An Ever-Present Cybersecurity Threat in the IoT, Says Symantec CEO

Greg Clark

Symantec CEO Greg Clark says that there are many new cybersecurity threats showing up including threats around the Internet of Things. Greg Clark, President and CEO of Symantec, discusses new cybersecurity threats including threats to the Internet of Things in an interview on CNBC.

“The injection of consumer IoT in the enterprise and all through the home is important,” says Clark. “What we found in the last couple of years at Symantec where we’ve been putting things like the Norton Core product into the home is that the number of resident malware platforms that are in there is substantial. There is definitely an ever-present threat in the IoT.”

The Cyber Crisis Continues

The cyber crisis continues. We definitely have a new set of threats that are showing up. I think it’s a testament to the fact that it’s ever-changing and the partners that you pick to help you defend it are really important.

Cyber defense is a continuously moving target. There are a bunch of things that that should be there for the long haul. At Symantec, we put those things together and we deliver them to you integrated. What’s important is that there are a bunch of problems that emerge that are not solved and it takes a vibrant startup community and investment community around that to address some of those.

Really, it’s the sum of big cyber investments like we have at Symantec and some of the other big players in the industry as well as the vibrant startup community. The combination of those things integrated is what we call Integrated Cyber Defense.

I think it’s very important for our customers and partners in really addressing a bunch of the crisis. Net is that it moves all the time and so there are all kinds of different things that need to happen. The big transition at the moment, from cloud to mobile, new attack surface, new methods of beating people and stealing information. It’s definitely a very vibrant time for cyber defense.
