AI can deliver ‘faster better cheaper’ cybersecurity

The new era of cybersecurity is coming. Artificial intelligence can completely change the situation even in this field.

There are “significant challenges” in commercialising artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in cybersecurity, according to Simon Ractliffe, head of cybersecurity at Singtel Optus. “This capability holds the best opportunity for us, in terms of detection and response, but what we know is that there’s a lot to do in terms of making this detection and response to the point where it’s at industrial strength,” he told the SINET61 cybersecurity innovation conference in Melbourne on Wednesday. “It has to be truly safe to rely on … but the opportunities are just spectacular.”

Singtel Optus is looking at reducing the time taken from detecting a cybersecurity event to its eventual resolution, as well as reducing the unit cost. “We need to be able to make good cybersecurity services accessible to small and medium businesses, and consumers, and so we see a great opportunity in that regard,” Ractliffe said. “Bluntly, we can see ‘better faster cheaper’ means of delivering cybersecurity through artificial intelligence and automation.” Australia’s defence scientists are also turning to AI techniques in the military’s increasingly complex networked environment. “When we look at a system like a warship, it is now completely networked … so that in itself creates a vulnerability,” said Australia’s Chief Defence Scientist Dr Alex Zelinsky at the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG).
