How This Cybersecurity Startup Is Using Machine Learning

The COVID pandemic has massively escalated the surge of cyberattacks and data breaches despite having robust security controls, software, and solutions abundantly available in the market. A lot of this could be attributed to the vulnerability businesses offer the cybercriminals to take advantage of the situation quickly. While the conventional cybersecurity approach has benefited many, having cybersecurity without cyber-intelligence and necessary awareness can put the security professionals off-guarded to more complicated and novel threats.

Furthermore, with limited cybersecurity resources, businesses need to prioritise their efforts to strengthen cyber posture effectively; however, many organisations do not have an anchor point or a guiding principle, to begin with. With cyber-intelligence inputs missing from cybersecurity capabilities like incident management, vulnerability management, risk assessment and brand monitoring, businesses end up running their security practice in silos instead of an integrated approach.

And, thus, in an attempt to revolutionise the cyber threat visibility and intelligence market, CYFIRMA, a cyber analytics startup assists businesses to understand the relevance of the current threat landscape. Not only it provides insights on threat actors and indicators, emerging threats and digital risks, but also automatically applies intelligence into cyber posture management. To dig deeper, Analytics India Magazine got in touch with the chairman and CEO of the company, Kumar Ritesh, to understand how the company uses a predictive intelligence-driven approach to discover cyber threats.

Building My First VSCode Extension

It’s a fantastic journey of how much a person can learn when he tries to do new things. That is pretty much the same feeling I had when I started writing my first VSCode Theme extension (Flutter Light Theme). It was amazing how much control we can have on its look and feel. Below are some of the things that I found easier while developing/deploying my theme.

  • Creating the VSCode Extension ( Predefined Yeoman generator )
  • Testing your Extension
  • Updating colors
  • Publishing the extension

The Novice's Guide To Side-Hustles

I don’t know about you but in my view, work culture seems to have taken a 360- degree turn since the time I got into the workforce in 2012. For years before that, I saw people stay in the same job for years.

They often left their comfort zones and hometowns to immigrate to new cities and countries in search of that one perfect opportunity — in which they then stayed all the way till retirement. Say for my father and many other relatives who stayed in the same job for more than 20 years.

Nothing wrong with that however the times have changed since then. In recent times people have started changing jobs more frequently owing to COVID more and more people, as well as, companies are looking for gig workers and contractors.

10 VSCode Extensions To Make Your Life Easier

I’ve been using VSCode for almost 2 years now and I like it so much. I’m sure that you like it too. Extensions are a core part of VSCode that adds extra functionality to the editor. I’ve installed about +40 extensions and here is my top 10 list.

10. Bracket Pair Colorizer

This extension allows matching brackets to be identified with colors. The user can define which characters to match, and which colors to use.

9. File Utils

Creating and managing files using built-in methods can be overwhelming. This extension provides a convenient way of creating, duplicating, moving, renaming, deleting files, and directories.

8. Better Comments

The Better Comments extension will help you create more human-friendly comments in your code.

With this extension, you will be able to categorize your annotations into:

  • Alerts
  • Queries
  • TODOs
  • Highlights
  • Commented out code can also be styled to make it clear the code shouldn’t be there
  • Any other comment styles you’d like can be specified in the settings

7. WakaTime

Did you ever want to check how much time you spend on a project? Or how much time did you spend coding in a specific language? Or coding in general? Well, WakaTime has got your back! It shows Metrics, insights, and time tracking automatically generated from your programming activity.

WakaTime also has a chrome extension that tracks how much you spend browsing the web.
