Last week at the Joint Service Academy Cybersecurity Summit at the United States Military Academy in West Point, Palo Alto Networks President and CEO Mark McLaughlin spoke with Fox Business Network correspondent Jo Ling Kent about ongoing efforts to improve cybersecurity.

Mark homed in on three things organizations can do to achieve the end goal of raising the cost of a successful attack, and making it successful breaches more difficult for attackers:

  1. Have a breach prevention mindset
  2. Make sure to share threat intelligence
  3. Continually educate the public on cybersecurity and good cyber hygiene

The Summit is an invitation-only gathering of service academy graduates serving in critical leadership roles and select thought leaders from industry, government and academia that comes together to strengthen ties between industry and government, share best practices to secure the internet and defeat cyberthreats.
