Why Machine Learning Is an Essential Tool In the CISO’s Arsenal

The chief information security officer (CISO) faces threats such as compromised users, negligent employees and malicious insiders. For this reason, one of the most important tools in the CISO’s arsenal is user behavior analytics (UBA), a solution that scans data from a security information and event management (SIEM) system, correlates it by user and b

Man With Machine: Harnessing the Potential of Artificial Intelligence

When we think of artificial intelligence (AI), we think of robots — machines that mimic human behavior or thought. This is partly the influence of comics, novels, movies and other pop culture tidbits, but the boundaries of AI have progressed far beyond this basic personification. Originally defined by Alan Turing, AI initially referred to any machine that co
