Paul Delahunty, Information Security Officer, speaks to Newstalk about neural networks, cultivating a cybersecurity ethos and having a secure online backup solution in place. He explains how neural networks use artificial intelligence to analyse patterns, note unusual words and react to them. This, Paul says, enables organisations to bolster their defences.
He discusses the contrast between neural networks and the traditional approach which would look at key words and static patterns. The issue with this approach, he explains, is that attackers could easily learn what words were being detected and adjust their strategy accordingly. Paul also touches on the value of secure online backups and recommends that companies look into purchasing cyberattack insurance.
