CrowdStrike Co-Founder Dmitri Alperovitch on the SolarWinds Hack

Technovation with Peter High (CIO, CTO, CDO, CXO Interviews)

In this interview, we discuss Dmitri’s perspectives on the recent US government hack believed by many to have originated in Russia, including why the hack was not an act of war but instead was traditional espionage, why this hack has potential to be 100X as significant as the OPM hack, as well as some of the silver linings of the hack. We discuss how organizations can protect themselves from adversaries, including why every organization needs to start with the assumption that an attacker is already inside, why trying to build walls around the perimeter of your network is futile, and the importance of planning regularly to defend a cyber attack. We also discuss the importance of using a password manager, why individuals should be suspicious of emails and not click attachments from unknown people, why our government is at its weakest point to be able to respond to this threat, among a variety of other topics.
