AI in Cyber Security – Debunking the Myths


AI is the new kid on the block, that most definitely has a promising future in helping protect our organisations from cyber attacks, but it is no silver bullet.

In this article we’re cutting through the noise and separating fact from fiction. We’ll be debunking some common misconceptions about AI in cyber security.

 Fact from Fiction, Let’s Dive In

Myth 1 – AI is the ultimate game changer
Fact – AI isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Whilst it is capable of efficiently analysing data and detecting threats, it’s not a simple fix for everything.
We recommend using AI solutions as a part of a multi-faceted security strategy, helping your security experts to quickly analyse large data sets to cut down the time to identify complex threats and contain a breach.

Myth 2 – AI makes your business invincible
Fact – Cyber criminals are smart and constantly looking for new ways to attack your business, and it will only be a matter of time before they find a way to breach your latest AI based cyber strategy. So, think of AI as a security system that needs regular vulnerability updates and educated staff to stay effective.

Myth 3 – AI is a perfect tool
Fact – AI is a great tool, but it’s still very much an evolving technology. Don’t trust the marketing hype around AI. Yes, it is a “must” for any organisation looking to adopt the best cyber security solutions, but these solutions are a long way from perfection.

Myth 4 – AI works its magic, all on its own
Fact – AI doesn’t fly solo! It is the perfect assistant to your human IT security team. AI excels at spotting suspicious activities quickly, but you still need your security experts to step in.

Myth 5 – AI is for big companies with big budgets
Fact – As AI security solutions becomes affordable and easier to use, it is within reach of businesses of all sizes. And with cloud-based AI solutions available, businesses can easily scale up or down based on their needs, without the need to break the bank!

We cannot stress enough the importance of AI cyber solutions, and that they should be a part of every organisations cyber strategy, whatever their size.
