Dean Phillips, executive director, Noname Security

API security is the new frontier for government entities trying to respond to adversaries taking advantage of the new, broadened attack surface. Yet, agencies struggle to keep pace. Dean Phillips of Noname Security offers insight on how to address the API security challenge.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Phillips discusses:

  • The fundamental API security challenge;
  • Why government agencies struggle to respond;
  • How to approach the new vulnerabilities and broadened attack surface.

Upon retirement from government service, Phillips started as executive director, Noname Security, responsible for creating and running a public sector LLC to provide API security to government agencies. Prior to this move, he served 23 years in the FBI. Most recently, he was assistant director, IT Infrastructure Division, responsible for the FBI's worldwide IT infrastructure, including networks, end user devices, data centers, credentialing and access management, operating systems, communications services, mobile technologies, customer experience, and the enterprise operations center.
