AI's Crucial Role in Enhancing Cybersecurity of the Future

As National Cybersecurity Awareness Month reaches its 20th anniversary, the landscape of cybersecurity is undergoing a profound transformation, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) emerging as a powerful ally. Joshua Aaron, CEO of Aiden Technologies , emphasizes the pivotal role AI plays in enhancing cybersecurity practices, particularly in the realm of infrastructure configuration management:

“This year marks the 20th anniversary of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which aims to educate people about the value of cybersecurity and encourage good cybersecurity practices among individuals, companies and organizations.

Twenty years in, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the way that many organizations operate, especially when it comes to cybersecurity. Because AI is a developing technology and we’re still understanding its capabilities, many IT organizations have hesitated to fully deploy it. However, AI has come a long way since its first incarnations. It now has the potential to offer incredible assistance to IT security teams by helping them reduce the risk of business-critical infrastructure getting compromised via misconfigured software and devices, a core focus of CISA’s cybersecurity framework.

Traditionally, managing the configuration of software and computers is very manual, prone to human error, and slow to execute, especially for overworked IT security teams. The increased use of AI and automation in cyberattacks from misconfigured environments and their improving success rates are proof that traditional methods aren’t working, and we must innovate.

AI and automation solutions for keeping computers up to date and in compliance with an organization’s security policy have proven to be extremely effective. IT security teams are able to automatically maintain good cyber hygiene, thus freeing them up to concentrate on higher-visibility, more rewarding projects without fear of the next attack.

In honor of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, I encourage all organizations to look into how AI can help keep their critical infrastructure more secure and their data safe from threat actors; the SAFETY of our country and our commerce depends on it."
