CrowdStrike's Dmitri Alperovitch Named To Foreign Policy's Leading Global Thinkers For 2013

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CrowdStrike, a global provider of security technologies and services focused on identifying advanced cyber threats and targeted attacks, today announced its Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dmitri Alperovitch, has been honored as one of Foreign Policy's Leading Global Thinkers for 2013. Foreign Policy's Leading Global Thinkers for 2013 have been featured in the December 2013 issue and will be honored at the Transformational Trends Forum at the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, DC on December 11 th, an event featuring keynote remarks by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. Previous lists have included luminaries such as Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

"It's a great honor to be selected as one of Foreign Policy's Leading Global Thinkers for 2013," said Dmitri Alperovitch. "As the world's government, commercial and personal computer networks increasingly face espionage intrusions, as well as disruptive and destructive attacks from the most resourced and powerful foreign military and intelligence agencies, the need for development of mature policy and diplomatic responses to cyber security incidents becomes self-evident. Advanced nation-states are now using cyber power for unrestricted economic warfare and national security-motivated espionage, as well as a force multiplier and signaling instrument in conflicts. The U.S. government urgently needs to develop an effective foreign and economic policy response against unprecedented economic cyber espionage that China is waging against Western companies and the ongoing disruptive cyber attacks against U.S. companies attributed to Iran."

Alperovitch is the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of CrowdStrike Inc., a security technology company focused on identifying and preventing damage from targeted cyber attacks and threats.  As CTO, Alperovitch leads CrowdStrike's intelligence, research and engineering teams, which have built the groundbreaking Falcon technology platform for real-time detection and attribution of cyber intrusions. Alperovitch is widely recognized as one of the top computer security researchers across the industry and as a thought-leader on cyber security policies and state tradecraft.
