While there is value in leveraging Artificial Intelligence for modeling and analytics to detect cyber threats and fraud, security professionals are still more likely to indicate that a human touch is more valuable. A recent survey found that half of organizations are making use AI or machine learning but 60 percent put more trust in findings verified by humans. Meanwhile, changing consumer patterns and the rush to work from home in response to the pandemic has likely led to higher rates of false positives.
This isn’t to say AI and ML are not important – they are. In the same survey, 65% said these tools allow them to focus more on preventing cyber attacks than before and 40% reported feeling less stress.
