You might think, “What is this guy talking about?”, hold your thoughts people, let me explain.

Let’s do the famous divide and conquer algorithm to this.

Cyber Security is protecting your digital belongings from the bad guys, if you want a formal definition of Cybersecurity, just Google it...

Chess is a 2-player board game with a set of pieces of a different color. It has a lot of variants, but we can consider Standard Chess for this case. The goal of the game is to checkmate the king. Now, in this case, we as a Cyber Security company are the good guys and the cybercriminals are the bad guys. So, we have to always be active and updated to protect our clients. The blackhat/gray hat hackers always try to come up with new techniques to hack the system and exploit it for their gain. This can have terrible consequences for both the company and our clients. We should not let that happen as it is totally against our core principles. We as a company always try to make a positive impact on society. We want to grow with you. ...

Cyber Security 101


Would you be comfortable living in a house that someone else had the key to? What if an underground tunnel led into it from a public park, or its windows could never quite close all the way? Would you trust it with your safety and your privacy?The internet is that house.

This is not to say—never go into the house, but rather, you should know the hazards before you store all of your valuables there—and do what you can to protect them. So why is it insecure, and why can’t we just fortify it until it’s safe?

Well, first of all, the internet was not originally built to be what it is today. It’s like someone decided to expand a shoebox into a skyscraper. The internet originally developed when computers were huge and so expensive to own that only universities, big businesses, and a few governments had them. The point, originally, was to let these massive supercomputers talk to each other. And as soon as two computers could send information back and forth, we had a network. The network gradually grew, until personal computers emerged in the 1980s, and then it exploded....

What is AI?


Picture this a machine that could organize your cupboard just as you like it or serve every member of the house a customized cup of coffee. Makes your day easier doesn't it? These are the products of artificial intelligence.

But why use the term artificial intelligence well these machines are artificially incorporated with human-like intelligence to perform tasks as we do. This intelligence is built using complex algorithms and mathematical functions. But AI may not be as obvious as in the previous examples. In fact AI is used in smartphones, cars, social media feeds, video games, banking, surveillance and many other aspects of our daily life.
The real question is what does an AI do at its core?

Consider a robot built in a lab which is dropped onto a field. In spite of a variation in lighting, landscape and dimensions of the field, the AI robot must perform as expected. This ability to react appropriately to a new situation is called generalized learning. If the robot is now at a crossroad, one that is paved and another, that is rocky. The robot must determine which path to take based on the circumstances. This portrays it's reasoning ability. After a short stroll, the robot now encounters a stream that it cannot swim across. If a plank is provided as an input the robot is able to cross this stream. Therefore, the robot uses the given input and finds the solution for a problem. This is problem solving....
