By developing patterns and manipulating those patterns with algorithms, Machine Learning can make cybersecurity simpler, more proactive, less expensive, and far more effective. Machine Learning can help in solving the most common tasks including regression, prediction, and classification. In the era of an extremely large amount of data and cybersecurity talent shortage, Machine Learning seems to be an only solution.
Machine Learning can significantly change the cybersecurity landscape. Traditional malware detection and malware analysis are unable to keep up with new attacks and variants. Targeted attacks and sophisticated malware have been able to bypass network and endpoint detection to deliver cyber-attacks at alarming rates. Thus, new techniques like Machine Learning should be leveraged to tackle the growing malware problem.
