Cyber Security

Cyber security or information technology security are the techniques of protecting computers, networks, programs and data from unauthorized access or attacks that are aimed for exploitation.

The next generation of cybersecurity products are increasingly incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies.

In 1998, New York Times reported that researchers in the US and China had successfully commanded artificial intelligence (AI) systems developed by Amazon, Apple, and Google to do things such as dial phones and open websites—without the knowledge of the AI systems’ users – a short step to more nefarious commands, such as unlocking doors and transferring money. In fact, more than 90% of cybersecurity professionals in the US and Japan expect attackers to use AI against the companies they work for, according to a survey by cybersecurity firm Webroot.

The good news for companies is that they can tap the power of AI to both upgrade their cybersecurity capabilities and protect their AI initiatives. Moreover, investments in AI will likely have multiple forms of payback.

The list of actual AI applications is already long and growing.  Faster and more accurate credit scoring for banks, improved disease diagnosis and treatment development for health care companies, and enhanced engineering and production capabilities for manufacturers are just a few examples. A survey in 2017 by BCG and MIT Sloan Management Review found that about 20% of companies have already incorporated AI in some offerings or processes and that 70% of executives expect AI to play a significant role at their companies in the next five years.

Cybersecurity is a manpower constrained market – therefore, the opportunities for artificial intelligence (AI) automation are vast.
