The introduction of cloud, IoT and digital transformation is increasing the attack vector. Security professionals need to expand the security coverage to protect hybrid cloud, SaaS and now Microservices and Function as a Service. The attackers are getting empowered by advancement in technologies like Artificial Intelligence and machine learning to automate the repetitive task like scanning targets and keep them free to plan subtle targeted attacks which are more successful or designing attacks that can impact at a large scale, we witnessed the WannaCry attack in 2017 Continue reading “Impact of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning on Cyber-security Career”
The year 2017 has been dominated by the worst cyber-attacks and high profile data breaches. Just to give an example,
Consumer credit score company Equifax has revealed that hackers accessed up to 143 million customer account details earlier this year. The data breach happened on July 29 and the details taken include names, social security numbers, drivers’ licenses, and credit card numbers of around 200,000 people Continue reading “The Rise of Next Generation Security Operation Center (NG-SOC)”
When we go through the pages of history, we can easily make out, the economic activities have a substantial risk, and management of these risks is essentially safeguarding the impact on the society and human life. In this era of digitization, businesses have relied more and more on the digital information. Protecting digital information from the risk of compromise, accidental exposure and/or intentional damage has become the prime responsibility of businesses.

Security threats are growing in volumes and sophistication. Despite the implementation of best of breed detective and preventive controls from edge to endpoints, attackers can get into the organization’s network to steal information or hold organizations data hostage for ransom. Like latest ransomware attack impacted over 200 countries.
In this age of IoT, BYOD and social networking – monitoring, analyzing and identifying the subtle signs of the security breaches are like finding a needle in a haystack at dark night. A scarcity of trained security resources makes the problem more difficult. Continue reading “Key Benefits of Cognitive Security”
The cybersecurity attacks are evolved from wild predator-prey chase to well-designed targeted attacks which are creating significant financial and reputational damages to businesses and government.
Identification of these attacks is becoming very difficult for the cybersecurity defense teams as the signs of these attacks are very subtle. Hacker are using disruptive technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to plan and launch these attacks.
