Nine in ten Americans view data privacy as a human right, according to new report

ZDNet

Unless businesses improve their data privacy practices, they risk losing consumer trust and access to consumer data that they desperately need according to a new report. Customer data increasingly drives business strategy across the enterprise as businesses use our information to accurately target our wants and needs. But Americans are deeply suspicious of what companies are doing with their data according to a new report from professional services firm KPMG. Its new report about corporate data responsibility reveals how Americans are thinking about data privacy and what they expect from corporations who use their personal data. The company surveyed 1000 Americans in May 2020.


Top 10 Cybersecurity Companies To Watch In 2020

The majority of Information Security teams' cybersecurity analysts are overwhelmed today analyzing security logs, thwarting breach attempts, investigating potential fraud incidents and more. The following graphic compares the percentage of organizations by industry who are relying on AI to improve their cybersecurity. The bottom line is all organizations have an urgent need to improve endpoint security and resilience, protect privileged access credentials, reduce fraudulent transactions, and secure every mobile device applying Zero Trust principles. Many are relying on AI and machine learning to determine if login and resource requests are legitimate or not based on past behavioral and system use patterns. Several of the top ten companies to watch take into account a diverse series of indicators to determine if a login attempt, transaction, or system resource request is legitimate or not.

60 Cybersecurity Predictions For 2019

#artificialintelligence

I've always been a loner, avoiding crowds as much as possible, but last Friday I found myself in the company of 500 million people. The breach of the personal accounts of Marriott and Starwood customers forced us to join the 34% of U.S. consumers who experienced a compromise of their personal information over the last year. Viewed another way, there were 2,216 data breaches and more than 53,000 cybersecurity incidents reported in 65 countries in the 12 months ending in March 2018. How many data breaches we will see in 2019 and how big are they going to be? No one has a crystal ball this accurate and it's difficult to make predictions, especially about the future. Still, I made a brilliant, contrarian, and very accurate prediction last year, stating unequivocally that "there will be more spectacular data breaches" in 2018. Just like last year, this year's 60 predictions reveal the state-of-mind of key participants in the cybersecurity industry (on the defense team, of course) and cover all that's hot today. Topics include the use and misuse of data; artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning as a double-edge sword helping both attackers and defenders; whether we are going to finally "get over privacy" or see our data finally being treated as a private and protected asset; how the cloud changes everything and how connected and moving devices add numerous security risks; the emerging global cyber war conducted by terrorists, criminals, and countries; and the changing skills and landscape of cybersecurity.
