You’re probably not always thinking about your business’ cybersecurity. Unfortunately, hackers do. These opportunistic criminals spend most of their days trying to find any cracks in the walls of your network so they can slip their way in and leave with as much sensitive material as they can. Whether they break through your encryption or fool an employee into giving up his or her password through a phishing scheme, the result is the same — an extremely damaging and expensive breach. However, even though you may not be able to devote your full attention to shoring up your security 24/7, there is something that can.
Artificial intelligence makes a perfect addition to your cybersecurity measures. Solutions that incorporate AI are much better equipped to deal with the ever-changing tactics cybercriminals use. This is because the advanced machine learning they use can identify and adapt to a threat immediately, making it possible for them to seal the gaps in your protocols and leave bad actors no room to use their tricks. For example, AI can spot any access attempts that seem suspicious and quarantine them until they can be verified as legitimate. It also has the capability to spot phishing emails before they reach employees’ inboxes and redirect them before they have a chance to fool anyone.
There is no such thing as downtime when it comes to protecting your customers’ personal information and other valuable data. Having protection that includes AI means you have a watchdog that is always vigilant and ready to act the moment anything seems strange.
