Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are in the process of changing almost every aspect of our lives. My last post focused on how AI can be used to help businesses manage their IT environments better. This post will look at the impact ML has on security. The biggest challenge with cybersecurity is that it’s hard and getting more difficult. Despite spending billions of dollars on security tools to help fight the bad guys, businesses are actually falling behind.
