Cyber AI

Generally, cybersecurity is a human resource-constrained industry, where there are vast opportunities for artificial intelligence (AI) mechanization. In recent times, AI is used for most defensive sections of cybersecurity. This method is fast spreading and has proved to be very useful and well secured. Aiding to fight spam and detecting malware is part of its functions.

According to the recent analytics carried out by experts, there are several benefits to gain from the implementation of AI cybersecurity. Several giant and small organizations cannot depend only on human knowledge to combat the upsurge of cyber attacks by hackers. For this reason, they tend to invest more time on cybersecurity and try to stay updated with the fast-evolving technologies.

Cyber AI helps to maximize time and upshoot productivity and at the same time, creates various methods to combat cyber attacks. Most importantly, human supervision is needed to monitor the program. However, here are some vital key roles or value of implementing cyber AI -

  • It helps to detect application security vulnerabilities
  • Drastically cuts down overhead cost
  • Boost productivity
  • Prevent data breaches
  • Offers tight security
  • It supports authentication and identification technologies
  • It captures actionable intelligence
  • Helps in strategizing cyber approaches
  • Fast investigation of actionable intelligence
  • Helps to correct and maintain networks, devices and applications.
  • All these and many others are the numerous values of AI cybersecurity.

Most security companies are depending on the values that AI could help bring to the security mechanism for different commerce. AI will help to simplify the complexity of the procedure for reacting to cyber attacks when detected. One of the main challenges is being able to provide substantial results in these procedures, which include detection, analysis and expectation of attacks, to be ready or proactive. Using human knowledge, which is the regular computing requires an individual to be equipped with some understanding of attack characteristics, but machine learning (MI) is equipped with various technological resources that can aid to discover, learn and develop oneself to detect and combat cyber attacks.

The combination of automation, machine learning and AI is the best usage of human effort and technology to fight cyber attacks and build a formidable cyber defence. Leveraging on the power of AI means that the strategies and mechanisms with which is used to combat security issues must be re-examined.

Hackers across the globe are taking advantage of network, software and infrastructural fragilities to penetrate. AI-based security mechanisms are being used to detect these fragilities and fix them instantly. Besides, these mechanisms are built to defend any incoming attacks that might be caused by a breach in a targeted system.

In conclusion, when utilizing AI for defence, it should be known that hackers are also aware of it. So, there is a need to keep track of AI development and its application to be able to get updated and can easily detect any malicious activities. In a bid to achieve this, there should be a collaboration between the industry professionals, researchers and policymakers. There should be an inclusion of a legislator to account for the use of AI and update the term “hacking”. Researchers should try their best to consider any malicious application of their work. Attention should also be given to the vulnerability management program. On a final note, there should be an awareness program for all users to avert social cyber-attacks, discourage the use of the same password and getting used to the two-factor-authentication where necessary.
