One technological advancement that could reduce cyber risk and stop cyberattacks is artificial intelligence (AI).
Cyberattacks are increasing in frequency and sophistication. And as a result, they are now more severely affecting organizations than ever.
We have entered a new age in cybersecurity as a result of the advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science, in which data-driven techniques are starting to fully utilize the power of machines.
This has caused a number of initiatives to arise in this area that try to reduce cyber risk. AI’s significance cannot be understated as it becomes more widely used.
Risk management needs to be proactive in today’s dynamic surroundings. Nevertheless, inadequate intelligence may prevent one from anticipating attacks and breaches.
The good news is that artificial intelligence (AI) has become an important tool for improving physical security with a more proactive approach.
How AI can help
Identifying security weaknesses: An AI-assisted security system can detect dangers that humans miss, particularly expensive internal and sophisticated attacks.
Your security team may believe a user has permission to access a location, but there are times when this may not be the case.
When a worker may present a risk with malicious intent, an AI-powered security system may “see and hear” everything from everywhere at all times by combining diverse data from the surrounding area. There are no loopholes or missed chances as a result.
Human limits are no longer a barrier to your security operation thanks to AI. Security teams will have the advantage they need when seconds matter the most because of AI’s ability to integrate, evaluate, and alert them.
While it is unrealistic to anticipate your security crew to be aware of everything that is happening at all times, an AI security system is.
Risk-Adaptive access control transformation: No physical security solutions have profited more from AI than physical access control systems.
An access control system with AI capabilities may spot unusual occurrences, insider threats, and risky scenarios, and dynamically change access rights as needed.
This innovative idea of risk-adaptive access control in physical security represents a significant advancement in the field of security.
A first reaction with the proper qualifications may be able to reach a closed area when dangerous circumstances actually exist.
Risk-adaptive access control might also stop anyone from accessing an area when a conventionally “non-obvious” danger occurs.
Removing the noise to identify genuine risk: We produce and keep a ton of video today for monitoring and analytics.
Additionally, despite the rapid advancement of video analytics techniques like facial recognition and sentiment analysis, a significant quantity of contextual data is still being disregarded. AI can be useful here.
Note that human attention span is limited, according to studies, are insufficient for efficient video monitoring and threat detection. The attention span is unbounded when a video is a part of an AI-based solution, though.
AI is never tired or sidetracked. It can sort through the unimportant and help people spot risks. Before a security breach happens, AI can find early warning signs across several data systems, compare them to the policy, and assess the level of concern.

Detect threats early with intelligence: Security personnel may become alarmed and fatigued as a result of the data flood and alarm overload.
This is brought on by an excess of false alarms and a dearth of early warnings. The alarms that operators typically receive are either incomplete or wrong when they are received.
For physical security, AI offers a new degree of spacial awareness that allows teams to get early alerts and lessen false alarms from a unified platform.
This gives every facility, controller, credentials, and sensor a common operating image. By adopting this more proactive and intelligent stance, actionable insights are provided in real-time, allowing complex and regular threats to be avoided before they become breaches.
Control risk by using intelligence: When a business deploys several layers of security tools and technologies, it may feel like you invest more time maintaining them than using them.
AI can be an empowering technology that enables you to integrate data and systems to proactively reduce risk and enhance security more successfully.
