How Automation and AI Improve Healthcare Cybersecurity

When it comes to protecting patient information and proprietary medical research, the healthcare industry faces significant cybersecurity challenges every day. The adoption of new medical technology—including electronic health records (EHRs), online patient portals, connected devices and wearables—offers improved patient care and convenience. However, it also creates greater opportunity for attack. Of all the industries affected by advances in cybercrime techniques, healthcare providers continue to be at high risk. That’s because...

Executive Insights: Stopping Threats Starts with Getting Back to the Basics

The majority of these breaches have one thing in common. IT teams are failing to practice basic security hygiene. Cybercriminals target known vulnerabilities because they know that most organizations will have failed to patch or replace their vulnerable devices. WannaCry targeted a vulnerability for which a patch had been available for months. Shame on them. But Petya followed a month later and targeted the exact same vulnerability. And millions of devices were still affected. So, shame on us.

Understanding the Explosion of IoT and Its Impact

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us, with the digital transformation of business largely consisting of automation, AI, and rapid technological innovation. Industrial processes and machines are becoming smarter and more modular. A critical enabler of this transformation is the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart, always-connected devices provide real-time contextual information with low overhead to optimize processes and improve how companies and individuals interact, work, and live. Over a million new IoT devices are connected to the Internet...

Integrating Artificial Intelligence into Cybersecurity: AI and Transparency Level the Playing Field

In our last post we talked about some of the AI tools (AEE, AutoCPRL, etc.) that Fortinet has developed, and how the specialist teams at FortiGuard Labs around the world collaborate to detect, mitigate, and prevent threats of all shapes and sizes. But all of that happens in the background. How do these innovations and techniques translate into actionable tactics and strategies that decision-makers and CISOs can employ toda, to protect their IP, data, and networks from an increasing number of bad actors and adversaries? The key to cyber security...

Integrating Artificial Intelligence into Cybersecurity: Protecting IP, Data, and Networks with AI

In recent years we have seen a surge in the way companies have leveraged technology to drive new revenue streams and create a unique competitive advantage in the marketplace. The companies that have been the most successful are the ones using Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI is already being used by hundreds of companies all over the world. We have seen retailers being able to predict what their customers will order based on their previous order history, automobile manufactures using car data to provide a better driving experience, and even locally...

For Cybercrime, Innovation is the Land of Opportunity

The first day here at Black Hat is over. On the expo floor, a number of vendors are promoting that they now provide critical threat intelligence along with the other technologies they provide. Of course, in general, this is a good thing. The biggest challenge organizations have historically faced has been a lack of visibility into their networks, especially cloud and virtualized environments. The challenge, however, is how are organizations supposed to consume, correlate, and make use of all of this information? Dozens of intelligence feeds from...

Thoughts from Black Hat on Threat Intelligence and Automation

The biggest trend in security today seems to be information sharing. Everyone agrees that sharing threat intelligence is key to detecting and stopping attacks. The challenge isn’t that there aren’t enough sources for threat intelligence, but that there is simply too much information being generated, and that includes far too much redundancy. What we need an ecosystem to vet and process the information first – an information exchange and clearing house – like the cyber threat alliance (CTA) that Fortinet helped establish back...

Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Robot?

Tired of hearing about IoT? Me too. I am also tired of AI and the constant specter of intelligent robots and computers that are smarter than us, and that for some reason want to harm us. I prefer the movie Her because I believe that is more likely to represent the future of an AI. They wouldn’t want to compete with us and rule the world. Instead, it seems more likely that they would find us to be a curiosity. And they would probably eventually just lose interest in us and leave. We (and the Earth) would not be able to evolve as fast...
