“AI will be a critical technology for organizations to stay on the top of cybersecurity, managing the large number of alerts which SIEM generates or detects through behavioural analytics. But Artificial Intelligence can be utilized in a more efficient way if there are better-skilled professionals to handle it,” says Rakesh Kharwal, Managing Director- India/South Asia & ASEAN, Cyberbit.
“Artificial Intelligence could be leveraged for nefarious activities such as the creation of an ever-evolving malware designed to infiltrate computer networks,” points out Rakesh Kharwal. “The other potential threats include social engineering attacks, hacked and weaponized autonomous vehicles, theft of sensitive data from government and private organizations, political interferences such as misinformation campaigns, and much more. We have seen a plethora of botnet attacks and machine learning-based TTPs including TaskRabbit, Nokia, WordPress, Marriott scam, and many more, wherein AI botnets help attackers in gaining access to devices and performing attacks without getting caught.”
