Proofpoint, which was acquired by private equity firm Thoma Bravo in 2021, has merged with Dathena, a New York-based AI data protection platform. Dathena's platform will address the need in Proofpoint's cloud management platform for safeguards against breaches and data exposure.
Cybersecurity in today's world is no longer primarily about the implementation of products or solutions. It is more about the analysis of behavior and the ecosystem. Krishnamurthy Rajesh of ICRA discusses the role of artificial intelligence and the need for collaboration among business functions.
CISOs need to harden the algorithms written for artificial intelligence, as cybercriminals always leverage AI to launch a zero-day vulnerability, says Manojkumar Parmar, technical global program director at Bosch.
AI-based image recognition technology used by radiologists to help improve the speed and accuracy of medical diagnoses - such as detecting breast cancer in mammography images - is vulnerable to cyberattacks that can trick the AI, as well as doctors, into potentially making the wrong diagnoses, a new study says.
The world of IT is moving faster, and in more directions at once, than ever. From classic ITOps to DevOps and DevSecOps, our leaders predict key trends for the new year:
Serverless: Great idea, with more complexities than most IT teams realize.
Edge computing: You’ll get so tired of the buzz, you’ll stop...
Two Senate leaders on Thursday introduced legislation that would form a working group charged with monitoring the security of AI data obtained by federal contractors. This body would also ensure that the data adequately protects national security and recognizes privacy rights, the lawmakers say.
As the risks to IT and OT converge, organizations must use "zero trust" to verify user identities and build effective monitoring capabilities to track the behavior of privileged users, say Kartik Shahani of Tenable and Rohan Vaidya of CyberArk.
According to a panel of experts, protecting the Active Directory, a rich target for increasing ransomware attacks, will require organizations to audit privileged accounts and endpoints with continuous monitoring and an identity governance approach.
The U.S. Department of Commerce this week announced the establishment of an artificial intelligence advisory committee set to counsel President Joe Biden and other federal agencies on issues ranging from privacy concerns to data security, along with global competition and inherent biases.
As the lines blur between identity and privilege, there is a growing set of solutions to secure the anytime, anywhere workforce. Archit Lohokare, CyberArk’s vice president of product management, discusses passwordless authentication, zero trust and other ways enterprises are modernizing identity and access.
The artificial intelligence systems used by image recognition tools, such as those that certain connected cars use to identify street signs, can be tricked to make an incorrect identification by a low-cost but effective attack using a camera, a projector and a PC, according to Purdue University researchers.
To help balance security and user convenience, organizations should offer centralized user access to applications, says Krishnamurthy Rajesh, head of IT and information security at ICRA, an India-based credit rating agency.
