When more and more companies embrace the Internet of Things (IoT), cyberattacks have risen in frequency. Due to the increase of cybersecurity, threats still exist and is intended to keep information and devices secure.
How is artificial intelligence (AI) going to enhance cyber security, and protect data?
Cyber Security / Artificial Intelligence(AI) – Use
1. Malware Detection
Malware can also be detected by AI, an attack which is harmful to the computer. Cyber security with AI could help to expose malware before an attack occurs. Also, it can identify what kind of malware is used. This skill is important as malware can come from maladvertising to ransomware in several different ways.
2. Network Threat Analysis
As businesses become more dependent on digital services they often need to update internal networks. The wide networks need robust security resources to ensure the safety of all data stored within the network. It is a big investment for any organisation. Combined with AI, cyber security can help track the network by monitoring of both incoming and outgoing traffic. That would allow cyber crime activity and threats to be mined.
3. Improved Security Analysis
How can the analysts handle the amount of several threats coming in from various angles? The AI tools allow human analysts to handle incoming threats better. AI can give analysts more flexibility for higher-risk threats and strategic planning by automating tasks and enhancing priority-setting.
4. Threat Mitigation
As AI is developing, the complexity and frequency of cyber attacks are progressing. When companies train machine learning algorithms to recognize attacks, hackers create their own AI tools to detect weak points within networks. Furthermore, smart malware is being built to personalize user information attacks.
These AI-based attacks show that while AI can help improve cybersecurity, cybercriminals can use it too. Ensuring that their data and information are secure is important for organizations — especially when using outdated systems that can not be easily upgraded or replaced.
How Will AI Continue to Help Cyber Security Advance in 2020?
Advances in AI and machine learning drive its technical development. Real-time data and analytics allow stronger business cases to be developed, and drive higher adoption. Cybersecurity spending has rarely been related to higher sales or cost savings, but this is about to change in 2020.
As cyberattacks grow in frequency and complexity, artificial intelligence (AI) helps the analysts of under-resourced security operations stay ahead of threats. Curating the information of threats from millions of research papers, blogs and news reports, AI offers instant insights to help you battle the noise of thousands of regular warnings, dramatically reducing response times.
What is CMMC?
CMMC stands for “Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification“. The CMMC will cover various levels of maturity ranging from “Basic Cybersecurity Hygiene” to “Advanced / Progressive” The aim is to incorporate CMMC into the Supplement to Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation (DFARS) and use it as a contract award prerequisite.(1)
