July 26, 2017

On July 26, Fortune published a video featuring Nicole Friedlander in an article titled “What Makes a Hacker? Two Cyber Experts Explain.” In the video interview, Nicole explained the rapidly evolving hacking landscape and the threats hackers pose to companies. She highlighted recent changes in cybercrime, including the increased interconnectivity of cybercriminals and the trend of hackers researching the companies they target in depth. “It used to be that cyber criminals targeted money and credit cards, but today they target intellectual property or material non-public information. For example, upcoming mergers and acquisitions,” she said. “The way companies need to think about data is 'if this data has any value to the company, then hackers are trying to steal it.'”
