At the International Conference on Information Technology Systems and Innovation held in Bandung, Indonesia, Blu5 has been given the opportunity to deliver a keynote speech on cybersecurity issues, sharing the view of the industry on the most effective ways of contrasting the ever-evolving threat landscape.
The question is: Is it possible to achieve a robust cybersecurity posture by investing in either detection or prevention alone?
Cyber Space is a global and borderless place where attacks may come from different sources. Therefore an innovative set of techniques and strategies is necessary to face the new cybersecurity challenges.
Over the last year, a new vision of next generation cybersecurity has emerged. It is based on a combination of innovative hardware, software and disruptive defence schemes while taking advantage of artificial intelligence, state of the art encryption and customised algorithms for government-grade national security, when required.
So, the answer to the above question is: no, should focus on both and even go beyond these traditional concepts by applying artificial intelligence.
