Yun-Hee Kim, the technology editor for The Wall Street Journal, speaks to Sarah Guo, general partner of Greylock Partners, and Crowdstrike CEO George Kurtz on Monday during a conference on Monday in Laguna Beach.

The mention of CrowdStrike was something that even the CEO of the cybersecurity firm George Kurtz wasn't expecting.

"Well, it's a surprise to me. I think from our perspective we get called in all the time to do forensic work," he said during The Wall Street Journal's Tech Live conference in Laguna Beach on Monday.

"You know, I'm not a politician. I'm a security guy and we're just focused on keeping our customers safe," Kurtz said.
