Every company can be breached. It’s trite, but it is not a matter of if, but when.

With that, FireEye was an extremely big target. They had information about much of the Fortune 500 and Federal  government. They also had a large cache of powerful security tools. This made them one of the largest targets in the world.

They were ostensibly the victim of a nation-state attack. These nation-state attacks require people and money, and they are limited who they can attack. So it is not like every company is going to be a target of nation-state attacks.  But if you are on their radar, ensure your guard is up.

This is a skewed question. You have to go back an look at how this occurred ? And how it came about, cause. Remember they (Mandiant, a FireEye company) discovered the breach. However, I am very concerned about malicious actors.
