With all their potential for use, the two hottest topics in business, science and technology are artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

That’s why companies are seemingly investing unlimited funds for AI and ML. In terms of cybersecurity, ML is the standard faction of AI that’s used.

ML has the potential to deliver immense support to an information technology or security team. That’s the kind of support that can help lighten their load and help save time and resources in the long run.

However, it’s crucial to note that ML is not invulnerable and still requires human oversight.

“Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.”

Before it can handle higher-level responsibilities by itself without human supervision, ML technology still needs further development.

Still, there are many things it can help with and manage in order to enhance your cybersecurity.
