Forcepoint’s Eric Trexler: Transparency to Help Gov’t Build Trust in Push for Cybersecurity

Eric Trexler

TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 12, 2019 — Eric Trexler, vice president of global governments and critical infrastructure at Forcepoint, has urged government agencies to ensure increased transparency with contractors as a key approach to establish trust in support of cybersecurity efforts, ExecutiveBiz reported March 3.

Trexler wrote in a Nextgov guest piece published March 1 that trust can be built around a risk-based cybersecurity posture that leverages “security trust ratings” and organizational risk scoring based on transparent data about security status, which he says contractors can utilize as a competitive advantage.

“Enhanced inspection, proper due diligence, and the right data can help protect trust—one of the most precious commodities any agency has,” Trexler added.
