Using New Technologies to Reduce Cyber Threats, Risk of Security Breach
Hikvision Blog Examines Plans to Prepare for Security Breach
The Security magazine piece, “Tipping the Scale for Effective Cybersecurity,” advises security officers on ways to counter evolving cyber threats and risk of security breach using new technologies.
From the article: “All sorts of malicious actors are converging upon today’s increasingly vulnerable attack surface, regardless of whether they are motivated by pride, money or ideology. Major attacks such as the Mirai botnet Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and WannaCry ransomware are clear demonstrations of the scope and breadth of cyber threat actors. Furthermore, 2.6 billion records were compromised worldwide in 2017, an 87 percent increase over 2016, which translates to 7.1 million records that are stolen or lost per day.”
With the expansion of factors like IoT and cloud, cybersecurity has increased in complexity. The article recommends the application of machine learning to complement the efforts of cyber analysts by enabling rapid analysis of data patterns and trends. Artificial intelligence can also “help organizations to automate the time-consuming process of analyzing the data to understand a threat and to augment their human analysts, who then must add context and determine how to respond.”
The article added that “the conversation needs to be about how to apply these technologies in the right way, to augment the analysts, not replace them.” Read more here.
