This presentation delves into the critical role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in fortifying cybersecurity frameworks and countering the increasing volume and complexity of cyber threats. We explore how AI-driven defensive systems can revolutionize cybersecurity by providing real-time threat detection, automated response mechanisms, and predictive analytics to preempt potential attacks. These capabilities are crucial for handling the vast and growing number of security alerts and incidents, which are beyond the capacity of human analysts alone. By automating routine tasks and enhancing decision-making processes, AI not only improves the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations but also allows human experts to focus on more strategic and complex threat analysis.
