Attacks on Keys and Certificates

Venafi, the leading provider of Next-Generation Trust Protection, today announced during RSA Conference 2014 the executive appointment of Tammy Moskites as its Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). Moskites brings 25 years of cybersecurity experience and leadership, having led security teams at Time Warner Cable and The Home Depot. Moskites will help CISOs fortify their strategies to defend against increasingly complex and damaging cyberattacks against the trust established by cryptographic keys and digital certificates.

Keys and certificates establish online trust for payments and transactions, data storage and access, mobile devices and cloud applications in all Global 2000 organizations. However, cybercriminals have learned to take advantage of the dependence and blind trust that organizations place in keys and certificates. Recent advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks such as The Mask, for instance, demonstrate that cybercriminals are exploiting the vulnerabilities created from unsecured keys and certificates. Once compromised, the attackers have free reign on the target’s networks and remain unprotected for long periods of time. They have become trusted.

“Tammy brings tremendous knowledge and experience to Venafi and our customers,” said Jeff Hudson, Venafi CEO. “The safety, security, and privacy of ecommerce, the cloud, and mobile devices and users all depend on securing the trust established by keys and certificates. Tammy’s professional experience, leadership and recognized domain expertise as the CISO of Global 250 companies will help fellow CISOs defend their organizations. The gap in securing keys and certificates leaves the door open for cybercriminals. Tammy’s leadership and experience will help other CISOs close these open doors.”
