The Challenges of Cyber Security

August 03, 2020

The Cyber Security Intelligence website reports there have been a number of recent predictions that the largest cyber attack in history will happen soon. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a large number of hacks, and a shift back to opening the workplace may increase the risk of attack further.

The biggest challenge is training employees to stay alert as they transition back to the workplace. Artificial intelligence can be a big security problem, but also the answer to a potential "D Day" style attack. According to research institution Institute for Security and Open Methodologies (ISECOM), AI-based solutions automate and increase efficiency without adding to a security. team's workload.

ISECOM says the problem with cyber security is not a lack of innovation, but the fact that attackers have so many combinations at their disposal that a product based defense is not enough. An advanced IT system can monitor a network and detect an attack in seconds, while a team of professionals may take hours or days.

It will take a combination of advanced tools and rigorous training to prevent the next big attack.
