Cybersecurity is a growing concern in the current world we are living in. Every day, major cases of a security breach are being reported as hackers keep on getting better and learning new skills that help them maneuver through system security and ultimately gain access to the confidential information. Not only hackers are threats but ever-growing large volumes of data and increasingly complex technologies to deal with are also a challenge for most IT specialists. Therefore, the need to have a way or self-defending security system that can be able to detect threats by analyzing large volumes of data, configuring devices, and being able to respond to these threats without human interventions, is what is needed.
Organizations and security teams must take advantage of machine learning and AI; it is the solution to all these security issues organizations are facing. With Machine learning, companies will be able to close all loopholes that may be on the system or organizations’ network. There are many ways that machine learning can be used to improve cybersecurity.
Help in decision making n security
Making decisions based on data analysis is one of the key control that cybersecurity relies on. There is a need to make fast and smart decisions that will be helpful to the security team of any organization so that they stay far ahead of hackers before they get access to the system. Therefore, machine learning will help in making a well-thought decision, in a short time as possible. It will analyze every data in a flash of second, without errors, helping the cybersecurity react to cyber breach before anything happens. Machine learning algorithms can integrate with security infrastructures in detecting and neutralizing and mitigating sophisticated threats. For example, Machine learning security solutions like Jupiter ATP can monitor potential risks in the network, helping cybersecurity teams to curb any suspicious activity before the attack happens.
Detecting cyber attacks
IoT attacks have increased drastically due to unsecure internet connections that have caused it to be a haven for hackers to thrive. Machine learning has great potential to transform IoT to become secure by changing security architecture to fit the ever-growing Internet of Things. Machine learning, together with AI, will be able to mimic the hacker’s behaviors and act as ethical hackers testing loopholes to make sure that the system is secure before it is attacked. It analyses patterns and learns from them assisting in preventing similar attacks that keep on recurring. It will also help in monitoring and accessing all areas that are vulnerable to attacks from hackers. Besides, machine learning helps in responding to changing behaviors by detecting anything that may be abnormal happening to the network or system.
Machine learning is a solution to all any undetected attacks that happen without anyone knowing. It will help in analyzing all data, networks, and anything that goes on in the system. There are no errors that can happen with machine learning, it is a perfect solution to attacks and it will be a hacker’s nightmare.
This is one of the best things that has happened in the world of cybersecurity. Reactiveness to threats in the systems or network is very important as it can save damage from happening. Being slow when it comes to responding to attacks can be a big damage to any organization. Machine learning will help in becoming more proactive in preventing threats and responding to cyberattacks in real-time. It can also reduce the amount of time used to do routine tasks and help cybersecurity time to use resources in a better way.
Not only will machine learning help in the cybersecurity team in being proactive to attacks but also it will make it effective and simple. For this to be possible machine learning should always provide a complete picture of the organizations or systems environment.
