As our digital lives get more automated, integrated and connected, the security risks increase as well; 2018 was full of hacks and privacy scandals, ranging from healthcare breaches to blunders by Facebook and Google.
Cybersecurity is more important than ever, and many experts are using AI to take that security to the next level. For CIOs, the critical questions are: How much security can AI provide, and what should the realistic expectations of AI cybersecurity be?

In November 2014, Sony Pictures suffered a massive, high-profile data breach, with hackers breaking in and stealing everything from confidential employee data to unreleased films. And not long after, on a Saturday morning, Ray Rothrock’s cell phone rings. Rothrock (MBA 1988) is the CEO of the cybersecurity firm Red Seal, and a higher-up at Sony was looking for his help. After the breach, he told Rothrock, the company essentially hit factory reset on their entire network. The phones were down. They were doing payroll by handwritten checks. They had burned it all down. And now they needed someone to help them rebuild it.

The cybersecurity industry is not generally known for the quality of its metrics. In a field where the absence of something happening is the best possible result, it’s been hard to find a meaningful way to communicate how prepared an organization is to withstand a cyber attack, or even to tell if a cyber team is getting better at what it does.

Ground-shaking earthquakes might topple buildings and displace communities, but they also bear some resemblance to the scale of cyber incidents witnessed in the past year that crippled networks and exposed consumer data, according to one cyber expert.

Cybersecurity experts often like to tell the federal government what it needs to be doing better to deliver on the mission. But how often do they listen to federal government cyber teams to find out what their principal challenges are? And, moreover, how often is that insight collated, analyzed, and shared across civilian and military agencies?
As consumers, we’re thinking about data breaches all wrong. We ask how something like this can happen. We are shocked when 383 million people, more than the population of the United States, are potentially affected by digital evil-doers. We think nothing will happen to us. And we continue on our merry way. Wrong, wrong, wrong, and especially wrong, experts say.

As anyone who works in any government IT field can tell you one of the greatest frustrations they face is integrating their many products. Regardless of whether an agency has begun its migration to the cloud or is just operating data centers, silos undermine the potential of technology and can even compromise an agency’s ability to meet its mission.

In a recent conversation on the topic of cybersecurity, Ray Rothrock – CEO of cybersecurity firm RedSeal, and author of the 2018 book Digital Resilience – offered some interesting and sobering insights on the state of the cyber world and utilities. He commented that hackers are already likely sitting in various U.S. utility systems and reconnoitering, in what the Department of Homeland Security calls an Advanced Persistent Threat mode. The critical question, then, is what to do about that fact, and how to create resilient responses.

“Facebook rose to success at a time when most people made clear how little they cared about privacy – we would post anything, and we enjoyed the freedom and the sense of connection,” said Dr. Mike Lloyd, who is the CTO of RedSeal. “Unfortunately, like a vine growing up a building, Facebook has spent years attaching itself to the way people used to behave. Its business model depends on people remaining incautious, and insensitive to privacy issues. But people are changing as we encounter more of the downsides of social networks. We are getting more suspicious and less trusting.”

Threats are constantly evolving and, just like everything else, tend to follow certain trends. Whenever a new type of threat is especially successful or profitable, many others of the same type will inevitably follow. The best defenses need to mirror those trends so users get the most robust protection against the newest wave of threats. Along those lines, Gartner has identified the most important categories in cybersecurity technology for the immediate future.
