- The study also said that cyber attackers will also weaponise AI/ML to initiate attacks with record speeds and precision
- Organisations will use emerging tools and technologies that come with built-in AI/ML capabilities to fight breaches
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will be powering the ‘cyber war rooms’ in organisations’ to protect from increasing cyber attacks and detect, predict and respond to it. This conclusion comes from a PwC India and Data Security Council of India (DSCI) study titled,’‘Cyber Security India Market: What lies beneath’ .
The study also said that cyber attackers will also weaponise AI/ML to initiate attacks with record speeds and precision. It further said that that businesses are expected to adopt tools and solutions embedded with AI/ML capabilities to keep threats and attacks in check.
Increase expenditure on upgrading security
According to the study, almost all organisations will increase their expenditure on upgrading their security in their cloud environments. This will be done due to uniqueness of the threat actors on the systems. The study said that organisations will be concerned to protect their cloud-based infrastructure. They will invest in people, processes and technology to fortify the layers of cloud-based networks, including insider threats said the report.
As per the study, there will be more focus on adopting security operation centres to strengthen breach response capabilities. Organisations will use emerging tools and technologies that come with built-in AI/ML capabilities and regularly practice and refine their breach response plans.
Breaches start at the endpoint
Organisations will also start to recognise that most of the breaches start at the endpoint. This allows threat actors to get into the company networks. The number of endpoints including mobile services continues to increase with business data being processed or stored in them also rising.
