Cyber crime is no longer a mere nuisance but is quickly becoming a huge problem. Just recently, a cyber criminal was charged with wire fraud and computer fraud as he tried to steal more than $1.5 million. Cyber criminals are becoming increasingly more brazen as they exploit vulnerabilities in new technologies. Robert L. Capers, US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York was quoted in a recent US Department of Justice (DOJ) release to say that cyber criminals routinely peruse the Internet for information that can help them commit theft that potentially undermines the integrity of the Internet for everyone. With cyber crime more prevalent today, the question is can analytics and cognitive computing deter cyber criminals? Cybersecurity experts Tyler Carbone, Shahid Shah and Morgan Wright discussed in a recent episode of Cyber Beat Live.
