Integrating AI to Keep Your Information Systems Secure

Integrating AI to Keep Your Information Systems Secure

Due to the increasing complexity and rapid growth of the cybersecurity industry, businesses need to stay ahead of developing threats designed to undermine advancements in the latest and greatest security technologies. One way that researchers have used to fight against threats is through the use of artificial intelligence. It’s possible that this emerging technology could be the key to fighting back against cyberattacks.

How Does AI Security Work?

When used appropriately, AI security is a set of tools that can be used to autonomously detect and respond to potential threats. The activity is built upon previous or similar activity, so in a sense, AI security tools learn and grow over time to accommodate changes in the threat landscape. AI is always trying to learn about new threats, so you can expect to see a large number of false negatives and positives. Still, the process itself is much less involved because of its automated nature, and if it’s set up correctly, it can be a huge help when identifying suspicious behavior on your network.

What Are the Benefits?

It’s a fact that security professionals are expensive to find and hire, and small businesses often have smaller budgets and deadlines. AI makes these problems easier to manage through automating much of the process. AI makes it easier to discover threats and easier to address them over time. That being said, if you have AI with no one to manage or maintain it, it will likely become a burden rather than a help.

Is AI Security the Future?

When you consider that there is a downward trend in cybersecurity employment, it makes sense for autonomous and automated systems to make up for the shortage in labor. This unfilled labor gap could potentially reach 3.5 million positions by the end of the year alone. AI makes for an easy and efficient way to bypass hiring and training practices, and once it is set up, it can be left to its own devices, as long as someone is around to monitor and maintain it.

How Can Your Business Use AI Security?

AI security is perfectly accessible to small businesses, and with the right solutions, you can scale them in accordance with your specific needs and goals. If you can implement AI tools that appropriately align with your operational goals, you will find that your team will spend far less time worrying about cybersecurity and more time focusing on getting their work done.
