You may have seen the news yesterday from General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions that we have expanded our partnership with Bit9 + Carbon Black. We’re pretty excited about this news as it will allow our Network Defense and Forensics team to use Carbon Black to supplement our network visibility and reveal the entire “kill chain” of the attack.
Anyways, given our growing partnership I was curious about their thoughts on the recent trend of high-profile data breaches and the collection historical data so I sent some questions over to Ben Johnson, chief security strategist at Bit9 + Carbon Black (@chicagoben). You can see our exchange below.
Q: Given the high-profile nature of recent data breaches, how do you see the cybersecurity landscape changing? And, what is the most important thing for IT security staff to understand as we move forward in the ever advancing world of advanced and targeted attacks?
