The application of artificial intelligence (AI) to cybersecurity is a game-changer for protecting modern enterprises and their digital assets. AI-native cybersecurity enables organizations to use the strengths of modern, cloud-native data platforms and cutting-edge AI to analyze vast datasets, identify patterns, and strengthen their security posture. Beyond enabling faster threat response, AI is helping enterprises predict and prevent potential cyber threats, allowing security teams to operate proactively and stay ahead of increasingly sophisticated attacks.
In this post, we’ll look at specific ways that AI is transforming cybersecurity. We’ll cover some key areas where AI-native capabilities are enhancing cybersecurity, such as threat detection, behavioral analysis, and endpoint protection. Then, we’ll highlight how platforms like CrowdStrike Falcon® are using AI to offer advanced cybersecurity solutions.
Let’s start by considering our first key area: threat detection. Read more
The Department of Defense published a much-anticipated Proposed Rule at the end of last year for its Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program. The proposed rule is our first comprehensive look at the latest iteration of the CMMC program (referred to as CMMC 2.0), which will become effective once final changes are made to DoD regulations for contractors. The program attempts to streamline the various DoD cybersecurity requirements and provide greater flexibility in the certification process. Read moreIt’s now 2024, and after seeing some of the most brazen ransomware attacks ever and increasingly bold cyberattacks on the federal government by nation-state adversaries over the past few years, cybersecurity in computer science education remains an elective. Indeed, that list of the top 24 universities in computer science hasn’t changed: 23 still don’t require cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is viewed as a subdiscipline, much like graphics or human-computer interaction – not essential knowledge that every future software developer should be equipped with as they enter the workforce. This is unacceptable. All too often, attacks exploit simple weaknesses that any developer with basic security knowledge could have stopped. Read more
