AI And Cybersecurity - Do Humans NEED To Be Made Obsolete? Articles Chief Innovation Officer

This is significant when you consider the importance of time when it comes to hacks. Once a business has been infiltrated, the length of time it takes to detect the intrusion has a momentous influence on how much damage is done and how easily the threat can be neutralized. 'The median time for detection is one hour. High-performance companies typically do this is in under 10 minutes - but low performing companies take days or weeks' according to Johanna Till Johnson, CEO at Nemertes Research.For example, when ransomware like the one which affected the NHS, penetrates a business, that is only the first step in the damage it causes. Once it's in, it starts encrypting all the data in that system, which can take time, so it needs to evade detection until it has finished.

Raghav serves as Content Lead at Emerj, covering our major industry areas and conducting research. Raghav has a personal interest in robotics, and previously worked for research firms like Frost & Sullivan and Infiniti Research. AI has made some inroads in the cybersecurity sector and several AI vendors claim to have launched products that use AI to help safeguard against cyber threats. At Emerj, we've seen many cybersecurity vendors offering AI and machine learning-based products to help identify and deal with cyber threats. Even the Pentagon created the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) to upgrade to AI-enabled capabilities in their cybersecurity efforts.


Why AI could be the key to turning the tide in the fight against cybercrime

ZDNet

A specially programmed AI can'think' about cybersecurity in a more complex detail than a human can. It's not unreasonable to suggest the cybersecurity battle is being lost - and on more than one front. Not only are more efficient and organised cybercriminals winning the security arms race against their corporate targets, there's also a shortage of cybersecurity professionals equipped with the skills required to fight hackers. Some claim the fight against online crooks will be bolstered not by hiring more people but rather by machines using techniques based around artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning. This doesn't mean self-learning machines will be outright replacing cybersecurity professionals, however, but rather augmenting what they're able to do and taking care of the most basic tasks.

AI in cybersecurity: 1 in 3 experts say humans won't be needed in a decade

#artificialintelligence

A third of cybersecurity experts believe the rise of AI in cybersecurity will see the end of humans making security decisions within a decade, according to research published today. In a survey cybersecurity experts conducted at Info Security Europe by One Identity, 33% of cybersecurity experts said that they believed there would be no need for humans to be involved in the cybersecurity decision making process in less than ten years. A further 13% said they thought this would happen in more than ten years, while 14% said they thought there was already no need for humans to make such decisions thanks to the rise of AI in cybersecurity. Only 40% said they thought that AI would never become advanced enough to remove humans from the cybersecurity decision making process. The use of artificial intelligence in the cybersecurity space has seen rapid proliferation in recent years, particularly to automate often mundane and repetitive processes within the space, or to lighten the load of cybersecurity researchers, who are in short supply in a growing field.
