RE: Avoiding 'Magpie Syndrome' In Cybersecurity
I agree with this, the technologies are great up to a point, but you need to have your processes in place to support them properly and also the staff knowledgable enough to be able to deal with the process and the technology.

Importance of Context Awareness
The issue I see with many of the anti"fill-in-the-blank" and the shiny new vendor tools is that they are siloed. Vendors make many promises about their tool, but context awareness around their tool is important as well as being able to integrate each tool into an overarching strategy. I agree with the point that vendors need to act as trusted advisors instead of going for the easy sale. Unfortunately, like the bad actors out there, vendors and security teams both follow the path of least resistance. Meaning, until either vendors, or the more likely, security teams work together to discover how a tool can fit into a seurity strategy, we will continue to see this 'Magpie Syndrome.' On top of that, we have yet to see a tool that manages vendor risk, how difficult is it to know that the best tools and a top notch strategy can be undone by a 3rd party vendor with poor security.

How Machine Learning, AI & Deep Learning Improve Cybersecurity
Machine intelligence is influencing all aspects of cybersecurity. Organizations are implementing AI-based security to analyze event data using ML models that identify attack patterns and increase automation. Before security teams can take advantage of AI and ML tools, they need to know what is possible. This report covers: -How to assess the vendor's AI/ML claims -Defining success criteria for AI/ML implementations -Challenges when implementing AI
