Using AI for Improved Threat DetectionPresident of Bahrain's AI Society, Dr. Haji, on Using New Technology
Enterprises need to move away from manual threat detection methods to leverage artificial intelligence, which can help boost defenses, says Dr. Jassim Haji, president of Artificial Intelligence Society, Bahrain Chapter.
AI can help analyze criminals' writing patterns as well as malware signatures, identify how many network devices have been attacked and pave the way to taking the right steps to fight threats, he says in an interview with Information Security Media Group.
He suggests security practitioners reconsider their security architecture and define a road map for deploying AI as a strategic approach to detect threats earlier.
In this interview (see audio link below photo), he offers insights on:
- Applying AI to spot vulnerabilities;
- Using AI to address identity challenges;
- Creating an AI program to tackle cybercrime.
