  1. Artificial intelligence (AI) is dead, long live artificial intelligence – AI is an overused term and hard to achieve; the early stages of AI are mostly machine learning and a long way from nirvana. Information security leverages machine learning to detect and understand complex patterns of machine-2-machine (m2m) and machine-2-human (m2h) interaction. Machine learning outputs will be fed to decision support solutions, driving automated outcomes via complex workflow engines. Before this vision can be realized, full integration of security operations automation is needed. Right now the market remains fragmented and solves for specific problems; the vision is to create solutions that address security’s complexity while integrated with the many facets of business operations. Before making the move to “AI”, it’s important to get your own house in order:
