There is little doubt that Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning (ML) are transforming the way industries are operating, analyzing risks, solving problems and increasing overall productivity. AI is also reducing street traffic, improving customer experience while shopping online, and making life comfortable with voice-activated digital assistants. When it comes to the role of AI in cyber security, it’s going to be vital for protecting confidential information and intellectual property of users.
The adaptive machine learning algorithms and security software detect derelictions, phishing attacks, and suspicious activities pertaining to data theft and cyber-attacks.
The incidents of cybercrimes and data thefts are on a rise. Large and small organizations transmit a huge amount of data through vast networks and online systems locally and globally, making them vulnerable all the time.
However, the conventional technology the organizations use cannot spot unauthorized access by hackers and potential threats of real-time data thefts. They cannot improvise and keep up with the tricks and contrivances adopted by the hackers.
Such loopholes and breach of cyber safety can only be prevented by using AI and adaptive machine learning algorithms. AI cybersecurity thwarts the stealing of confidential information and data, and perceives any cyber threat or suspicious activity.
The machine learning algorithms become effective and identify ongoing cyber-attacks on time. They are designed in such a way that informs the user about the cyber-attack as soon as it happens. They have the ability to learn and react in time to spot those malpractices.
So how do they work? Machine Learning facilitates computers to utilize and adapt algorithms according to the data received. The algorithms can learn and understand the data and take the appropriate steps automatically to prevent breaching of online security.
When the AI algorithms observe any anomaly or notice unusual activities that are beyond the standard patterns, it can block a user who is trying to get an unauthorized access. Thus, AI is competent to find solutions to complex cybercrimes by taking intelligent decisions at the right time.
The scope of AI is vast. Large and small organizations have used many methodologies and tactics of integrating AI into the domain of cybersecurity. Some of them are as follows:
Well, the answer is, AI is going to have an extremely positive impact on cybersecurity. Here are some of the advantages of integrating AI and machine learning algorithms on cybersecurity.
Websites depend on AI and ML, to prevent unauthorized access, phishing emails (the process of obtaining username or password or credit card details by sending emails) and other malicious activities of hackers. AI-powered security systems can prevent cyber malpractices without manual help or human intervention.
They will detect the attack before pauses the entire system. No matter how tactful or adept the hackers maybe, AI will successfully thwart all such efforts.
The AI-powered cybersecurity in organizations utilizes predictive analysis that provides a faster and reliable approach to protect data of users and prevent suspicious activities of hackers. For individual users, AI uses a multi-factor authentication process that gathers appropriate credentials to give access to the system.
Biometric logins enabled by AI-powered systems have added to cybersecurity. AI-based cybersecurity systems investigate fingerprints, palm prints, and images of the retina which assures security to biometric login access. Face recognition technology is another potent biometric authentication. Here facial features of a user are identified by using in-built infra-red sensors and neural engines.
AI and ML are facilitating systems to predict cyber malpractices ahead of time and detect anomalies with a great deal of accuracy. The speed with which AI-powered cybersecurity systems carry out the task and beef-up the level of accuracy, can never be emulated by humans. Thus AI empowers organizations and individual users when it comes to protecting confidential information and phishing.
With the world embracing digital transformation at an unprecedentedly rapid speed, AI has already made its presence felt in cybersecurity. In years to come, there are going to be more significant developments and innovative approaches to incorporating AI in cyber security.
I have had the pleasure of working with Visvero (Sandi) for almost two years now. She has been an extremely resourceful contact and is always quick to help. She and her team at Visvero were able to find candidates for even the most stringent requirements and job descriptions. She is a pleasure to work with and will make sure any candidate she sends over is a qualified candidate. I would recommend any recruiters working on C2C contract positions to reach out to her.
Process Automation, Budgeting, Applications Development, Google Charts, PHP, Open Source, Pentaho
Visvero helped us develop a industry transforming solution to have a direct profit impact on mid-size landscaping industry. We have been able to help our clients manage the business lifecycle with their clients from the lead generation to contracts execution phase. The application helps our clients identify and independently track and manage each cost component on any project or maintenance contract. Tracking/ managing these allows our clients to better control quality and profitability of each contract.
Business Intelligence, Qlik, Alteryx, .NET, Tableau, Sisense, SpotFire, Machine Learning
As an advisor to various state and national agencies NIC takes on several blue sky technology projects for which we rely on trusted partners for advice and investment of time and treasure. Visvero team invested thousands of person hours helping our team socialize the key analytics technologies and develop and enhance the products for various client projects. The team was always able to take project briefs and create high utility analytics applications. Definitely recommend them for public sector applications projects.
Business Intelligence, Staffing, .NET, Tableau, Flexible
In LA, we are in a competitive market for talent. So, when we had a recent need for specialized Tableau developers, we turned to our trusted friends at Visvero. We were rapidly able to add 3 talented developers on project. Visvero was very flexible in accommodating our request to convert developers as Fandango FTE. I highly recommend Visvero recruiters for being able to find critical Business Intelligence consultants quickly and being flexible with contracts to make the gains permanent.
Business Intelligence, Qlik, OBIEE, Risk Reporting, HR Analytics
“We organized an analytics “bake-off” between IBM using Endeca and Visvero using Qlik. In two weeks the Visvero team was able to deliver a consumer ready Risk and HR analytics application, four weeks later we were just getting started with IBM. And what’s more, my team and I spent over 80 hours getting IBM to start to understand what it is that we needed. Visvero team had a subject matter expert who took all of 6 hours with my team. Engaging Visvero was a “no-brainer” decision.”
Pharmaceuticals, Sales and Research applications, Qlik, SAP
At Allergan, our business team had a very divergent view of output from our analytics roll-out. Visvero was able bridge the gap and deploy a crack team of Qlik and SAP developers who enabled us to deliver the applications in weekly sprints. Our team scaled 1 power user to a team of 8 developers in 10 days. QuikWIN methodology was transformational in how we delivered applications to our customers – the sales organization.
Business Intelligence, Staffing, SAP, Business Objects, Oracle, DB2
This project is a key win for us. Visvero consultants were properly vetted and compliant with our rigorous processes. Consultants appeared to be satisfied with offline mentoring and periodic training on new tools. As a contracted asset the engaged consultants do not have adequate access to same trainings that are available to our FTEs, Visvero closed this gap by creating their internal trainings to support our consultants. It was great for everybody involved. And the teams were super productive!
