#artificialintelligence

Would you like to work on software that's transforming IT using AI? Would you like to start on the ground floor of a rapidly growing tech startup? The IT-Security landscape is broken, and a new paradigm shift is desperately needed. We are growing our team and looking for a Lead Software Developer. Your mission will help millions of people be more productive and secure from cyber-attacks by leading the extension and implementation of the Aiden innovation roadmap. Aiden is a new approach to Windows endpoint management that embraces core DevOps methodologies, cloud technology, and natural language processing.


The Pros and Cons of Enlisting AI for Cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the faculty of a computer system to learn and reason, therefore, mimicking human intelligence. Over the course of the past several years, AI has become an indispensable part of cybersecurity measures. AI can predict cyberattacks with matchless precision, helps to create better security features that can bring down the number of cyberattacks and mitigate its impact on IT infrastructure. Artificial intelligence is a powerful cybersecurity tool for enterprises. It is rapidly turning into a sophisticated protective gear for enterprise cybersecurity, and many enterprises are adopting it at a rapid pace. Statista, in a recent post, noted that in 2019 approximately 83% of organizations based in the United States consider that without AI, their organization fails to deal with cyberattacks.


Why is Cybersecurity Failing Against Ransomware?

#artificialintelligence

Yes, security is hard – no one is ever 100 percent safe from the threats lurking out there. But how is it that time and time again, companies – big companies – are continuing to fall for ransomware attacks? Let's explore the main reasons why, starting with some basics before getting more in-depth: Two-factor authentication (2FA) is probably the easiest security improvement an organization can implement, and it's one of the most advocated-for solutions by infosec professionals. Despite this, we continue to see breaches like Colonial Pipeline occur because organizations have either failed to implement 2FA or have failed to *fully* implement it. Anything that requires a username and password to access should have 2FA enabled.


New Cybersecurity Tools and Techniques are Needed to Protect AI

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is reorganizing the world, introducing innovations that will likely exceed those that came with the World Wide Web. And like the Web there were, and still are, security concerns. Today, trust in artificial intelligence is probably the single greatest risk to continuing AI innovation and adoption. A simple framework for the operational elements that need to be addressed for the responsible deployment of artificial intelligence must include'Fairness and Bias', 'Interpretability and Explainability', as well as the newest and equally important element of'Robustness and Security'. Note, that these are operational considerations, and privacy should be inherent in the design and implementation of responsible AI -- e.g., privacy must be foundational in every step of the process.


Combating Cybersecurity Threats Using Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Cybercriminals are no longer a threat to be taken lightly in today's world. Each year, data theft affects more than a hundred thousand people. Unfortunately, this number is rising despite the availability of effective cybersecurity measures. In this particular context, how can AI play a role in improving cybersecurity? Many businesses and individuals are rushing to refresh their systems and protect their data. Due to the dramatic increase in threats, the need for security checks has increased.

A new survey from Gartner found that a majority of CIOs are focusing their investments this year and next year on AI and distributed cloud technology. The 2022 CIO and Technology Executive Survey features data gleaned from 2,387 CIO and technology executive respondents in 85 countries, representing about $9 trillion in revenue/public-sector budgets and $198 billion in IT spending. The survey focused on on "business composability" -- which involves the mindset, technologies and set of operating capabilities that enable organizations to innovate and adapt quickly to changing business needs. Monika Sinha, research vice president at Gartner, said business composability is an "antidote to volatility." "Sixty-three percent of CIOs at organizations with high composability* reported superior business performance compared with peers or competitors in the past year. They are better able to pursue new value streams through technology, too," Sinha said, adding that the findings from the survey were presented during the Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo Americas.


Using Artificial Intelligence in Cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence can enhance human intelligence.AI systems if used can be very beneficial in cybersecurity, AI systems can be trained to generate alerts for threats, identify new types of malware and protect sensitive data and could be very useful against cyber attacks. According to research, a midsize company get alerts for over 200,000 cyber events every day. Some of these threats will therefore, naturally go unnoticed and cause severe damage to company and data. A lot of activity happens on a company's network. An mid-sized company itself has huge traffic.


U.S. pursues a unique solution to fight hackers. It revolves around esports.

Washington Post - Technology News

The U.S. cyber team's head coach, retired U.S. Army Special Forces Lt. Col. TJ O'Connor, noted the unique platform presented by cybersecurity competitions. Unlike other forms of computer science education, O'Connor said, staying up to date on the latest developments in cybersecurity is difficult, with hackers constantly iterating on and developing new tactics to break through cyberdefenses. it would still be hard to simulate being in the thick of such an operation, .


Applying The Power Of Deep Learning To Cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

Deep Instinct applies deep learning to cybersecurity--going beyond what machine learning can ... [ ] accomplish with a neural network designed to emulate the human brain and learn as it goes. Cyber attacks are not a new issue by any stretch of the imagination--but they are a rapidly growing threat. As the volume and types of technologies businesses and consumers use continues to expand, the attack surface--the configuration errors, vulnerabilities, human errors, or other weaknesses that increase the potential for a successful cyber attack--increases exponentially. To keep pace with the threat landscape, organizations need to rethink their approach to security. According to AVTest, there are more than 18,000 new malware and/or potentially unwanted applications identified every hour.
