Protecting your organization’s financial data is one of your highest priorities as a tech professional. Unfortunately, this is much more difficult than it sounds. That’s because cybercriminals have so many ways to break into your system and steal information. Although the popular perception of hacking is someone hunched over a keyboard trying to break through a firewall, that’s only one of the methods they employ. They also can sneak in through gaps in your security due to misconfigured systems, or sneak malware into your servers that does the work for them. Hackers also may trick unwitting employees to give up their passwords through phishing schemes. Cybercrime is a 24/7 threat, which calls for an equally relentless solution. 

Fortunately, artificial intelligence can be the answer you’re looking for to keep your system safe. When integrated into your security measures, you can have cybersecurity measures that are always on guard, learning from every encounter and becoming stronger with every passing moment. For example, it can identify phishing emails before they reach employees’ inboxes, quarantining them so no one accidentally opens them or clicks any links or attachments they contain. AI also works to keep data encrypted even while it’s being analyzed, keeping unauthorized users from seeing it. 

If your current cybersecurity suite doesn’t include artificial intelligence, there’s a good chance that you’re behind the times. If you want to learn more about how AI can strengthen your systems and keep your financial data safe, take a look at the accompanying resource.
