Tech jobs: These are the 10 most in-demand developer, cybersecurity and cloud roles

ZDNet

Despite fears of a looming recession and hiring freezes at a number of major tech companies, demand for tech-based roles continues to run high. Most companies have been forced to increase their reliance on – and investment in – technology over the past two and a half years. That's left them with a number of gaps in the workforce to fill, whether in IT security, software development, IT support or data analysis. ZDNet takes an in-depth look at key trends in software development and how developers are changing the tech industry. Some tech professionals are seeing greater demand than others.


How AI Is Useful -- and Not Useful -- for Cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence has advanced greatly in the past decade. On my phone, I'm reading Apple and Google news that is well-tailored to me, thanks to AI recommendation models. Self-driving cars are already picking up passengers for rides in downtown San Francisco. The same transformation is happening in the cybersecurity world too. However, questions remain: Will AI replace security professionals?


Cybersecurity and AI: A new path for regional research and futures

#artificialintelligence

Pogrebna is a pioneer in behavioural data science – a field that combines behavioural science and data science techniques to better understand, model and predict the behaviour of humans, algorithms and complex systems in the face of risk and uncertainty. "I warmly welcome Professor Pogrebna to the University and look forward to working with her to establish the Cybersecurity and Data Science Institute," Charles Sturt pro vice-chancellor (Research and Innovation) Professor Mark Evans said. "Professor Pogrebna comes to the University with a wealth of experience. This includes being the Lead of the Behavioural Data Science strand at The Alan Turing Institute – the national centre for AI and data science in London where she is also a Fellow working on hybrid modelling approaches between behavioural science and data science (e.g. According to Evans, Pogrebna helps leaders in businesses, charities and the public sector better understand why they make the decisions they make and how they can optimise their behaviour to achieve higher profit, better social and commercial outcomes, and bolster the wellbeing of their teams. Pogrebna said her goal as executive director of the Cybersecurity and Data Science Institute is to avoid'building a silo'. "I have spent several weeks visiting our researchers across the University's campuses and became aware of the incredible work they are doing," she said. "The new Institute will aim to support our local talent and build on it, seeing how we can develop new research collaborations in Australia as well as internationally.


Automotive Cybersecurity Market - Insights, Forecast to 2026

#artificialintelligence

The global Automotive Cybersecurity Market size is projected to grow from USD 2.0 billion in 2021 to USD 5.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 21.3%. Increasing incidents of cyber-attacks on vehicles and massive vehicles recalls by OEMs have increased awareness about automotive cybersecurity among OEMs globally. Moreover, increasing government mandates on incorporating several safety features, such as rear-view camera, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning system, and electronic stability control, have further opened new opportunities for automotive cybersecurity service providers globally. As a result, there are various start-ups present in the automotive cybersecurity ecosystem. Government initiatives toward building an intelligent transport system have also further escalated the demand for cybersecurity solutions all over the world.


Exclusive Talk with Toby Lewis, Global Head of Threat Analysis at Darktrace

#artificialintelligence

Toby: My role here at Darktrace is the Global Head of Threat Analysis. My day-to-day job involves looking at the 100 or so cybersecurity analysts we have spread from New Zealand to Singapore, the UK, and most major time zones in the US. My main role is to evaluate how we can use the Darktrace platform to work with our customers. How can we ensure that our customers get the most out of our cybersecurity expertise and support when using AI to secure their network? The other half of my role at Darktrace is subject matter expertise. This role involves talking to reporters like yourself or our customers who want to hear more about what Darktrace can do to help them from a cybersecurity perspective, discussing the context of current events. That part of my role was born out of a nearly 20-year career in cybersecurity. I first started in government and was one of the founding members of the National Cybersecurity Center here in the UK.


La veille de la cybersécurité

#artificialintelligence

Serial cybersecurity entrepreneur Shlomo Kramer said in a 2005 interview that cybersecurity is "a bit like Alice in Wonderland" where you run as fast as you can only to stay in place. In 2020, to paraphrase the second part of the Red Queen's observation (actually from Through the Looking Glass), if you wish to stay ahead of cyber criminals, you must run twice--or ten times--as fast as that. The 141 predictions listed here reveal the state-of-mind of key participants in the cybersecurity defense industry and highlight all that's hot today. The future is murky, but we know for sure that on January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will go into effect; that the U.S. presidential election will take place on November 3, 2020; and that on October 1, 2020, if you "wish to fly on commercial aircrafts or access federal facilities" in the U.S., you must have a REAL ID compliant card. Other than these known events, the crystal balls of the participants in this survey warn us about the impact of emerging technologies such as AI, 5G, and quantum computing and evolving technologies such as the internet of things (IoT), things that move (autonomous vehicles and mobile phones), and the cloud; the role cybersecurity will play in the presidential election; the emerging global cyber war; the increasingly targeted and profitable ransomware attacks; the sorry state of personal data privacy; the significant issue of the best way to deal with identity and authentication; the new targets and types of cyber attacks; how to fix cyber defense; the important role people play in cybersecurity and what do about the cybersecurity skills shortage; and the good, the bad, and the ugly of the business of cybersecurity.


How AI is shaping the cybersecurity arms race

#artificialintelligence

The average business receives 10,000 alerts every day from the various software tools it uses to monitor for intruders, malware and other threats. Cybersecurity staff often find themselves inundated with data they need to sort through to manage their cyber defenses. Cyberattacks are increasing and affect thousands of organizations and millions of people in the U.S. alone. These challenges underscore the need for better ways to stem the tide of cyber-breaches. Artificial intelligence is particularly well suited to finding patterns in huge amounts of data.

Artificial intelligence and cybersecurity risks: Take steps to address AI vulnerabilities

#artificialintelligence

The experts say considerations for managing security must be made right from the design and planning phases of any AI project.iStockPhoto Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is a powerful asset in business, allowing machines to think for themselves – and at a faster pace than ever before. But AI systems can pose cybersecurity challenges, which can cause operational, financial, health and safety, and reputational damage. BDO Lixar, which is BDO Canada's national technology consulting business arm, helps organizations recognize and manage such risks. Partners Rocco Galletto, head of cybersecurity, and Daryl Senick, who is responsible for data and AI, as head of financial services, talk about the potential vulnerabilities of AI and what can be done to make these systems safe and secure.
