A recent WhiteHat Security survey revealed that more than 70 percent of respondents cited AI-based tools as contributing to more efficiency. More than 55 percent of mundane tasks have been replaced by AI, freeing up analysts for other departmental tasks.
Zero Day Attacks
For the past few years, many have been talking about the changing “threat landscape” as it pertains to the increase in zero day, insider and phishing threats. While all of these threats are on the rise, and constitute a concern, there is, perhaps, an even larger shift presenting a threat to enterprises – the shift …
The 2020 Clearview AI data breach spawned hundreds of attention-grabbing headlines, and for good reason. The company works closely with law enforcement agencies and other entities by sharing personal information about millions of people, for a variety of purposes. The breach raised many questions about the vulnerability of personal data in general.
For the past few years, a major problem has been mounting in the cybersecurity industry: a people shortage. Even before the outbreak of the current global pandemic, enterprises were hurting in the cybersecurity hiring department. Companies are struggling to find employable cybersecurity professionals to handle an ever increasing and evolving number of new threats from …
In today’s ever evolving cybersecurity landscape there are major problems facing professionals that continue to worsen. These problems center around a shortage of tools advanced enough to understand the baseline of a network in order to pinpoint anomalies and a massive information overload problem in the form of security alerts.
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:
Bad actors do not discriminate. Organizations across all sectors are at risk — corporations, non-profits, and increasingly, federal and state government entities. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported that security incidents increased by 1,300 percent from 2006 to 2015. This number is growing.
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.
The reality is that most companies and entities are entrusted with sensitive data. As regulations tighten and consumer expectations rise, it is more important than ever to protect data, whenever it is gathered, accessed, shared, or stored. Let’s take a look at a few of the newsworthy data breaches that happened in 2019. Often, studying these cases can inform SecOps teams about what not to do.
