A big buzzword that is transforming the way businesses use new technology is artificial intelligence, or AI. Learn how it can be used to enhance your cyber security program.
I’ve covered the risks that AI can introduce to your organization. Now, let’s discuss the ways that AI can be utilized to bolster your cyber security program.
Cyber Threat Detection
Cyber threat intelligence and threat hunting is elevated with a proper AI system.
Improve anomalous detection times and response in order to stop attacks.
With proper email profiles and “normalized” traffic, anomalous entries can be detected before delivery.
The ability to detect unauthorized access, unusual codes and other anomalous behavior will provide the ability to prevent further attacks.
Automated Incident Reponses
AI systems can boost threat hunting, incidents of compromise detection and incident responses. All these can reduce incident response times and reduce potential harm to your network.
Insider Threat Mitigation
These types of threats come in two categories: malicious and unintentional. Both can be detected via anomalous behavior based on profiled patterns from each user.
Strengthening of Access Control
AI can strengthen user access by including biometrics, multi-factor authentication and location-based usage to track logs and compare based on individual attributes.
Identification of False Positives
One of the biggest issues with log events is the threat of investigating false positives. It is a time-consuming practice that taxes resources. AI systems can mitigate these risks by managing low-probability threats.
IT Staffing Efficiency and Costs
AI systems allow for 24/7 prevention, detection and response, allowing for SOC employee efficiencies and lowered costs (money spent on overtime, etc.).
Modern Cyber Security Solutions Include AI
Understanding and being predictive in providing real-time business decisions is key to business competitiveness. With AI’s ability to provide advanced analytics, the advantages have never been greater, and utilizing this same technology to detect changes to your network, data and applications will also elevate your security and privacy measures.
Addressing the risks and taking advantage of the many benefits of AI will be instrumental to a stable and transformative digital future.
