Jarosław Nestioruk, Security Architect at ERGO Technology & Services S.A., is optimistic, that Artificial Intelligence will play major role in Cybersecurity sector: “If we use the right number of logical queries, we can eliminate a lot of the noise that we see in everyday work in cybersecurity.”
Accurate analysis can eliminate potential threats before they are triggered, says Jarosław Nestioruk, Security Architect at ERGO Technology & Services S.A.: “AI in Endpoint Security lets us eliminate the triage process for a high number of logs. The proper configuration of AI in UEBA systems (UEBA = User Entity Behavior Analytics) allows us to identify user anomalies in relation to performed actions. Securing authentication with the use of artificial intelligence for correct facial recognition, Captcha and fingerprint scanners have already existed for several years and work reasonably well.
However, along with the emerging excitement about AI technology, we should also ask ourselves at what cost our level of security is increased. Each of the solutions above requires learning to increase its effectiveness. And learning involves providing massive amounts of data about our behaviours, actions, operations, etc.
If you are interested in the topic AI in Cybersecurity, I recommend the articles below.”
AI and machine learning are now becoming essential to information security, as these technologies are capable of swiftly analyzing millions of data sets and tracking down a wide variety of cyber threats — from malware menaces to shady behavior that might result in a phishing attack.
Artificial intelligence endeavours to simulate human intelligence. It has immense potential in cybersecurity. If harnessed correctly, Artificial Intelligence or AI systems can be trained to generate alerts for threats, identify new types of malware and protect sensitive data for organisations.
Analyzing and improving cybersecurity posture is not a human-scale problem anymore. In response to this unprecedented challenge, Artificial Intelligence (AI) based tools for cybersecurity have emerged to help information security teams reduce breach risk and improve their security posture efficiently and effectively.
To ensure the safety of critical infrastructure and technological innovations, enterprises are increasing their cybersecurity budgets significantly, aligning business strategies with cybersecurity plans, and creating cyber awareness programs for employees and customers.
