With most of our personal and financial information living in accessible portals online, cybersecurity is more crucial than ever. By 2020 it is estimated that over 1.5 billion people will be affected by some sort of data breach. As technology improves, it is almost an arms race of security and hackers alike. A webroot report claims that more than 90% of cybersecurity professionals are very worried about AI attacks and breaches. In addition, AI will provide insights and counter procedures to help defend against breaches- three quarters of professionals believe it will be impossible to defend against attacks without AI in the next three years. As Hal Lonas, Chief Technology Officer of Webroot says “There is no doubt about AI being the future of security as the sheer volume of threats is becoming very difficult to track by humans alone. We stress to organizations the importance of a contextual view of threats that also incorporates visibility and data points from networks, endpoints, and human threat researchers to derive the most accurate cyber risk assessment. As the results reveal, AI is here to stay and it will have a large impact on security strategies moving forward.” The knowledge and leverage of AI will be imperative to staying on top of cybersecurity.
