The AI4Business Summit challenged us to present an overview on the state of play of the use of Artifial Intelligence in the Cybersecurity Industry. By positioning  Cybersecurity in the context of Risk Management and Security, AI is being utilized already in many defense and security applications such as law enforcement and military robots and increasingly in our home office and business environments. The Cybersecurity sector itself has been applying AI and Machine Learning techniques already for nearly two decades now. With today's 240+ billion Security events happening on a daily basis, there is no longer any human capacity capable of handling these challenges. Next to automation, big data and data analysis, patterns are being recognised and alerted. These tools became the basis for the current Cybersecurity Industry major players such as McAfee, Black Carbon, Crowdstrike, IBM, ... Capturing data from different sensors is the basic premise, utilizing ML, AI in various mechanisms applying mathematical models to investigate security incidents and detect new forms of malwares, detecting the impact on major and smaller European enterprises and supporting the malware analysts in their daily operations. But equally intelligent were the malversaries by utilising AI techniques to detect the weakest links, assess when the time is right to strike into specific platforms or support local R&D teams finding the next vulnerabilities on the basis of automated detection. We've also indicated how AI is being used to evade detection and prevention techniques, or how criminals  today use data to actually master the lack of capabilities from law enforcement in a certain region. We've also positioned developments such as Deep Fake to indicate its potential impact on both the use of NLP, and its use in phising campaigns, convincing target about their welwilligness to support. Our journey ends where we started: indicating the potential for robots, but by indicating their lacking cybersecurity postures and indicating potential impact from AI, it will be a long and windy road.

Understand how AI can be supported in your concept case, and become inspired by the key learnings on algorithms, collecting data,
