Is AI affecting cyber security?

AI is the newest powerful cybersecurity tool supporting real time detection, prevention and reaction to any incursions and attacks over the Internet. Recent studies highlight AI-based cybersecurity as a growing market valued $22,4 billion in 2023 expected to raise annually by 22%, but AI also fosters novel social engineering attacks based on ChatGPT (+135%). To be ahead of a challenging cybersecurity landscape endangered by sophisticated attacks, organizations need to enforce their defensive strategies with advanced measures like AI to optimize performances (100 days acceleration to detect and handle threats) and reduce damage costs (-$1,8 billion).

incident response in cybersecurity

Why is incident response important in case of cyber attack

: Incident response (IR) is a security approach allowing to quickly identify attacks, mitigate damages, address causes and reduce negative events iteration. As cyber security represents a key function to enforce across digital transformation, companies must build solid and detailed incident response plans to check areas exposed to attacks and foresee the best defensive countermeasures. The importance of incident response plans shouldn’t be underestimated, as IBM states that organizations can save $4,45 million for the recovery, especially leveraging AI-based solutions with a $1,76 million saving. Furthermore, firms are willing to increase their investments in cyber security to develop and implement incident response plans into business.
k.i.s.s. principle for cybersecurity

The K.I.S.S. principle for cyber security

The K.I.S.S. principle is a design approach highlighting simplicity as a key factor to improve products and services overall quality, usability and performances. The K.I.S.S. principle can be successfully applied for cyber security design to make security models’ architecture and procedures easy, usable, effective, efficient and responsive to tackle cyber threats minimizing risks and damages. The acronym “K.I.S.S.” stands for several meanings like “keep it simple, stupid” or “keep it super simple”, but for what concerns cyber security it could be read as “keep information security simple”. This approach addresses simplicity as the powerful lever that made the most disruptive innovations possible, a concept confirmer by modern geniuses as Steve Jobs.
