Technology moves swiftly. Nowhere is that more accurate than in the current state of machine learning. A lack of awareness of security issues in the C-Suite and among employees is part of the problem, but the major cause is the enormous complexity of modern infrastructure deployments and the data generated by corporate and government networks. Finding security breaches is incredibly difficult. Online criminals want to remain hidden — if they’re discovered, it’s game over. They invest significant resources into hiding their presence, but it’s impossible for them to hide completely. There…

Technology is evolving faster than the legal and moral frameworks needed to manage it. With the development of IoT, malwares have been used to disrupt internet access around the globe. Right now, in this early stage of connected devices’ slow invasion into our daily lives, there’s no clear answer to that question. That’s because there’s no real legal framework that would hold manufacturers responsible for critical failures that harm others. As is often the case, the technology has developed far faster than policies and regulations. But it’s not just the…
