Cyber Beat Live: Can cognitive computing help stop cyber criminals before they attack?
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. According to Robert L. Capers, US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, cyber criminals roam the Internet for information they can steal. Their actions have the impact of eroding our confidence in the Internet. The prevalence of cyber crime today calls into question whether analytics and cognitive computing can deter cyber criminals? Tyler Carbone, Shahid Shah and Morgan Wright discussed this question recently in a Cyber Beat Live episode held at IBM Insight at Word of Watson in October 2016.
