Artificial intelligence could one day take charge of cybersecurity

Cyber Security
For a long time, information security has been a war between men but recently it has become a battle between man and machine. The development of AI is slowly moving this fight into a new environment: machine versus machine, carefully directed by scientists or hackers. A number of cybersecurity companies are now turning to machine learning in an attempt to stay one step ahead of professionals working to steal industrial secrets, disrupt national infrastructures, hold computer networks for ransom and even influence elections. A study from 2016 uncovered that information theft is the primary concern of companies. Yet, over half of them (5 8%) don’t have the necessary systems in place to detect a sophisticated attack, which is explained by the fact that 42% don’t have a threat det

Technology
Whether you consider yourself tech-inclined or not, you’ve likely heard of AI.  Or maybe you’ve noticed the onslaught of headlines describing AI as either the future or a cause for concern. So it’s worth asking, what will AI mean to you? What will the coming revolution mean for your day-to-day work, your business, and ultimately, your customers? Artificial intelligence (AI) had a big year in 2016, with massive strides forward in deep machine learning, IoT, predictive forecasting, more intelligent business processes and smart personal assistants. While technology seems to move at an ever-increasing rate, AI is seemingly everywhere and may prove to be one of the fastest-growing technology segments in 2017. That’s why organizations need to determine how exactly they need to prepa

Governance, Internet, Technology
Organizations and individuals are overwhelmed by the rising number of threats. There’s simply too much security- related data coming onto the network from an ever-widening array of connected devices. In addition, threats are growing in scale and complexity. To meet this demand, a new solution has emerged offering to apply machine learning to enterprise security. These tools deliver the ability to analyze networks, learn about them, detect anomalies and protect enterprises from threats. This security solution is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides computers with the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning focuses on the development of computer programs that can teach themselves to grow and change when exposed to new data.
