Why AI could be the key to turning the tide in the fight against cybercrime | ZDNet
A lack of cybersecurity staff is well documented: could artificial intelligence be what makes life harder for hackers?
The first step is being taken right now. It’s about machine learning and systems that search for anomalies and out of the order behavior. For instance, when signing on from a different place or time an adaptive authentication system will increase the security level and require you to sign on with an extra factor, like biometrics.
Finding anomalies in a complex system is extremely time and personnel consuming and will impact system performance. Deep learning algorithms can do most of the heavy lifting here and let the security team focus on the alarms.
