Paulius Petretis, leading cyber security expert reveals that IBM’s Watson for Cyber Security is now available in Europe and explains how this new platform can thwart the efforts of the most sophisticated cyber criminals.
Vilnius, Lithuania – January 10, 2017 – Paulius Petretis, CEO of VORAS Consulting posted a new blog on the company website entitled “Let IBM Watson Be Your Company’s Cyber Security Expert” in which Mr. Petretis reviews the Watson AI platform for cyber security.
Petretis writes, “Cyber-security is on every company’s top priority list. And, it’s no wonder with threats and attacks coming from every conceivable direction and some that are inconceivable.” He continues adding, “Some organizations are seeing more than 200,000 security events on a daily basis. The threat to data is overwhelming even the most skilled professionals.”
According to Petretis, “IBM has recently introduced Watson for cyber security technology.” He adds, “According to Security Intelligence, “This new platform embeds Watson for Cyber Security’s unique ability to understand, reason and learn about security topics and threats. By tapping into and making sense of structured and unstructured security knowledge that has previously been elusive to an organization’s SOC (including imprecise human language contained in blogs, articles, reports), it augments a security analyst’s ability to fill gaps in intelligence, speed and accuracy.” (https://securityintelligence.com/bringing-the-power-of-watson-and-cognitive-into-the-security-operations-center/?cm_mc_uid=89932190689814872709458&cm_mc_sid_50200000=1487270945)

According to the annual survey initiated by the Info Security Europe, a whopping 93% of large organizations and 76% of small businesses had at least a single information security breach in 2011. Only 18% of the organizations affected by the infringements related to data protection laws had a consistent and effective contingency plan in place. According to Paulius, information is not something static – it evolves and mutates every day. It is the ecosystem of every business and if a single cell fails, it can bring down the entire business.
Therefore ensuring a consistent and up-to-date information protection policy must be the priority for all businesses – no matter how big or small they are. As it might be unrealistic to believe that any young or experienced entrepreneur can be the jack of all trades, the really smart decision is to rely on specialists who dedicate their professional lives to getting to know everything there is to know about protecting important business information.
With more than 16 years of experience in helping people, small businesses, and government organizations to protect their business secrets, Paulius believes that information security must help businesses achieve goals but not vice versa.
