The FBI’s former cyber security chief was in London, looking for UK recruits. He wasn’t hunting for fresh law enforcement personnel, however. He was looking to get British businesses involved in the fight against cyber criminals.
That’s because that man, Shawn Henry, is president at CrowdStrike, one of the more controversial security companies to have hit town in recent times. Its premise is refreshing: it is time to take the fight to cyber criminals. It wants businesses to defend their networks by turning the tables on hackers. There have been suggestions, which the company has not denied, CrowdStrike will even hack back. It’s this offensive approach, however, that has led to claims the one-year-old firm is "nuts."
