Artificial Intelligence for Cybersecurity: Threats, Attacks and Mitigation

by   Abhilash Chakraborty, et al.

With the advent of the digital era, every day-to-day task is automated due to technological advances. However, technology has yet to provide people with enough tools and safeguards. As the internet connects more-and-more devices around the globe, the question of securing the connected devices grows at an even spiral rate. Data thefts, identity thefts, fraudulent transactions, password compromises, and system breaches are becoming regular everyday news. The surging menace of cyber-attacks got a jolt from the recent advancements in Artificial Intelligence. AI is being applied in almost every field of different sciences and engineering. The intervention of AI not only automates a particular task but also improves efficiency by many folds. So it is evident that such a scrumptious spread would be very appetizing to cybercriminals. Thus the conventional cyber threats and attacks are now “intelligent" threats. This article discusses cybersecurity and cyber threats along with both conventional and intelligent ways of defense against cyber-attacks. Furthermore finally, end the discussion with the potential prospects of the future of AI in cybersecurity.
