What Are The Main Types Of Cyber Security?

There are 4 types, namely:

  1. Network security: protects the connections between networks, including data transfers to and from the internet, and hardware like routers and switches
  2. Endpoint security: protects devices like laptops, phones, and servers
  3. Application security: protects software, data and access at the individual application level
  4. Cloud security: protects cloud environments and data from vulnerabilities and threat actors (source)

AI’s Role In Cyber Security

AI makes it a perfect value addition technology for cyber security because it is fundamentally a complex mathematical equation that generates outputs with new data by using existing data which enables cyber security companies to train their models with data from previous attacks to create autonomous systems that can detect if an attack is ongoing based on certain readings. This provides companies and users with a critical capability in the risk management framework, as it increases their lead time for an attack and allows them to prepare mitigation and response strategies.
