In today’s hyper-competitive world, releasing early and often is a business necessity. When done right, this unrelenting commitment to speed enables product teams to quickly respond to shifting market conditions. But sometimes, agility can lead to a lack of strategic focus. Releases degenerate delivering shiny objects that temporarily fascinate the product or sales organizations without wowing customers.
As the volume of cyberattacks grows, security analysts have become overwhelmed. To address this issue, developers are showing more interest in using Machine Learning (ML) to automate threat-hunting. In fact, researchers have tried to implement ML in cybersecurity solutions since the late 1980s, but progress has been slow. Today, ML is showing increasing promise with the advent of Big Data because the quality of information from which ML can learn is improving. However, there is much more to be done.

Every few months it seems there is another wave of new ideas, and with it the need to sift out which are worth taking a closer look at versus those that are just hype. Security leaders must be careful in all ways, first and foremost as they listen to their teams, who will always be challenging them with new ideas and the latest cool ‘tool.’ And on the other side of the coin, they need to protect their business from technology that is not matched to the company’s risk factors. Either way, finding balance is key and is the right answer.

The retail industry is a favorite target of cyber attackers. Hackers know a successful attack on a retailer can give them access to the data of thousands or even millions of payment cardholders.

Cyber crime is big business; it’s projected to cause damages of $6 trillion by 2021 on organizations of all types and sizes.
The act of prediction, itself, is the application of probability to determine what might happen. For example, if a person takes an action once, you might expect them to do it again. However, if that action caused a poor or negative result, you’d most likely expect the person not to do it again. Now, let’s make it more complex. Say that the person has taken the action in some situations, but not in others. By analyzing the details of each situation, determining the differences and factors in each one, you could begin to predict the likelihood of the person’s actions in a given context. Thus, to make a reasonable prediction for the future, you must have clear insight into past events, complete with context.
