The Contribution of AI to Cybersecurity
AI can be a great weapon to identify unexpected attacks on the cyberspace, including high security based official websites and different web platforms.
FREMONT, CA: Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer a buzzword in the cybersecurity sector. AI is known for its artificial decision making that is similar to human decision making. AI plays a pivotal role in strengthening security measures, thus mitigating various risks.
Let us look at the role of AI in cybersecurity:
Identifying Cyber Attacks
AI can be a great weapon to identify unexpected attacks on the cyberspace, including high security based official websites and different web platforms. Hackers utilize various ways to begin cyber-attacks and demand for ransom. In this situation, sites that need high security rely on AI as the primary method of detecting cyber-attacks. Also, hackers find it difficult to get access to high-security websites because high-security websites rely on AI to detect any kind of unauthorized entry.
Preventing Cyber Attacks
It is not unknown that mere identification of a security threat cannot keep a virtual platform’s website safe from cyber attackers, including hackers. In this case, AI can be utilized to prevent cyber-attacks in different ways. In order to prevent a cyber-attack, one who is in charge of the website needs to get into the minds of hackers. Here, AI can be utilized to get an idea about how a hacker might think and act to break the security code.
Hackers often take the help of different techniques and methods to gain entry to the target website. Hence, the first step would be to closely watch the target website and try to find out weak points. Once it is identified, hacking becomes easier as hackers use malware and similar hacking tools to hack a website.
AI Bolstering Security of Popular Websites
In the case of a website with less traffic, a few interconnected systems, and less popularity, there is no need to rely on sophisticated AI to protect the website from cyber-attack. However, hackers might not target less public platforms and popular websites because they can not gain much from it. Instead, AI can be very helpful in improving the security of popular websites with high traffic.
