Turns out security isn’t the only topic vendors are making predictions about for 2018. Here are a few prognostications on cloud computing, IT automation, and artificial intelligence as well. Plus a few more on security, because who can resist?
IT professionals won’t be the only people capitalizing on the power of artificial intelligence in 2018. According to Kris Lovejoy, CEO of network intrusion detection vendor BluVector, hackers will utilize it to find exploitable security vulnerabilities more easily.
“Adversaries will start adopting artificial intelligence to better enable their attacks faster than cyber defenders, adding more insult to injury,” she says. “It’s a repeat of the classic cat and mouse game. The criminal cats of 2017 will only get fatter in 2018 without better defenses.”
Even businesses with machine learning tools of their own won’t be immune.
“Threat actors will increase their adoption of Adversarial Machine Learning to evade detection by infrequently trained machine learning models,” predicts Adam Hunt, chief data scientist at threat management solution provider RiskIQ. “Machine learning models will need to evolve quickly to keep up with these threats by incorporating instance-based approaches.”
