DTCC Upgrades Email Security

BITS is a division of the Financial Services Roundtable, and the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), both Washington, D.C.-based organizations representing the banking, securities, investment and insurance communities. BITS is urging its members to use the TLS protocol for sending email traffic wherever possible and especially between financial institutions.


“Implementing email security protocols, such as TLS, will help to improve the confidentiality and integrity of information exchange among financial institutions and their customers and clients,” said Bill Nelson, president of the FS-ISAC. “We applaud DTCC for being in the forefront of this movement.”
