Cisco took its first major step toward realizing its secure cloud vision in April with the debut of a new extended detection and response platform. The next set of enhancements around generative AI, secure access and defending applications across multiple clouds debuted Tuesday at Cisco Live 2023.
In this episode of "Cybersecurity Insights," Chen Burshan and Amir Shachar of Skyhawk Security discuss how they integrated generative AI into their threat detection process and significantly increased the speed and lowered the costs of detecting breaches based by focusing on anomalous activity.
Expel, CrowdStrike and Red Canary held steady atop Forrester's MDR rankings, while Secureworks and Binary Defense tumbled from the leaders category. Providers have turned their attention from maximizing their efficacy at detecting ransomware to finding faster and better ways to respond to attacks.
Toyota on Friday disclosed that it exposed online for a decade car location data belonging to more than two million Japanese customers. The data by itself cannot be used to identify individual car owners, the carmaker said. Also exposed: video taken outside the vehicle with an onboard recorder.
The purchase of promising early-stage startup Laminar by a large tech vendor would match many M&A deals seen in 2023.

As the cyberthreat and regulatory landscapes are evolving, so too are the data security and privacy priorities of healthcare sector entities, said Taylor Lehmann, director, Office of the CISO, Google Cloud, who explains how organizations can respond to the challenges.
Network segmentation and microsegmentation are ways to contain cyberattacks and prevent lateral spreading. Within the cloud, network segmentation ties into zero trust. Yet the diversity of information systems with different levels of criticality poses a challenge to implementing zero trust.
