Businesses lack the capability to keep up with vulnerabilities and the staff to improve their defenses, while attacks are increasing and no dataset is too small to invite intrusion.
Because vulnerabilities are going unpatched, corporate defenses need to be stronger than ever. But stronger defenses require more personnel, and that additional personnel needs to be highly trained in a competitive and fast-moving industry where problems arise more rapidly than their solutions.
This means more security tools based on machine learning and AI. Rather than replacing personnel, security tools must work in concert with them, to provide insight where humans can’t easily see, and let personnel focus on their best and most productive tasks.
