Four Cyber Security Resolutions to Adopt in the New Year

2021 proved to be a tough year for cyber security. After a slew of ransomware attacks forced a number of companies to dole out millions of dollars, a major vulnerability has been discovered in “Log4j,” the software behind a number of popular software applications. Unlike previous attacks that primarily targeted organizations, the Log4j vulnerability poses […]

New Method Could Help Machine Learning Models Make Better Decisions 

Machine learning models often rely on the simple features of a dataset to make decisions. Known as “shortcuts,” these types of decisions can lead to serious errors. For example, these shortcuts can cause models to make inaccurate medical diagnoses. However, a recent study from MIT poses a possible solution. By removing the simple characteristics of […]

Four Reasons Machine Learning Models Fail and How to Fix Them

Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) in which algorithms are trained to get better at solving problems on their own, similar to the functionality of a human brain. While organizations are rapidly adapting machine learning to enhance their business operations, many are failing to build machine learning models that work.  Why do […]

Four Ways to Build MLOps that Avoid “Data Drift” in Machine Learning

Organizations are increasingly adopting machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence that allows software applications to get better at predicting outcomes on their own. While these models can help businesses make better decisions, they have a major weakness. Once the data that support machine learning models become outdated, so too do the models—a problem known […]

IBM Report: Cost of Data Breaches Soars to All-Time High During Pandemic

Data breaches currently cost businesses an average of $4.24 million USD, according to IBM’s recently published “Cost Of Data Breach Report”—the highest recorded in the report’s 17-year history. These costs include lost business, regulatory fines, and the price of clearing hackers out of networks. Many of these attacks come in the form of ransomware, in […]

What Evolving Data Privacy Laws Mean for Organizations

The U.S. state of Colorado has joined California, Virginia, the European Union, and Brazil in passing data privacy legislation. These laws give users greater control over their data and empower them to hold organizations that violate the rules responsible. The Colorado Privacy Act (CPA), scheduled to go into effect on 1 July 2023, “provides consumers […]
