Should we invest solely in cyber security - or teach our machines instead?

WE'RE well into February, yet the row over Russia's suggested involvement in November's US presidential election continues. Before he left office, Barack Obama warned NATO allies to closely monitor any impending elections. Last month top US intelligence directors testified about the suggested hacks at a Senate hearing, where other more sophisticated cyber-attacks and the growing need to fortify cyber-security strategy. In every modern economy, including Ireland, criminals are fighting a 21st century war, attacking our critical infrastructure and financial systems, using unconventional techniques. But getting this message across to most businesses seems to be failing, and so they defend themselves with antiquated methods.

An ever-present threat to any given country's national security is that of cybersecurity. There are always hackers that want to use technology for malicious purposes, not to say the long list of adversaries that a country can pile up along the years. That's so as what it is at stake is millions of sensible data from citizens, companies, directories, senior officers and members of the government, state's papers and more. Unfortunately, not all Governments take this peril as seriously as they should, and the efforts towards creating cyber-defense strategies – in most countries – lack budget, personnel and even real, field knowledge. Before this absence of real policies, Artificial Intelligence might be well seen as a good starting point where to build the walls that keep out any possible threats.

Keeping your information technology systems secure isn't as simple as you may think. This generation's digital revolution has brought about countless cyber threats that seemingly evolve along with new advancements in science and technology. However, IT outsourcing services have also evolved to address new forms of threats. Among these new panaceas is Artificial Intelligence, a concept you may have first heard of in the 1999 Robin Williams movie, "Bicentennial Man" or the 2001 Spielberg hit "A.I. While these mainstream movies have successfully brought AI to the consciousness of many, a lot of them have yet to realise the impact of AI to cybersecurity.
