Many companies are scrambling to find a way to better protect their now-remote team of employees, and as they do so, hackers will take every advantage to find the weaknesses in these spread-out company networks.
Although a relatively new corporate position, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are becoming an integral part of the corporate hierarchy as enterprises begin to take security concerns more seriously. It’s a smart move considering that in 2019 security breaches cost companies on average $3.92 million. Now in 2020, CISOs are facing accelerating old threats along with some brand new ones. Here are the top eight CISO concerns of 2020:
Today’s security and IT teams are increasingly relying on wire data to better secure their networks. A recent report conducted by network performance and security monitoring vendor VIAVI revealed that more network teams than ever consider wire data the most important data source when confronting security incidents.
While it’s true that having a SIEM is better than forgoing network monitoring all together, a standalone SIEM solution is simply insufficient in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Hackers and other bad actors have become more sophisticated — many of today’s cybercriminals can easily outsmart a standard SIEM setup.
Knowing the difference between Discriminative and Generative Unsupervised Learning can tell you a lot about the effectiveness of a cybersecurity solution’s artificial intelligence, for example, whether or not that security solution can perform actions like identifying and stopping a zero-day attack.
Unsupervised artificial intelligence, also known as context-aware or third-wave AI, is notoriously difficult to explain because there lacks an appropriate test to understand just how powerful the intelligence is. The widely known Turing Test for AI testing is no longer the right framework for modern-day AI testing.
