2018: The year in cyber attacks

Although devoid of the headline-grabbing cyber attacks of 2017, this year has been no less impactful

Defenders can use AI to better harden their environments from attacks, Love observes. For example, AI-powered systems could launch a series of simulated attacks on an enterprise network over time in the hope that an attack iteration will stumble across a vulnerability that can be closed before it’s discovered by attackers.Read more

How Multi-Source Security Analytics Creates a Paradigm Shift in Enterprise Cyber Security

More and more enterprises are moving their systems and data to the Cloud and IoT to better manage their data, and to improve efficiency across various processes. However, this also expands the enterprise network perimeter beyond a physical IT infrastructure, increasing the surface area that needs to be protected against cyber security threats and potential breaches.Read more

AI Driven Cyber Security- The Biggest Weapon for CSOs in the Era

With AI constantly evolving and acquiring advanced deep learning capabilities, machines are becoming increasingly adept at learning how to recognise patterns and create models to help them perform a diverse range of tasks.

While it has several potential use-cases in enterprises, one of its most crucial applications has emerged in the realm of IT and cyber security. AI has the ability to not only add value to an organisation’s operations, but also significantly augment human functions pertaining to threat monitoring, detection, and response.Read more

The ‘Hack’ to Staying Secure in 2019

Speed, scale, accuracy: this is what artificial intelligence brings to the table, and this is why the technology is registering rapid adoption across multiple industries. AI uses its computational power to crunch through massive volumes of data and to extract relevant insights – all in a fraction of the time it would take human experts to accomplish the same task.Read more

What are the three problems plaguing cloud security today?

This much is clear: Security Concerns are likely preventing your business or organization from reaping the full benefits of the cloud. Get the full story on page 51.Read more

How AI and Human Intelligence Team Up to Save Businesses from Cybercrime?

The cost of cybercrime will reach USD 6 trillion each year according to research firm Cybersecurity Ventures. Cybercriminals today are using sophisticated ways to attack individuals and organisations. Not content with yesterday’s indiscriminate malware attacks, hackers are doing their own research to pinpoint precise vulnerabilities and exploit them.Read more

Is Artificial Intelligence Increasing Or Decreasing Cybercrime?

When analysing the current threat landscape, it is easy to see how fraught with challenges it is. Traditional, prevention-focused, rule-based security approaches became obsolete a while ago. The IT perimeter itself has become porous. Cybercriminals are using sophisticated, multi-layered attacks to take advantage of this situation. Recent attacks such as WannaCry highlight just how vulnerable the global IT landscape is to advanced threats.Read more

How Artificial Intelligence is Accelerating Cybersecurity?

Artificial Intelligence is a buzzword these days. In this article, we would like to cut through the hype surrounding this term and get to the heart of what AI has to offer in cybersecurity (and what is just hype).

Today’s Evolved Threat Landscape and the Need for AI

To be clear, there is a real need for AI to effectively defend against today’s evolved attacks.

In the past, effective cybersecurity meant analyzing system logs and alerts from IPS/AV products. But today, we have a lot more threat data to analyze. We now must look at network traffic, endpoint internals, application & transaction data, user access data, cloud data, threat intel data, social media data, dark web data… and the list goes on. It would be impossible for any human-only team of cybersecurity experts—no matter how effective they are—to analyze all relevant data to detect and respond to modern cyber threats....Read more

What are the most prevalent threats surrounding the industry today?

We see two big emerging cybersecurity threats right now. Firstly, with the continued digitalisation of the enterprise and cloud adoption, countless new vulnerability points have emerged in every organisation. Additionally, the increasing adoption of IoT will further accelerate this challenge....Read more

Changing Landscape of Security in NBFCs

Anything that is available on the internet or can get connected to it has the risk of getting hacked. To ensure a safe and secure banking experience, the need to have a robust cybersecurity mechanism is vital.

On one hand, the demand for_ digital payments is set to rise, on the other hand, the scare of cyber fraud is also bothering the financial institutions....Read more
