Cybersecurity in an AI-turbocharged Era

This paper focuses on the real contributions and risks an AI technology poses in cybersecurity world.

On one hand, the adoption of AI can have a profound transformative effect on various technical capabilities used in cybersecurity, such as detection, scanning for unknown vulnerabilities or assisting with configuration of protective tools. On the other hand, there is not only a potential risk of misuse of an AI by malicious actors, but also a set of limits and challenges: requirements for high quality training sets, the risk of high false-positive rates, the need for updates and expert human oversight, and some more.

The paper walks readers through what does it mean to have a balanced approach that combines AI with expert human oversight to ensure the development of effective and reliable cybersecurity solutions.

In this paper, you can explore how ESET integrated a precisely selected set of AI algorithms into its detection engine, turning it into a highly effective protective machine with high detection rates and minimal false positives. Moreover, you can learn about how AI aids ESET Threat Intelligence and threat hunting capabilities, pointing ESET experts to interesting attack scenarios and malware features.
