Efficiency as important as efficacy for cybersecurity professionals

According to research by, the global AI in cybersecurity market is expected to reach US$57.1bn by 2028, rising at a market growth of 24.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

This, according to Reportlinker, was assisted in part at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, where widespread frauds involving the novel coronavirus and the spoofing of official institutions, like the WHO, presented additional difficulties for organisations, prompting an increase in the adoption of AI in cybersecurity.

AI-powered systems can be set up to automatically respond to dangers and combat online threats more quickly. According to the findings, analysing and improving cyber risks as well as cyber-attacks is no longer a task on a human scale as the business attack surface develops and changes. To accurately quantify risk, up to highly-varying signals must be handled, based on the scale of the organisation.

Neural networks as well as other AI tools and techniques have emerged in response to this unprecedented challenge to aid information security teams in protecting sensitive data, decrease the risk of breaches, and enhance their security posture through more efficient and effective threat detection as well as threat removal features.

“The cybersecurity workforce shortage has elevated the need for efficiency to be as important as efficacy as security professionals aim to stay ahead of a constant barrage of complex, competing and evolving threats,” said Frank Dickson, Group Vice President, Security and Trust at IDC. “Added controls, workflow improvements and contextual nuance provide organisations with the ability to act quickly in detecting and responding to endpoint threats and are in desperate need by an industry facing a critical talent gap.”
