As you progress from development to QA and then production (moving right), there is more underlying thinking about end-to-end security.

A Brief History Of Machine Learning In Cybersecurity

As the volume of cyberattacks grows, security analysts have become overwhelmed. To address this issue, developers are showing more interest in using machine learning (ML) to automate threat-hunting. Today, ML is showing increasing promise with the advent of Big Data because the quality of information from which ML can learn is improving. However, there is much more to be done.

Without two-way communications, the communications feel dictatorial and not team-oriented. While some don’t care or want to understand the big picture, team members want to know they make a difference.

With attacks increasing in sophistication, MDR is timely.
