Connect the Cyber Dots

Today’s Innovation in Government report highlights the government’s IT modernization challenges. Tom Topping, the Senior Director of Strategic Programs for FireEye, explains an important reason why agencies should do more to connect the cyber dots.

What I mean by this is, if you can take cyber intelligence and use that to understand who your threat actors are – if you know who's coming after you and you know how they attack organizations – all of a sudden your problem becomes smaller.

That's one of the real key metrics that you want cyber intelligence to do for you. You don't want it to flood you with data and make your problem harder. You want it to enable your organization to focus and then to take it from very specific indicators all the way up to being able to talk to the executives about risk.

Let FireEye, Carahsoft and their reseller partners help you imagine what your agency is capable of. Listen to the full program at – keyword Innovation in Government.
