Big data, AI and Cybersecurity
The current major buzzwords in the security industry are big data, analytics, and AI, as they are said to be the future of cybersecurity. But the newer security solutions that are introduced every day are increasingly sophisticated and complex to deter the ever-growing threats of hackers. Therefore, companies must keep up with the battle and stay updated with the on-going adaptation.

Security - A business enabler or a business inhibitor
In any business, innovation is the key for remaining competitive and yet security risks are often viewed as an inhibitor to these efforts. Security threats have increasingly become more advanced and the rise in the scale of cyberattacks is the proof. In order to move ahead, businesses should approach security as a business enabler and embed security into the foundation of a business strategy. Through this approach, businesses will be able to support business agility, facilitate organizational operations and thereby develop customer loyalty.

About the AI Wave
The sheer increase in the volume of cyberattacks has led organizations to think about cutting-edge solutions like Artificial Intelligence. AI will certainly have a transformative effect across most technologies and industries and AI is already a part of the cyber defence.
But AI is double-edged as it can be used as both offense and defence, therefore inculcating an amateur AI may prove troublesome. But the combination of human and AI will undoubtedly have a massive impact depending on how successfully AI is implemented.

In most cases, it includes cyber and IT security, and often there’s a physical security breach associated, either an employee who failed to follow the security protocols or corporate espionage.
