About AI-Enhanced Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a collection of technologies, processes, and practices designed for  the safeguarding of internet-connected systems, including hardware, software, and data, from cyberthreats attack, damage, unauthorized access, privacy violation, unauthorized disclosure of information, and other aspects of electronic system malfeasance.

Current major cybersecurity challenges include:

  • Ransomware attacks
  • Internet Of Things (IoT) attacks
  • Cloud attacks
  • Phishing and social engineering attacks
  • Blockchain and cryptocurrency attacks
  • Exploitation of Software vulnerabilities
  • Attacks on corporate data and machine learning training data
  • Corruption of devices and systems
  • Insider attacks / Intellectual Property Theft
  • Vulnerability of Outdated hardware
  • Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks
  • Third party software and systems vulnerability
  • Mobile devices as a Cyber Crime Vector
  • Supply Chain Cyber Attacks
  • Evasion of data privacy regulations

Artificial Intelligence is impacting cybersecurity on two major fronts, by acting not only on the defensive side, but also on the offensive side. AI can identify anomalies in behavior patterns that may be utilized as a defensive tool – but regrettably, hackers, phishers, and thieves can use the same techniques to carry out attacks.
