As technology continues to advance, managing and analyzing massive data sets just can’t be accomplished by humans alone. It requires huge amounts of memory and storage, as well as the high-speed processing power of the cloud. Machine learning is a process that applies advanced mathematical algorithms and powerful computing capabilities to quickly and efficiently analyze those data sets and identify patterns.
A year ago, we accurately predicted cybersecurity threats that have since been realized, from attacks that targeted the presidential election to the continued onslaught of ransomware. Awareness of cyber threats may be at an all-time high, but attacks are still both prevalent and successful. Nonetheless, for the first time ever, we witnessed a minor year-over-year decrease in the volume of malware. In part, the decline can be attributed to the increased security awareness mentioned, but it also reflects changes in cybercriminal tactics.

Two years ago, SWAT Systems had had enough of its antivirus software. At the time, the Seattle-based MSP had tried a succession of antivirus products, and not one of them had worked as well as they needed. “The products were not a good fit for us,” recalls David Blake, Chief Technology Officer at SWAT. “Clients’ machines were still getting infected and the products were too resource intensive.”
“Who would ever fall for that?” That’s what many people think when they see a phishing attempt, since less advanced types of phishing often involve laughable requests with terrible grammar and spelling to lure victims. Most of these are sent to a large number of recipients in hopes that a few will respond, as even the smallest margin of return is a success. However, the majority of today’s phishing attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, carefully crafted to obtain sensitive information from specific organizations, or even a particular person.
