#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence has long caused fear of job loss across many sectors as companies look for ways to cut costs, support workers and become more profitable. But new research suggests that even in STEM-based sectors like cybersecurity, AI simply can't replace some traits found only in humans, such as creativity, intuition and experience. There's no doubt, AI certainly has its place. And most business leaders agree that AI is important to the future success of their company. A recent survey found CEOs believe the benefits of AI include creating better efficiencies (62 percent), helping businesses remain competitive (62 percent), and allowing organizations to gain a better understanding of their customers, according to Ernst and Young.

#artificialintelligence

TOKYO, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- About Cyneural While cyber-attack defenses generally respond by detecting specific patterns of "signatures" that indicate malicious access, complex or unknown attacks that utilize AI or BOTs can be difficult to detect or can result in false positives. This is why cyber-attack defenses also need to take advantage of technology with flexibility such as AI. Against this backdrop, Cyber Security Cloud developed its own attack detection AI engine, Cyneural, in August 2019. "Cyneural" uses a feature extraction engine that utilizes the knowledge cultivated through CSC's research on web access and various attack methods. It builds multiple types of training models to help detect not only common attacks but also unknown cyber-attacks and false positives at a higher speed. About Cyneural being used in Shadankun and WafCharm Since the development of Cyneural, CSC has been operating it by utilizing the large amount of data that they have.

Basic Ways AI Disrupts Our Cybersecurity Practices

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence, the term which first originated in the 1950s has now emerged as a prominent buzzword all over the world. More than 15% of companies are using AI and it is proving to be one of the most powerful and game-changing technology advancements of all time. From Siri to Sophia, the technology has people noticing it and wondering how this will impact their future. Presently, Artificial Intelligence is seen everywhere. Major industries like healthcare, education, manufacturing, and banking are investing in AI for their digital transformation. Cybersecurity, being the major concern of the digital world, is still uncertain about the impact AI will have on it. With the fast-growing cyber attacks and attackers, cybercrime is growing to become a  massively profitable business which is one of the largest threats to every firm in the world. For this very reason, many companies are implementing Artificial Intelligence techniques which automatically detect threats and fight them without human involvement. How AI Is Enhancing Cybersecurity Artificial Intelligence is improving cybersecurity by automating complicated methods which detect attacks and react to security breaches. This leads to improvement in monitoring incidents leading to faster detection of threats and its consequent responses. These two aspects are quite essential as they minimize the damages caused. Various Machine Learning algorithms are adapted for this process depending on the data obtained. In the field of cybersecurity, these algorithms can identify exceptions and predict threats with greater speed and accuracy.

Security Think Tank: AI cyber attacks will be a step-change for criminals

#artificialintelligence

Whether or not your organisation suffers a cyber attack has long been considered a case of'when, not if', with cyber attacks having a huge impact on organisations. In 2018, 2.8 billion consumer data records were exposed in 342 breaches, ranging from credential stuffing to ransomware, at an estimated cost of more than $654bn. In 2019, this had increased to an exposure of 4.1 billion records. While the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning as a primary offensive tool in cyber attacks is not yet mainstream, its use and capabilities are growing and becoming more sophisticated. In time, cyber criminals will, inevitably, take advantage of AI, and such a move will increase threats to digital security and increase the volume and sophistication of cyber attacks.

AI could help solve the privacy problems it has created - teiss

#artificialintelligence

As cybersecurity and privacy researchers, we believe that the relationship between AI and data privacy is more nuanced. The spread of AI raises a number of privacy concerns, most of which people may not even be aware. But in a twist, AI can also help mitigate many of these privacy problems. Privacy risks from AI stem not just from the mass collection of personal data, but from the deep neural network models that power most of today's artificial intelligence. Data isn't vulnerable just from database breaches, but from "leaks" in the models that reveal the data on which they were trained. Deep neural networks – which are a collection of algorithms designed to spot patterns in data – consist of many layers.


How to improve cybersecurity for artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

In January 2017, a group of artificial intelligence researchers gathered at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in California and developed 23 principles for artificial intelligence, which was later dubbed the Asilomar AI Principles. The sixth principle states that "AI systems should be safe and secure throughout their operational lifetime, and verifiably so where applicable and feasible." Thousands of people in both academia and the private sector have since signed on to these principles, but, more than three years after the Asilomar conference, many questions remain about what it means to make AI systems safe and secure. Verifying these features in the context of a rapidly developing field and highly complicated deployments in health care, financial trading, transportation, and translation, among others, complicates this endeavor. Much of the discussion to date has centered on how beneficial machine learning algorithms may be for identifying and defending against computer-based vulnerabilities and threats by automating the detection of and response to attempted attacks.1 Conversely, concerns have been raised that using AI for offensive purposes may make cyberattacks increasingly difficult to block or defend against by enabling rapid adaptation of malware to adjust to restrictions imposed by countermeasures and security controls.2
