  2. Cybersecurity & Artificial Intelligence: A Glimpse at 2020

    Comments Off on Cybersecurity & Artificial Intelligence: A Glimpse at 2020

    At Integrated Axis, we spend a great deal of time studying current and trending news in the industry, especially where cybersecurity is concerned. Many of the trends in the upcoming year concern artificial intelligence. While there are definitely other trends and upcoming changes to think about, we’re going to concentrate this short article on AI and how it impacts your cybersecurity.

    Top Predictions for How AI Impacts Cybersecurity in 2020

    You don’t necessarily think of AI and cybersecurity at the same time. They’re two different facets of technology. The trends are rising to use AI in the workforce and you will see AI being used more robustly to streamline workflows and allow for the better use of data. It also won’t be the doom and gloom job killer. Being able to automate these processes means that your employees will be able to make use of the bigger picture data that was often lost to them before. This will allow them to launch more projects with greater efficiency and will likely create more high level jobs rather than cutting lower level jobs.

    So AI is going to be a necessity for most businesses going forward, but that doesn’t negate the fact that it comes with some cybersecurity risks. Here are a few upcoming AI cybersecurity trends you should be informed about to maintain proper data safety:

    • Hackers Will Use More AI to Analyze Behavior. AI isn’t just a tool for your business. It’s also a great tool for bad actors. We’re going to see an uptick in hacking organizations using AI in order to analyze behavior so that they infiltrate systems. What this means for you is that phishing and other attacks will be far more convincing. You won’t be able to rely on badly worded, unprofessional communications to give them away. It also means you’ll need to be more diligent with password protections and other cybersecurity measures.
    • AI Will Also Be Used By IT to Protect Data. AI automates a lot of processes that are difficult to do manually. Hackers are trying to find one opening into your system. Your IT team needs to find every possible breach point and secure it. AI will help to make their job easier to navigate.
    • AI Will Increase False Information. Fake news is a mantra you hear often in politics, but it is pretty rampant online and a lot of that is spurred by bots sending out fake tweets and websites publishing articles full of false information. While this by itself doesn’t necessarily compromise your cybersecurity. Those fake accounts are often run by or infiltrated by hackers who can lead real people to compromise professional data inadvertently.

    Are You Looking for an IT Expert to Help Prepare Your Team for Upcoming Cybersecurity Threats?

    As technology evolves, so do the different ways that your data can be compromised. AI will improve business processes but it also leaves you open to some forms of attack.
