CPO Magazine: Proactive vs Responsive AI: Which One Protects Against Major Modern Adversaries in Cybersecurity?

MixMode CTO and Chief Scientist, Igor Mezic, recently contributed an article for CPO Magazine that examines the evolution of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) within cybersecurity, the three waves of AI, and the modern-day application of predictive AI in cybersecurity to protect against adversaries who are also utilizing AI technology.

Innovation During a Crisis: A story of PIE and Ice Cream

Some of you may have seen the “funny” statistic in the last few months that during the pandemic, ice cream sales are way up while deodorant sales are way down. Let’s just say that, for me, it’s coffee ice cream. Dessert aside, this stat does lead one to think about what other trends occur during a pandemic or a crisis when we look back at events such as world wars, the Great Depression, the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2007-08, etc.

Our Top 2020 Cybersecurity Insights

The transition from office to remote environments was abrupt and one of the most defining moments that the cybersecurity industry and professionals faced in 2020. We wrote about the top issues CISOs were facing throughout the year but also doubled down on sharing insights about the evolution of next-generation SOCs, the failure of SIEM platforms as organizations are experiencing them today, and how self-supervised AI fits into the equation.

Russian Hack of U.S. Federal Agencies Shine Spotlight on SIEM Failures in Cybersecurity

In what the New York Times is calling, “One of the most sophisticated and perhaps largest hacks in more than five years,” malicious adversaries acting on behalf of a foreign government, likely Russian, broke into the email systems of multiple U.S. Federal agencies including the Treasury and Commerce Departments.

Techiexpert: How Predictive AI Protects Against Ransomware, GANs and More

MixMode CTO and Chief Scientist, Igor Mezic, recently contributed an article for Techiexpert that examines three modern AI adversarial attacks, the financial toll they are having on some of our most important systems (including healthcare), and how predictive, third-wave AI is the only future-proof cybersecurity solution to protect organizations from these intelligent attacks.

Recent Ransomware Attacks on U.S. Hospitals Highlight the Inefficiency of Rules-Based Cybersecurity Solutions

A number of recent high profile ransomware attacks on U.S. hospitals have demonstrated the urgency for organizations, municipalities, and critical services to take a proactive approach to protecting networks with a predictive AI solution.

What is Predictive AI and How is it Being Used in Cybersecurity?

The predictive AI field of machine learning collects, analyzes, and tests data to predict future possibilities. AI’s neurological network is patterned on the human brain. But AI works on a scale that goes far beyond what is humanly possible. The top uses for predictive AI technologies to protect sensitive data and systems are in network detection and response (NDR), threat detection, and cybercrime prevention.

Whitepaper: Self-Supervised Learning – AI For Complex Network Security

Artificial Intelligence – or AI – has become a buzzword since it emerged in the 1950s. However, all AI systems are not created equal. In our white paper, “Self-Supervised Learning – AI For Complex Network Security,” Dr. Peter Stephenson explains the different “waves” of artificial intelligence. He uses the DARPA definitions for each of these …

Turning the Unsupervised Tables on the Turing Test

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.

5 Ways to Modernize Your MSSP Security Monitoring Program

MSSPs are helping their customers deal with a fast-paced and ever-evolving threat landscape. It is critical, now more than ever, to evaluate new monitoring tools that produce more actionable data and alerts to help unearth and combat these modern threats more efficiently.    I recently read an article titled  “4 Technologies SMBs Can Use to Modernize …
