When I think about artificial intelligence (AI), the movie Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines comes to mind. The ability of a system or systems to simulate human intelligence in a given task and produce a particular outcome is artificial intelligence in probably the most basic definition. With innovations in 2023 such as ChatGPT and other AI solutions becoming readily available, there is now a lot more awareness and acceptance of the use of artificial intelligence in achieving various objectives. One such objective is securing personal or organizational information assets, largely referred to as cybersecurity. According to NIST, the Cybersecurity Framework’s Five Functions are “Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover.” How can AI be rewarding to the security professional in practical terms for any of these domains? These are what I call the rewards of AI from a cybersecurity perspective. There are several examples of this, but for the purpose of this article, I will expound on two of these practical areas where we can leverage AI.
