14 Cybersecurity Best Practices When Working With AI
Solutions Review, Monday, January 29th, 2024
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to revolutionize the field of cybersecurity in several ways, both enhancing defensive measures and introducing new challenges.

One of the primary impacts of AI on cybersecurity lies in the realm of threat detection and prevention. Advanced AI algorithms can analyze vast amounts of data at unprecedented speeds, allowing for the identification of patterns and anomalies indicative of potential security threats. Machine learning models, a subset of AI, can adapt and improve over time by learning from past incidents, enabling more proactive and dynamic defense mechanisms.

With high-profile breaches in the news across the world and increasingly sophisticated threats, cybersecurity professionals face more challenges than ever before.

Cybersecurity and data security in general have never been so critical to enterprises - and everyday life. Everything we do is connected, and essentially everything is at risk.

High-profile security breaches dominate headlines just about everywhere. The U.K. Electoral Commission recently reported that hostile actors gained access to the electoral registers, which exposed an estimated 40 million people's personal details. In Northern Ireland, a cybersecurity incident exposed the personal information of 10,000 police officers and civilian staff.

Cloud adds a level of complexity to identity and access management. Be sure to follow these cloud IAM best practices to prevent identity-related security issues.

Many security experts view identity as the new perimeter due to the proliferation of the cloud. As such, organizations need to implement cloud identity and access management best practices to secure applications and data outside the traditional network. Not all security professionals are comfortable with cloud IAM, however.

As organizations adopt more cloud services, they face some unique IAM challenges. One of the more pressing problems is the rapid growth of various identities associated with cloud services. The more cloud services in use, the more identities provisioned into these service provider environments. This is problematic for tracking, monitoring and controlling cloud accounts, as well as for accessing cloud resources
