Cybersecurity Operations Center; Designing the Artificial Intelligence Security Operations Center

In the future artificial intelligence security operations centers will be the norm. Will they replace security personnel completely? It appears that way to me and many other observers. Nevertheless, in a time of increasing cyber crimes one must ensure that all security measures are in place.

Artificial intelligence will combine both the old and the new to enable one to leverage human wisdom with computer analytics. The human security expert will be able to see patterns and understand what is going on, but once it is over he will have to leave the system to let the software take over. He would not want to re-live the events that transpired. An analyst could spend hours analyzing data from thousands of systems and still not fully understand everything.

With access to terabytes of data from a variety of sensors and platforms an AI will be able to map the data. Then it can make decisions about actions based on its own understanding of how the data has been analyzed. It will not make the same mistakes that it would if it was trying to decipher thousands of files of information from various devices. It will discard conclusions that are wrong and accept new, more accurate ones. It will learn. It will continue to learn as the number of days, months and years it spends training itself increases.

As it learns and improves it will be able to act in an automatic fashion. It will be safer. It will be more cost effective. One day it may be able to have an idea that human security professionals are about to breach into a data center and therefore have a better idea how to protect the data before it is stolen. If you are in a business that depends on keeping your information secure then an artificial intelligence security operations center is one of the best investments you can make.

Humans may never achieve the goal of creating an artificially intelligent system that is as good as a human at choosing the right targets and eliminating threats once they are identified. It is human error and oversight that cause the most problems for such systems. An artificial intelligence security operations system will never make the same mistakes. It will monitor itself to ensure that it is doing its job as best as possible and then take the appropriate action.

It cannot be overemphasized how important it is to increase cyber security around the world. Our country is one of the leading nations in the world when it comes to computer hacking. It is imperative that we find and eliminate every possible avenue of attack, even the use of artificial intelligence to protect ourselves. We must work as a team and work together towards a common goal.

Our country needs to work much harder at building cyber capability, and we need to work much smarter to achieve our goals. If we build artificial intelligence systems with the best of them in the world, we will indeed achieve the impossible. The ultimate goal for an artificial intelligence security operations center is to keep itself up-to-date and one step ahead of the attackers and hackers. Never let any doubts exist about their level of competency or competence. Never underestimate the threat. And most importantly, never say never if it is likely that they will fail you.

I have no doubt that the United States of America has the best intelligence, and the best cyber capabilities anywhere on the planet. However, that is not enough. We must partner very closely with other nations, and we must do all we can to partner up with the Russians and Chinese and the others. If we partner up with them, then they will work alongside us and help us defeat the hackers and the cyber-criminals and we will have peace in the cyber world. However, if we do not work very hard at partnering with each other, who knows what we might lose? So, I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
