We talk a lot about the proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) in the business world as well as in our personal lives–the ease and efficiency it brings to any project, as well as the insights it can provide with much more speed than the human brain. However, there are many professionals who are concerned about the risks in relation to cyber security that comes with AI. This interesting topic came to us from Tech Republic in their article, “91% of cybersecurity pros fear hackers will use AI to attack their company.”

AI has long proven its benefits, even to fight cyber crime. While the technology can help companies fill cyber security skills gaps and safeguard data, it can also give hackers a new tool for attack. It’s important to keep in mind that we aren’t the only one who has AI and know how to use it – so do the thieves.
