As cyber attacks and pandemic claims increased, the world was faced with an issue of public instability that affected all sectors and instances of normalcy in great volume and complexity. Public health and information security took on real relevance during the ravages of the pandemic, forcing companies and businesses to start looking for new adaptability solutions to recover and evade any kind of long-term cyber risk.
With the increase in security threats, cybercriminals are taking advantage of vulnerabilities and gaps in organizations, using malicious domains, malware and Ransomware. Faced with these new challenges brought about by the pandemic and confinement, organizations have found it necessary to strengthen cybersecurity processes to protect their information.
What role does artificial intelligence play in information security?
Artificial Intelligence is evolving the role of cybersecurity, accelerating response times and increasing security operations. With this tool, organizations proactively detect and analyze threats, providing actionable insights to security analysts to make informed, fast and accurate decisions. AI is transforming the cybersecurity game, analyzing massive amounts of risk data with the goal of accelerating response times and augmenting under-resourced security operations.
"Sixty-nine percent of companies recognize they will not be able to respond to critical threats without artificial intelligence." Capgemini.
According to a study by the Capgemini Research Institute, nearly half of the executives surveyed said their cybersecurity analysts are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of data they have to monitor to detect and prevent intrusions. In addition, the type of cyberattacks that require immediate attention or cannot be resolved quickly enough by analysts have increased markedly, including:
Cyber-attacks affecting time-sensitive applications.
Automated attacks at a speed that only a machine can reach and that mutate at a rate that cannot be neutralized by traditional response systems.
Cyber attacks are growing and the use of these modern technologies help organizations invest in building a smarter and more essential enterprise in the long term, extending from analytics and prediction, preventing cybercrime that has increased due to the pandemic.
Sandra, a Digisoc strategic tool
The information security industry seeks to offer solutions that overcome the specific limitations of organizations. That is why Digisoc has developed new security mechanisms and operations to provide greater support and respond to cybersecurity threats with greater confidence and speed.
SANDRA is a conversational platform that notifies the user, making it possible for the user to interact with a security incident, defining the analysis and response flow, while automating a series of operational activities. Its threat detection focuses on covering the entire surface of known and unknown attacks, proving that detecting them is no longer an unattainable challenge.
Detection is now a problem of volumes; its complexity lies in responding to each of those detected threats. Digisoc's cybersecurity defense and operations centers identify a large number of security events per hour, per organization (companies with an average of 6,000 employees) on a daily basis, with a steady upward trend. Sandra facilitates and enables analysts to respond to threats with greater confidence and speed, analyzing large amounts of data that provides instant information that helps fight through the noise of thousands of units of information, which drastically reduces response times.
We must foresee that Artificial Intelligence is and will be fundamental to the future of cybersecurity, organizations today must direct all their efforts to solving the implementation issues that prevent artificial intelligence from reaching its full cybersecurity potential.
