Security Service Edge (SSE) converges multiple cybersecurity capabilities within a single, cloud-native software stack, and is designed to protect all enterprise edges – sites, users and applications, including the IoT-connected points — even as the contours of those edges shift.
Cybercriminals know that a network, application process, or security control will function similarly and feature the same arrangements of hackable assets in every environment they encounter. To flip this script, security teams need to make IT environments hostile to threat actors and turn static environments into dynamic ones.
It’s clear that the introduction of generative AI to the mainstream is tipping the scales towards a war of algorithms against algorithms, machines fighting machines. For cyber security, the time to introduce AI into the toolkits of defenders is now.
A proposed cyber defense bill would authorize the U.S. Department of Defense to ramp up training and direct cooperation on Taiwan’s defensive measures, as millions of Chinese cyber attacks pour in each month.
Defending organizations utilize AI-powered email security measures to enhance network protection, detect advanced malware and ransomware, optimize critical data center processes, improve threat response times, and reduce human error. Unfortunately, threat actors have also identified the benefits of AI technology.
While cyber defense efforts like those backed by DoE are clearly a net positive for the nation, the prospective contributions of these and other efforts must be tempered by both practical assessment of the strategic context of foreign critical infrastructure attacks.
Organizations and their employees can mount a formidable cyber defense against cyber attacks by having an incident response plan in place, educating employees on cyber-safety practices, and integrating zero-trust with existing security models.
With heavy interference by law enforcement, there has been an anticipated shift from critical infrastructure cyberattacks to corporate enterprise companies. The enterprise attack surface, which is the sum of all entry and exit points, is massive.
The White House said that there is "no certainty" that there will be a cyber attack from Russia, but that the country is exploring options to target US critical infrastructure and that companies should harden cyber defenses.
New national security memorandum from the Biden administration looks to provide the active cyber defenses of the US with a boost. The move brings crucial federal systems in line with the tougher cyber standards applied to civilian systems.
