Artificial Intelligence prevents cybercriminals from exploiting the company’s network by using technologies such as deep fakes. While many organizations were grappling with the COVID-19 debacle, Artificial Intelligence was protecting intellectual property from cyber attackers. Cyber attackers, on the other hand, are also becoming more innovative. Therefore it is important for organizations to focus on incorporating comprehensive cyber immunity into the process. With the pandemic expected to last for the foreseeable future, the question is “what will be the next step?” for preventing cyber-attacks.
Battle against time
The cyber attackers will leave the IT teams behind and innovate faster, if the organizations do not recognize the seriousness of the situation. The cyber criminals have already mastered the use of AI to launch their attacks. There is no other way for the cyber analysts to postpone the adoption of AI. Organizations can collect the security data from a variety of sources using SOAR (security orchestration, automation, and response) processes, allowing for faster and more reliable incident analysis. With the help of intelligent techniques the cyber analysts and IT teams would be able to monitor the growing threats.
Deep fake technology was making rounds at the start of 2021, and its capabilities were intriguing people. Hackers are learning to make fakes using AI and machine learning, and this technology may pose threat to the organizations. Along with the deep fakes, audio innovation, which may have become popular as a result of remote learning, would be a threat to the organizations. Such advanced systems are more difficult to identify, placing companies at risk of financial loss. During the course of this pandemic, social engineering techniques such as harvesting stolen online information in order to carry out social profiling (creating false identities for the targets) have become more prevalent. Since the world is undergoing a digital transition, these plans would place a strain on IT structures.
The first is to restore Artificial Intelligence budgets to their cyber security plans, and the second is to implement zero-trust policies. Zero confidence policies consider any entry into the business network as a potential threat and take the necessary steps to verify its intentions. Efficient threat identification will take place across all of a company’s digital intellectual assets with solid multifactor authentication, strict identity governance, and a long lifecycle.
Cyber attackers targeted e-commerce networks, financial services, healthcare, and a variety of other sectors in 2020, taking advantage of the physical-to-remote-working turmoil. To address this, organizations should use Artificial Intelligence to supplement humans and machines in 2021 to develop creative artificial intelligence-powered solutions to disrupt the attacker’s plans. Along with concrete zero-trust procedures, AI technology can aid in the detection of deep fakes.
