If a cybersecurity company like FireEye can be breached by a state actor, how concerned are you about malicious actors?

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.
