Cybersecurity in Hospitality: An Unsolvable Problem?

A hospitality company’s vulnerability to a single point of failure is a massive weakness. Only one employee at one hotel needs to make one mistake to create a global crisis. And these failure points are likely. Hotel computer systems are in constant use from countless terminals. Most of the employees who interface with computers at hotels are not IT employees, nor are they trained to act sensitively to cyber security concerns. Many hotels utilise legacy systems, and even modern systems are rarely patched, updated, and protected...Read more

Securing The Base

Everyone believes that someday or another, they are going to have an incident but what determines whether it is a real breach or not is their ability to detect, respond and mitigate or remediate in time, or did they let it pass without being able to do anything about it..Read more

Why Artificial Intelligence in Cyber Security is Need of the Hour

A set of socket wrenches is not attractive. By itself, it won’t mend a car either. But in the hands of a skilled mechanic, there is little that cannot be repaired or improved. That is largely the situation with AI today. It won’t replace human security engineers neither can it handle cybersecurity on its own. However, it is now a critical tool for getting on top of cyber security, managing the volumes of threat data for better detection and response and keeping cyber defenses high enough to repel or evict attackers before any serious damage can be done.Read more

Evolution of Blockchain Technology

It is clear many individuals and organisations from different fields are now looking at applications for blockchain that extend far beyond its origins in cryptocurrency and new financial models. Of course, banking appears to be the first major industry investing heavily in blockchain. But, as we are seeing, everyone from Microsoft to academia are exploring the technology's potential, and its implications to disrupt their industries. It's no surprise then that blockchain is now producing real implications for the cybersecurity field.Read more

Is Healthcare in India GDPR ready?

Part of the GDPR concerns the right of European Union individuals to have their personal data removed from an organisation’s database. This may need to be balanced against other legal requirements, such as maintaining billing records for healthcare provided. Clearly, where there are no other legal requirements to retain data and an individual from the EU demands that his or her data is to be deleted, the organisation in question must comply.Read more

How Design Thinking Can Change Cybersecurity

Design thinking teaches how to act small and fast. To build small prototypes. To refine what’s working. To break what isn’t. To embrace experimentation to prove (or disprove) ideas quickly and to constantly adjust to user feedback. Design thinking asks you to think long-term, but to then focus on quickly building small steps to reach that goal.Read more

SMEs Remain Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks

“To defend against creative, high-volume, multi-channel attacks, they require AI platform to process threat data and accelerate detection and response. However, AI platforms are too expensive for SMEs to develop, especially since they face a massive security skills shortage. Simply put— SMEs can’t do it alone,” explains Amit Roy, Executive Vice President & Regional Head EMEA, Paladion.Read more

AI in Cybersecurity: Beyond the Hype

Last week of April, I had attended the Artelligence Forum, Dubai. My mission was simple: to investigate modern Artificial Intelligence (AI) in order to separate the technology’s hype from its real-world applications.

Clearly, AI has been in the news a lot in recent years. But, truth be told, I did not take it very seriously at first.

Challenges Remain in AI Cybersecurity and Healthcare

"We need AI in cybersecurity because the threat landscape has changed," he said at Artelligence - The Artificial Intelligence Forum 2018. "There is pressure on CEOs and IT departments to move all their operations and data to the cloud. This has brought about new threats that didn't exist before. In addition to that, there has been an increase in the number of deadly cyberattacks in recent years."Read more

Relax, AI It Isn't Really a Threat to Humans

The recent explosion in new-age technology such as artificial intelligence, which is today being integrated in systems across various industries, has raised concerns about how safe societies across the world are. However, experts at Artelligence - The Artificial Intelligence Forum 2018 pointed out that AI in itself is not a threat to humanity, rather a threat emerges when it is used for immoral purposes.Read more
