The Growing Role of Machine Learning in Cybersecurity - SecurityRoundTable.org

#artificialintelligence

Why has machine learning become so critical to cybersecurity? With machine learning, cybersecurity systems can analyze patterns and learn from them to help prevent similar attacks and respond to changing behavior. Machine learning helps cybersecurity teams be more pro-active in preventing threats and responding to active attacks in real time. Machine learning can reduce the amount of time spent on routine tasks and enable organizations to use their resources more strategically. In short, machine learning can make cybersecurity simpler, more proactive, less expensive and far more effective.


How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Cyber Security Landscape and Preventing Cyber Attacks

#artificialintelligence

The world is going digital at an unprecedentedly fast pace, and the change is only going to go even faster. The digitalization means everything is moving at lightning speed – business, entertainment, trends, new products, etc. The consumer gets what he or she wants instantly because the service provider has the means to deliver it. While the conveniences and benefits of this digital era are many, it also brings with it several negatives. One of the most significant and destructive threats it poses is that our private information is at risk like never before.


AI, Cybersecurity, & The Data Trap: You Don't Know Normal

#artificialintelligence

BILLINGTON CYBERSECURITY SUMMIT: Artificial Intelligence has a big big-data problem when it comes to network defense, senior defense officials warned this afternoon. Sure, AI can pounce on a problem in a microsecond, long before a human operator can react. All you need to do is train the machine-learning algorithms. So you let the AI prowl through every computer, smartphone, server, router, Internet connection, etc. until the algorithm learns what normal looks like on your network. Then the AI can sit back and watch every passing bit and byte, ready to jump on any anomalous activity from malware slipping in as an email attachment to a disgruntled employee downloading all your sensitive files, Edward Snowden-style.


What They Are Saying: Support For DOE's New Artificial Intelligence and Technology Office

#artificialintelligence

On Friday, September 6, 2019, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry announced the formal establishment of DOE's Artificial Intelligence and Technology Office. Chief Technology Officer of the United States, Michael Kratsios: "Under Secretary Perry's leadership, the Department of Energy is critical to our Nation's success in the development and application of artificial intelligence. I commend the Secretary for establishing the Artificial Intelligence and Technology Office to coordinate DOE's vast AI efforts and carry out the mission of the Trump Administration's national strategy for American leadership in AI." Representative Bill Foster (D-IL): "Developments in artificial intelligence are at the forefront of technological innovations that are changing our country and our world. The Department of Energy and our world-class national laboratories are leading the way, including in the district I represent, where Argonne National Laboratory is building the world's most advanced supercomputer to power the use of AI for everything from responding to climate change, to fighting cancer, and ensuring our nation's security. DOE's new Artificial Intelligence and Technology Office will play a crucial role in coordinating the work being done in AI and provide support for the researchers across DOE who are on the frontlines of this transformative work. I applaud Secretary Perry for continuing DOE's long history of scientific leadership by establishing this new office, and I look forward to working in Congress to support AITO's work, as well as the continued technological leadership of our national labs."


5 Important Benefits that AI Brings to Cloud Security

#artificialintelligence

As the cyber threats become more advanced with each passing year, so should the technologies that businesses implement to elevate cybersecurity and prevent cyberattacks and data leaks. The modem hacker is smart and cunning, and they will try to exploit every possible loophole in your firewall and security structure to gain access to your IT infrastructure, tap into your data centers, and sell all of that valuable information to the highest bidder. Most importantly, understand that the modern hacker has all of the sophisticated tech and software needed to enter your system. This is why forward-looking companies have begun implementing AI and machine learning into their strategies in order to strengthen their cybersecurity as a whole. Let's explore the five important benefits that AI brings to the table, and how your business can benefit from its implementation when it comes to cloud security.

From email correspondence and financial transactions to professional networking, technology plays a critical role in business operations. Unfortunately, our adoption of technology is subject to overcoming security challenges. An increasing number of cyber-attacks indicate that several businesses lack adequate protection against online threats. According to IBM, the average cost of a cybersecurity breach has been increasing and is now at $3,860,000. The company also estimates that the cost of each stolen record that has sensitive information in 2018 was $148.


AI and ML: Game Changers for the Enterprises – Enterprise It World

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are two of the disruptive forces in the industry today. Being in their early stages, they already have the potential to absolutely change the way business decisions are made in the organization. AI/ML favors companies with significant data stores on historic operations. So, it favors companies with scale and those who have invested in ERP, CRM, MES, Sensor Data, etc. and kept historic data. Very small companies and those that have thrown out historic data will be at a disadvantage." Conversations around Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning began in the 1950s. It was then that people started talking about these technologies academically, in relation to the business and what they could generally mean for the development of computer science. In 2019, AI and ML's all-encompassing presence within the business operations have transformed them from merely a niche solution to a mainstream disruptive force. Anil Arora, Principal Data Scientist, SAS India notes that an explosion of data sources, low costs of computational power and advancements in methods and algorithms are the catalysts that have led to the advancement of AI and ML over the last decade. Artificial intelligence is poised to unleash the next wave of digital disruption, and companies should prepare for it now. AI promises benefits, but also poses urgent challenges that cut across firms, developers, government, and workers. The workforce needs to be reskilled to exploit AI rather than compete with it."

Are all AI technicians created equal?

#artificialintelligence

At Deep Instinct, we pride ourselves on preventing what other cybersecurity solutions can't even detect. To make a long story short, and to paraphrase my last blog post on Machine Learning vs Deep Learning [READ], we achieve this through a combination of AI, machine learning and deep learning. Deep Learning is not a technology that is widely used by companies in production yet, with only a select few managing to move it beyond academic research, for commercial use. A greater barrier in Deep Learning is recruiting, there is a real scarcity of deep learning scientists. Even the largest technology companies (Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc), are struggling to recruit deep learning scientists, and even recruiting deep learning engineers (who lack a more in-depth scientific understanding of the subject) is an extremely challenging task.
