Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) play the role of a double agent in the future of cybersecurity?
According to a recent Microsoft Security blog post, this seems to be the case as cyber attacks are becoming more automated through AI-assisted tools. They are also increasing exponentially, and "the number of password attacks Microsoft detects has more than tripled in the last 12 months, from 1,287 per second to more than 4,000 per second."
The new wave of cyber attacks, also known as offensive AI, can enable cybercriminals to direct targeted attacks at daunting speeds and scale while flying under the radar of traditional detection tools. As offensive AI quickly redefines the cyber threat landscape, it's crucial that organizations adopt new defenses to fight back.
How can we defend ourselves against offensive AI? AI might also be the answer to that question.
There is now a unique opportunity to harness the power of AI in combination with an end-to-end security solution to build a resilient security posture with defenses that adapt just as fast as the "bad guys."
