How data poisoning is used to trick fraud detection algorithms on ecommerce sites

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) systems have become the norm for using client data to provide recommendations to customers. As more people are working from home and conducting business online, it is imperative that fraud detection software is used to protect user information. But these protective systems also utilize ML to automate the process and understand when a potential attack is taking place.


Use AI to fight AI-powered cyber-attacks

Cyber-attacks are commonly viewed as one of the most severe risks to worldwide security. Cyber-attacks are not the same as they were five years back in aspects of availability and efficiency. Improved technology and more efficient offensive techniques provide the opportunity for cybercriminals to initiate attacks on a vast scale with a higher effect. Intruders employ new methods and launch more comprehensive strategies based on AI to compromise systems.


The Role of AI and ML in Preventing Cybercrime

According to a seminal Clark School study, a hacker attacks a computer with internet access every 39 seconds. What’s more, almost a third of all Americans have been harmed by a hacker at one point or another, and more than two-thirds of companies have been victims of web-based attacks.

SIEM & AI - A Match Made in Heaven?

Are Information security event management (SIEM) and artificial intelligence (AI) a marriage made in heaven or just more sales hysteria in the industry? The reality, of course, is that security and system/application event correlation systems have been around for quite a long time. The term SIEM was first promoted by analyst firm Gartner in 2005. The lingering question is, are the analytics available in SIEM products identical to AI, or is AI only rebranded for sales purposes with analytics?
