AI & Cybersecurity: Rebalancing a SOC Analysts Tasks

The hype cycle for artificial intelligence (AI) is in full swing and there is much confusion over what AI can do for cybersecurity. Unlike past attempts to build useful AI, we’re already seeing significant differences in available and upcoming technology. Advances in all areas of machine learning and AI are coming fast, enabled by the exponential growth of processing power and the prevalence of off-the-shelf libraries and algorithms.

Self-driving SOCs Will Progress Much Like Autonomous Cars

Analysts in enterprise Security Operations Centers (SOCs) are a lot like drivers on a long journey. They stare at screens or through windshields for hours on end, trying to identify and respond to any potential threats or hazards. Even the best of them struggle with boredom, fatigue, and frustration. And their own biases and expectations influence the way they interpret the information that comes at them.
