Debunking Myths About AI in Cybersecurity

AI has become a buzzword that often evokes a mix of awe, doubt and even fear, especially when it comes to cybersecurity. However, the fact is that if used effectively AI can revolutionise the way businesses like yours operate.

That’s why you must cut through the noise and separate fact from fiction if you want to leverage AI effectively. In this blog, we’ll debunk some common misconceptions about AI in cybersecurity. Let’s dive in.

AI in cybersecurity: Fact from Fiction

Myth: AI is the cybersecurity silver bullet
Fact: AI isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for cybersecurity. While it can efficiently analyse data and detect threats, it’s not an easy fix for everything. You can use AI security solutions as part of a multi-pronged cybersecurity strategy to automate tasks, pinpoint complex threats and assist your IT security professionals.

Myth: AI makes your business invincible
Fact: Cybercriminals are always finding new ways to exploit your IT systems, and it’s only a matter of time before they discover ways to breach AI solutions as well. AI alone can’t protect your business. Think of AI as a top-notch security system that is made better through regular vulnerability updates and staff education.

Myth: AI is a perfect tool and always knows what it’s doing
Fact: Don’t trust all the marketing gimmicks around AI. Yes, AI security is indeed a “super cool” tool. But keep in mind that AI is still an evolving technology, and there’s much to be perfected. Some companies make loud claims about their AI security tools. An honest vendor, however, will tell you that AI is not magic. If you give it time, AI can learn and adapt on its own.

Myth: AI does everything on its own
Fact: AI doesn’t fly solo! While AI is great at sniffing out suspicious activities, it still requires human intervention. You can set the goals for AI, analyse what it finds and make the final call on security decisions. There are also times when AI can sound the alarm for no reason; that’s when you need the expertise of your security team to say, “False alarm!”

Myth: AI is for big companies with deep pockets
Fact: AI security solutions are now within reach for businesses of all sizes as they are becoming more affordable and easier to use. Moreover, the availability of cloud-based AI solutions means that businesses, regardless of their size, can leverage AI without breaking the bank.
