In a constantly evolving digital threat landscape, where firewalls and antivirus are considered tools of antiquity, companies are looking to more technologically advanced means of protecting crucial data.

Cyber-attackers are leveraging automation technology to launch strikes, while many organisations are still using manual efforts to aggregate internal security findings and contextualising them with external threat information. Using these traditional methods, it can take weeks or months to detect intrusions, during which time attackers can exploit vulnerabilities to compromise systems and extract data. To address these challenges, progressive organisations are exploring the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in their day-to-day cyber risk management operations.

So how does AI secure organisations from cyber risks

Artificial Intelligence system is playing an important role here. Once a threat is identified, the AI tool automatically responds by taking proportionate actions to neutralise it and buy security teams enough time to catch up. In essence, it acts like a digital antibody that can slow down or stop compromised connections or devices within a network without disrupting normal business operations.

The information & Cyber Risk management security solutions of Infosys use analytics and automation that are driven by artificial intelligence (AI) to catalyse security transformations that pre-empt security breaches and enable collaboration across dispersed security teams.
