AI for Your Secure Network: Advantages of Using Artificial Intelligence to Maximize the Security of Your Data

Author: Lou Gabos, Ph.D.

As Artificial Intelligence becomes increasingly popular, security experts are taking full advantage of implementation to secure their systems. While you may have an internal IT team dedicated to the maintenance of your system, Qualus Power Services Technology expert, Lou J. Gabos, Ph.D. shares how using AI can serve as an extension to your team and help secure your data.

Learning User Behavior

A benefit of using AI is the ability to learn the employee’s standard computer routine. AI systems contain a Neural Network, which is a perpetual learning machine that becomes smarter the more it is used. It gathers information about the daily routine of an individual working on their computer. Having now learned this pattern of use, it can now detect what is not considered “normal” and notify the IT team of suspicious activity. 

Identifying Unusual Activity

AI systems can also be used to monitor a network to detect abnormal activity, such as non-standard log in times or attempts to access highly sensitive systems by accounts. These events can trigger alert notices to the IT team for further investigation. For example, an account that is logging on at 3 a.m. and attempts to access the financial systems is a good indicator of an account that may have been compromised by bad actors. Another instance would be detecting unusually large volumes of data being transferred.

Cyber security is a non-negotiable requirement at Qualus. Our commitment to safety goes beyond physical health and includes the safety of our clients and their information assets as well. Qualus remains vigilant around the clock to securely protect the data they have been entrusted with.
