Unsupervised learning actually draws inferences from datasets without labels. It is best used if you want to find patterns but don’t know exactly what you’re looking for.
Hosted by Mark Ehr, Senior Consulting Analyst for 451 Research Advisors and Igor Mezic, Chief Scientist and CTO for MixMode on Tuesday, November 1st at 1pm EST / 10am PST, they will discuss why security analytics needs to include advanced Third-Wave AI, which autonomously learns normal behavior and adapts to constantly changing network environments, to address the next generation of cyberthreats and increase SOC productivity.
Cybersecurity teams working in municipal settings face a constant struggle — protecting vital public network infrastructure with limited resources. The situation can reach a breaking point when these teams become overwhelmed managing false positive and negative flags triggered by legacy cybersecurity solutions.
October is recognized every year as Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM). Starting in 2004, this important awareness month has been a collaboration between The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) to lead a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise cybersecurity awareness nationally and internationally.
It’s the open secret no one’s talking about — too many cybersecurity solutions in the marketplace stand no chance of providing comprehensive coverage because they are incapable of handling data arising from all sources. Many available solutions are effectively legacy platforms hiding within fresh marketing packages.
Let’s take a closer look at the false narrative being propagated in the cybersecurity market and explore some more appropriate alternatives. An example of a legacy cyber tool vendor “feature” being touted as an ideal solution to the problem of automatic remediation is reliant on a standard (though rarely used for reasons we will explore in this article) function known as TCP Reset.
MixMode’s unsupervised, third-wave AI computes patterns of interaction over many different timescales, contrasting it over the next 5-minute interval with what was seen previously. Should patterns deviate, the platform performs an assessment of the security risk implied in that deviation and presents it to the user.
The nation’s largest Financial Services providers are a favorite target for nation-state sponsored and coordinated cyber-attacks. Despite significantly more financial and resource investment in cybersecurity than any other industry, critical infrastructure breaches and novel attacks remain a daily occurrence.
