Global Cyber Alliance announces appointments to its Executive team

The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA), an international nonprofit dedicated to eradicating cyber risk, announced the appointment of two new executives to the team: Leslie Daigle, joining as Global Technical Officer; and Michael Tanji, joining as Global Marketing Officer and Chief of Staff.

In her new role, Leslie will leverage her extensive experience in cybersecurity in both the corporate and nonprofit spheres to further GCA’s development and deployment of global solutions that contribute to eradicating cyber risk.

Prior to joining GCA, Leslie served as Chief Internet Technology Officer at the Internet Society, where among other duties, she led a team whose successes included the World IPv6 Day and World IPv6 Launch, which changed the course of IPv6 deployment globally. For five years she served as the Chair of the Internet Architecture Board.

Leslie Daigle said, “GCA’s commitment to global action, through partnerships and tool development, demonstrates the much-needed leadership to address the issue. I’m incredibly excited to join the team.”

In his new role, Michael will manage strategic and operational efforts across all GCA solutions and geographies to drive their deployment and distribution and expand the GCA global footprint to make a greater impact. His proven record of success will help bring GCA solutions to new users and further a healthy Internet ecosystem. 

Prior to this, Michael had been associated with startups as CEO and CISO, including as co-founder of Carbon Black. He is a sought-after cybersecurity expert, published author, and frequent interview subject on security and intelligence issues. 

“I’ve been involved in various aspects of security for more than 20 years, and if I’ve learned one lesson it is to focus on efforts that scale. The opportunity to work with such skilled and seasoned practitioners, and to have an impact on a global scale, is a distinct privilege,” said Michael Tanji.

“Leslie Daigle and Michael Tanji are respected leaders in the cybersecurity field and are a great fit for the GCA team,” said Philip Reitinger, President and CEO of GCA. “Their considerable ability to deliver strategic and operational success is essential as GCA continues to expand its efforts. We look forward to the new challenges we will tackle with their support.”
