Check Point Software Technologies partners Singapore Polytechnic to strengthen cybersecurity skills

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., a global provider of cybersecurity solutions, today announced that it will provide a comprehensive cybersecurity curriculum to Singapore Polytechnic as part of the Check Point SecureAcademy education program worldwide.As Singapore continues to transform the nation through technology, having secure, trusted and resilient cybersecurity nation-wide is the quintessential vision. Cyber threats and crimes are becoming more sophisticated, while organizations are warming up to a healthy awareness for the need for cybersecurity capabilities. Against the polarity of cyber threats and cybersecurity expertise, Singapore is set to face a potential shortage of up to 3,400 cyber-security professionals by 2020. Globally, an estimated 3.5 million unfilled positions will be expected by 2021.From classroom to careerIn an effort to address the massive shortfall in cyber security professionals worldwide, the Check Point SecureAcademy program is designed to advance students from classroom to career.The program aims to arm students with the ability to recognize and resolve IT security threats, develop hands-on experience with security solutions and acquire employable real-world skills to protect networks. Upon completion of the course, students will earn a globally recognized credential in cybersecurity with an industry-recognized certification assuring expertise in the field anywhere in the world. Students who pass the certification exam upon completion will be extended an interview opportunity for employment at Check Point global offices or its network of more than 5000 affiliates.“The cyber security industry is plagued by a talent gap in which there are significantly more jobs to fill than there are qualified candidates,” noted Shay Solomon, director for cybersecurity education services, Check Point Software Technologies. “Our mission is to bridge that gap by creating more opportunities for formal learning and professional development in which students walk away with not just a deeper understanding of industry-leading solutions, but also a tangible path to employment.” Caption: Image from iStockPhoto/TethysImagingLLC

ICICI Lombard partners Microsoft, for AI-enabled auto insurance

ICICI Lombard has partnered with Microsoft to develop India’s first AI-enabled car inspection feature in its mobile app, “Insure.” The app allows customers to buy or renew policies anytime, anywhere, and will soon also simplify the process of making a repair claim.In case of lapsed policy instead of a physical inspection, customers can simply take images of their vehicle and upload them with Insure. The app then uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to divide the images into frames and identify the various parts of the car to look for damage. In most cases the AI module can make a judgement very quickly, reducing the time taken for an assessment from days to mere minutes.“We had been envisioning something like this for a long period of time,” says Girish Nayak, Chief Customer Service, Operations & Technology, for ICICI Lombard. “We were not really successful working with some start-ups. Therefore, we approached Microsoft to see if we could do this together.”The two companies started collaborating where software engineers from both companies met and worked on a prototype.“The prototype gave us confidence that something like this is possible,” said Nayak.Using the Azure platform, computer vision, and machine learning (ML) technologies, they refined the process until the accuracy was fit for purpose.The feature was launched in December of 2018. Nayak said, “real time renewals of expired policies makes the customer experience consistent and convenient.”Expanding AI in auto insuranceRenewing policies online has proven to be successful — the company is currently processing between 150 to 200 cars per day — but as Nayak pointed out, using AI for renewals is just a “stepping stone” for the company. AI is a major thrust for the company, and they are very near to using AI to process repair claims as well. The solution is currently in beta stage and is expected to be launched in 2019.When a customer’s vehicle is damaged in an accident, they must surrender it to a service center so a service engineer can assess the damage and provide an estimate for repair. Then, an insurance personnel examines both the car and the estimate, and either approves, rejects or modifies individual parts of the estimate.Compare that to the new, AI-driven process; a customer will use the app to take photographs of car’s damage. Once uploaded, the system’s deep learning model and computer vision identifies in real time all the parts of the vehicle, like roof, window or bumper and then spots all the different types of damage – be it scratch, dent, crack, and so on. Most importantly, the app replies with an estimated cost quickly using historical data.With AI, the company aims to process over 80,000 simple claims every month with same-day turnaround when the module is launched towards the end of 2019.The app is also valuable to ICICI Lombard from a business perspective. Automating the process reduces the possibility of inaccurate assessments due to human error. And, increased efficiency and productivity improves the bottom line. Caption: Image from iStockPhoto
