In traversing the Internet, I have come across many software vendors touting they are using AI in their products. I ask myself, when did this happen?…

False Negatives and Positives – Two Ways, and I Can Bet Which One You Will Pick

I will say right up front that I could never even attempt a manual approach to manipulate the number of false positives or negatives – not possible. Hopefully, you never have to attempt it.…

Data Discovery and Classification - Think Like a Cybercriminal

Data Breaches

Where Is the Disconnect? Data Breach? Pocket Change. Victims? Who Cares?

I am continually surprised that US companies have a devil-may-care attitude towards a data breach. New legislation protects all financial companies from having to admit to a data breach, ever, or notifying victims that their personal information was stolen.…
