Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., announced today the winners of the 13th edition of Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (QIF) Europe program: Patrick Jattke (ETH Zurich), Stratis Markou (University of Cambridge), Francisco Vargas (University of Cambridge), and Dingfan Chen (CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security). QIF is an annual program that focuses on recognizing, rewarding, and mentoring the most …

Researchers are pushing to outpace hackers and develop stronger protections that keep data safe from malicious agents who would steal information by eavesdropping on smart devices. Much of the work done to prevent these “side-channel attacks” has focused on the vulnerability of digital processors. For instance, hackers can measure the electric current drawn by a …

Malicious agents can use machine learning to launch powerful attacks that steal information in ways that are tough to prevent and often even more difficult to study. Attackers can capture data that “leaks” between software programs running on the same computer. They then use machine-learning algorithms to decode those signals, which enables them to obtain …

If you’ve ever used only your voice to authenticate a payment, place an order, or check an account over the phone, there is a good chance that Pindrop’s technology made it possible. Founded in Atlanta in 2011, Pindrop provides software and technology that uses machine learning, voice recognition, and behavioral analytics to help detect and prevent fraud …

Darktrace, a global leader in cyber security AI, today announced that a leading laboratory specializing in in vitro diagnostics successfully stopped an insider threat with the help of Darktrace’s Self-Learning AI. The company, which has laboratories, offices and distribution centres in over 100 countries worldwide and more than 3,000 employees, specializes in the research, development …

Multiple programs running on the same computer may not be able to directly access each other’s hidden information, but because they share the same memory hardware, their secrets could be stolen by a malicious program through a “memory timing side-channel attack.” This malicious program notices delays when it tries to access a computer’s memory, because …

There was no shortage of cybersecurity headlines in 2021. From REvil’s attacks, disappearance and resurgence to a brewing “cyber cold war” sweeping the world, 2021 was one of the most hectic years yet for the cybersecurity industry. And 2022 looks like it is going to be just as challenging, if not more so. A complex mix of people-centric training …

Darktrace, a global leader in cyber security AI, today reported that its security researchers discovered a 30% increase in the average number of attempted ransomware attacks globally over the holiday season in every consecutive year from 2018 to 2020 compared to the monthly average. The researchers also observed a 70% average increase in attempted ransomware …

Driven by internal and external рrеѕѕurеѕ to continuously еvоlvе and mаturе their cybersecurity practices, оrgаnіzаtіоnѕ аrе actively еxрlоrіng new tесhnоlоgіеѕ and opportunities whеrеvеr роѕѕіblе. Artіfісіаl іntеllіgеnсе (AI) іѕ a hоt topic in thе boardroom аnd аt the wаtеrсооlеr, sparking innovation іn mаnу business areas. Examples of AI include mасhіnе learning, nаturаl lаnguаgе processing, speech rесоgnіtіоn, …

Machine learning is famous for its ability to analyze large data sets and identify patterns. It is basically a subset of artificial intelligence. Machine learning uses algorithms that leverages previous data-sets and statistical analysis to make assumptions and pass on judgments about behavior. The best part, software or computers powered by machine learning algorithms can …
