Unveiling the Potential and Perils of AI in Cybersecurity

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been developing at a rapid pace and has been integrated into a growing number of applications across every industry. AI continues to widen its capabilities to assist in a variety of daily tasks but, as can be expected with any Internet-based technology, AI also has a dark side. As cyberattacks have grown in volume and complexity over the last few years due to Covid-19, what could cybersecurity and AI look like going forward? If you want to know more about how Covid-19 affected cybersecurity, check out our blog “Cybersecurity in the post Covid-19 world.”

Preserving Privacy Around Artificial Intelligence

The cost of implementation for these types of integrated AI systems can be very high, making it an unattainable option for smaller businesses. Unfortunately, on the threat front, cybercriminals can use AI to devise and launch increasingly more complex cyber attacks. A study from 2023 by Blackberry stated that 51% of IT decision makers believe there will be a successful cyberattack credited to ChatGPT within the year.

Some malware architects have used AI to recreate malware strains and techniques described only in research publications, introducing an entirely new level of cyberattacks. For example, Chat GPT has successfully written functional malware that is capable of stealing sensitive files, encrypting hard drive content, and more. While this malware is not yet sophisticated, the speed and scale at which it can be produced is alarming. Additionally, other AI models have the capability to make attacks even more sophisticated by impersonating the voices of people and demanding money transfers. We can expect to see more attacks that are highly targeted social engineering attacks. Cybersecurity experts also state that AI-created deep fakes are finding ways to bypass biometric authentication, thus gaining access to protected systems.

We are still in the early stages of AI. These AI integrated systems need to be constantly monitored as they are far from perfect and can be prone to errors and biases. But it is clear AI products will continue to improve with time. When AI is used for corporate purposes, it is important that businesses which incorporate these AI systems ensure the technology is used for ethical purposes. These AI systems must be monitored to prevent them from being engineered to act against the corporate assets, and are not used to invade user privacy or circumvent traditional security measures – the  double-edged sword when it comes to security. While AI can provide benefits in threat detection and response capabilities, it can also pose a significant threat – be sure that your data is protected.

Simplify your data security needs. Encryptionizer is easy to deploy. It is a cost-effective way to proactively and transparently protect your sensitive data that allows you to quickly and confidently meet your security requirements. With budget considerations in mind, we have designed an affordable data security platform that protects, manages, and defends your data, while responding to the ever changing compliance requirements.
