In 2017, the cybersecurity world saw a rise in destructive attacks unlike any we’ve experienced before. Adversary groups don’t observe geographic or industry boundaries, criminal groups have learned to work together to increase their effectiveness, and these malicious actors continue to innovate to achieve their geopolitical or financially-motivated objectives. The impact of these developments is that cybersecurity can no longer be considered an IT problem. It is a business problem.
Just a few of the challenges addressed by the CrowdStrike’s Services team in 2018 included: helping with midterm election security; exposing persistent eCrime actors and nation-state adversaries; helping Fortune 500 enterprises and government agencies recover from complex ransomware outbreaks; identifying active attackers in government organizations and critical systems; and addressing vulnerabilities in supply chains.
