TYSONS CORNER, VA April 9, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — Nick Urick, vice president of FireEye’s (Nasdaq: FEYE) federal division, said organizations can try to look at cybersecurity from a different perspective using an “adaptive defense” strategy that could shorten the time to detect and mitigate an attack.

Such an approach would include strengthening threat intelligence sharing between government and industry, he told ExecutiveBiz in an exclusive interview published Tuesday.

“Government’s participation with industry improves situational awareness, gives people better contextual information around the threat and makes sharing of threat intelligence among other government agencies easier, ” Urick said.

He noted that the latest tools are needed to counter a rapidly evolving threat landscape, citing recent research that shows majority of the world’s known malicious software are used just once.

“Then we encourage organizations to adopt behavioral-based tools models, techniques and technologies that we have… and to actively monitor networks for advanced cyber threats, ” Urick said.
