Cognitive Computing of AI, IoT in CyberSecurity

According to Forcepoint’s Cybersecurity Predictions Report, connected systems put critical data and intellectual property at a security risk. The report suggested that there exist seven significant areas of cybersecurity risk after examining technology trends and motivation behind cyber attacks for 2019. The report also stated that businesses can expect a number of advanced cybersecurity technologies to be introduced to the market and offer new options for protection. According to Raffael Marty, the cybersecurity industry and expand efforts in the never-ending cycle of the breach, react, and circumvent had never resulted in a positive outcome. Cybersecurity professionals and business leaders have to adapt to changes based on risks represented.

Industrial IoT disturbances can interrupt the projects. Attacks on IoT consumers can happen at any level in manufacturing, and it becomes a threat to many industries. Meltdown and Spectre have given way to attackers who can target hardware, and cloud infrastructure would be the next.

 There may be of a chance of data theft or causing errors to the project. Several cases were found in the court like the incident that happened at Tesla—publicly mentioned about the cybersecurity issues. Tesla is a driverless technology which holds the information like driving history and location in an encrypted form while others admitted they couldn’t use encryption and same with the vehicle cybersecurity—some use it, and many do not.

Counterfeit Reflection: When an attack happens, “SIM Swaps” specify the effectiveness of two-factor authentication (2FA). Biometrics is an added advantage that provides security for the data, and the end-user can be able to access. The challenges that had overcome in facial recognition made the software experts put faith in behavioral biometrics.

A Collision Course to Cyber Cold War: Trust has been lost among the world powers as businesses are leading with updating technologies. They try to buy the latest technologies which can improve productivity by providing better services. Organizations tried to hold confidential data using the latest technologies that can harm the nation by the hackers.

Drive to the edge: Consumers feel that their data is not secured leading to the organizations inventing new technologies to provide services that meet the evolving customer requirements. Edge computing offers customers with benefits like controlling of data, the trust of securing of data.

Cybersecurity Cultures That Don’t Adapt Will Fail. Introduction of security trust ratings will show how to make the partners should be independent to supply the services. Partnership without due diligence can't take place for the cybersecurity programs that ultimately lead to project failure.
