Interview - Global threat report 2019: Why it's time to stop treating security as an afterthought

2018 appeared to be a good year for cyber security defenders. There was an absence of high-profile events that were observed in 2017, such as WannaCry and NotPetya. But why? Are the defenders winning the battle in the cyber arms race?

On the surface, 2018 appeared to be a good year for cyber security defenders. There was an absence of high-profile events that were observed in 2017, such as WannaCry and NotPetya. But why? Are the defenders winning the battle in the cyber arms race? Or are we just not hearing about the attacks? SC Media UK editor Tony Morbin asks these questions and more to Jennifer Ayers, VP, OverWatch and Security Response at CrowdStrike.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Ayers shares some of CrowdStrike’s findings from its 2019 Global Threat Report, providing guidance on the actions organisations need to take to strengthen their security postures.

Some of the main issues covered include the emerging threat of espionage tools coming out of North Korea, the difference in breakout times of threats from Russia and China, and why it’s essential that organisations start to make security a key part of their business operating procedures.
