In an ever-evolving technological landscape, keeping up to date is paramount. AI empowers you to process and respond to real-time information promptly enabling swift reactions to evolving scenarios, customer demands and opportunities.
While AI’s benefits assist businesses, it opens the door to additional cyber challenges and risks that must be acknowledged.
AI’s Cyber Challenges
AI-powered phishing scams
Sneaky cybercriminals employ AI-driven chatbots to create impeccable phishing emails without the usual red flags, such as grammar errors, exploiting even the most vigilant. To bolster your defense, exercise caution with emails from unfamiliar sources. Scrutinize sender details, avoid suspicious links, and employ anti-phishing tools for added protection.
Malicious AI-generated code
Cybercriminals harness AI tools for swift code generation, surpassing manual capabilities. These generated code snippets find their way into malware and other malicious software. Strengthen your defenses through layered security measures, such as firewalls, antivirus software and automated patch management and employee education.
Deepfakes and impersonations
AI-generated deepfakes can propagate misinformation, deceiving unsuspecting individuals and leading to fraud or character defamation. Malicious actors can create ultra-realistic videos using another person’s voice and image samples. Identifying deepfakes necessitates a discerning eye. Among other factors, anomalies in skin texture, blinking patterns and facial shadows help distinguish genuine content from manipulated content.
