AI and Cybersecurity
Using AI for cybersecurity, companies can identify emerging threats before they’re exploited. It can also increase speed of incident response time. It can improve the context of security alerts and help find the root causes of problems.
However, the benefits of using AI in cybersecurity don’t come without their limitations. A poorly implemented AI can be used by hackers to target companies, and bad actors can take advantage of AI to gather valuable information.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a computer system that collects data from the behaviors of a device or network and analyzes the information to detect anomalies. It’s also able to detect and respond to threats from bots and malicious behavior.
While AI is an effective tool for identifying vulnerabilities, it’s also vulnerable to biases and gaps in data. The main algorithm can be static and doesn’t evolve very rapidly.
The latest innovations in cybersecurity focus on using AI to improve effectiveness and leveraging data science. These technologies are being deployed in the EU as part of recent efforts to consolidate the EU’s technological leadership and economic competitiveness.
The EU has taken regulatory steps to address the AI-cybersecurity nexus. It has established an Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) and SOCs as part of an effort to incorporate AI tools into its cybersecurity capabilities. The EU is also developing an AI-powered threat intelligence initiative called the EU Cyber Shield.
Aside from the benefits of detecting and responding to threats, AI can reduce false positives and minimize the number of false negatives. It can also assist company leaders with user journeys. It can also help identify opportunities for improvement in the company’s networks.
