TYSONS CORNER, VA, December 20, 2019 — Tom Topping, senior director of strategic programs at FireEye (Nasdaq: FEYE) said agencies should have continuous organizational and threat visibility to defend against cyber attacks, GovCon Wire reported Dec. 10.

He wrote in an article for Carahsoft's Innovation in Government series that insight can help public sector organizations to patch vulnerabilities, facilitate agency leader-security team communications and intercept malicious actors attempting to evade security measures.

"Breaches will continue until agencies have better insight and are able to catch attackers not just at the perimeter, but also after they get inside," Topping noted.
