TCC Research: From Prevention to Prediction

The cyber game is rigged against defenders. With technology centre stage, an every increasing number of miscreants is lining up to bring it down. Their numbers are rising while security teams are chronically understaffed. Their rewards are riches, recognition or political advantage, while the defenders are only noticed when things go wrong. They have the advantage of surprise, while defenders are forced to react.

'Twas always thus of course. Cyber teams have never been able to keep all the bad stuff out, and much of the job is about mitigation and damage limitation. A wary balance has had to been struck. But easy to use generative AI is one of those technologies that could change the game and tip the balance. How and in whose favour is now playing out.

Based on exclusive Computing Research, John Leonard will be looking at the new automated threats, and also the tools and strategies at defender's disposal to take cyber security further down the road from prevention to prediction
