Is cybersecurity AI is mostly hype?

According to some federal IT leaders, artificial intelligence applications in cybersecurity could use a little more substance. “I would say the marketing hype is at a 10, and delivery is at a 1,” Ryan Cote, CIO at the Department of Transportation, said yesterday during a panel at the Security Transformation Summit. “I think we’re in the early, early stages of applying real AI to cyber.” U.S. Air Force Chief Information Technology Officer Frank Konieczny said his service is definitely interested in AI and has explored robotic process automation, "but when you get to a cybersecurity thing it’s much more complex than that." Tajha Chappellet-Lanier has more from the summit.

2020: The year of pilots for DOJ

Also from the Security Transformation Summit, it looks like the Department of Justice's cybersecurity work will have a heavy emphasis in 2020 on zero-trust technology and other forms of identity and access management. The department now has eight to 10 pilots experimenting with different zero-trust architectures and vendors, Nickolous Ward, chief information security officer of DOJ, told FedScoop at the summit. On top of that, DOJ will use identity and access management pilots to ensure the identity of every person connecting to every piece of data. Dave Nyczepir spoke with the CISO.

Biometric Exit could get even more controversial

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is thinking about expanding the scope of its Biometric Exit facial recognition program to include U.S. citizens. To date, U.S. citizens have been able to opt-out of inclusion in the program — signs placed near the checkpoints alert travelers to this option — and deletes anything it captures within 12 hours. But the new rule would represent a marked expansion of the system as it currently exists, as suggested in a recently posted notice from the Department of Homeland Security. The department is saying that including citizens in the pool will help CBP achieve “seamless” implementation of the system. Tajha takes you inside the potential expansion.
