AI is one of the important leading technologies today in smart digital transformation. AI technologies help to provide better decision and acting on data, especially across larger networks with many users and variables.
1) Network Vulnerability Surveillance and Threat Detection
Artificial intelligence can help to detect and identify cyber-threats. AI helps to monitor real-time activities on the network by scanning data and files to recognize unauthorized communication attempts, unauthorized connections, unusual data movement. Artificial intelligence tools can help in software updating automatically which helps in preventing threats. AI programs are able to detect more advanced threats. These programs learn the network activities and can recognize any unusual activities that might indicate a threat.
2) Incident Diagnosis and Response
The incident diagnosis and response is a tool that answers the question about why and how it happened. So the Al software applications can help to see the past data sets to find the causes of the incident and to figure out which unusual activity indicated it. Figuring out the cause of the incident is important because then responding to the incident based on recommendations to contain the causes of the incident permanently. There are various recommendations which include change in strategy, adoption of new procedures or processes.
3) Cyber Threat Intelligence Reports
Many cybersecurity staff face attacks everyday. Cyber-reality has generated an overload of information that is challenging to collect, organize, and analyze. AI solutions have helped to come up with solutions to support cyber threat analysts and address the problem of information data. These solutions include Al tools to help with specific vulnerabilities and threats. Cyber threat intelligence reports provide the indicators and warning to help with monitoring unusual activities on a network and detect more rapidly cyber threats.
Businesses all around the world face a significant risk of cyberattacks. Therefore organizations need to strengthen their cybersecurity posture to manage potential risks. There are some necessary steps to protect a business.
One of the important steps to improve cybersecurity posture is to conduct a risk assessment. Doing a risk assessment helps the organization to identify all possible areas that need improvement and are vulnerable to security like the potential impact of a data breach. All employees should have access to security tools to protect the organization's security like security tools for data encryption like VPNs. VPN is one the most important tools to strengthen security of the business.
After the risk assessment is done now the other important step is to figure out the risk and impact. Identify the risks that could destroy the organization and it will be easy for the security team to prioritize risks and work on them one by one to improve the entire security posture. One main technique is that to prioritize risks is called Cybersecurity ratings. Cybersecurity rating helps with how the organization is protecting the data and is it enough.
The next important step to improve security posture is to have an incident management plan which is a necessary measure for an organization because nowadays attacks have increased tremendously. Not having an incident management plan is not a good thing because if a data breach occurs the cybersecurity team will not know how to start to fix the situation. Having a plan will help detect the attack early on and will save time to counter the attack.
Since there are so many devices connected to the network, it is impossible for the cybersecurity team in an organization to stay on top of all potential security risks and threats. That's why it is important to automate threat detection in the system.
The cybersecurity threat is growing and increasing its negative impacts on businesses and causing them millions.
