Power of AI: Redefining "Cyber Attack and Defense Exercises"

The staggering number of cyberattacks reflects the top priority need for robust cybersecurity solutions across every enterprise. Committed to fortifying enterprises against evolving cyber threats, we proudly hosted the CyberSecurity ReDEFINED Conference to enable enterprises to stay ahead of threats and reinforce their defense. Within the enriching event, security experts from CITIC Telecom CPC and Fortinet engaged in illuminating discussions, drawing from their practical experiences during the first fireside chat session. They delved into the intricacies of prevalent cyberattack methods and explored how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can enhance cybersecurity strategies to counter evolving intelligent attacks.

Counter Sophisticated Cyberattacks With “Cyber Attack and Defense Exercises”

Power of AI: Redefining

In the polling session at the beginning of the first fireside chat, it was revealed that 43% of enterprises have never conducted “Cyber Attack and Defense Exercises”, suggesting that their existing cybersecurity strategy may not be sufficient to counter the ever-changing cyberattacks. Daniel Kwong, Field Chief Information Security Officer (South East Asia and Hong Kong) at Fortinet highlighted that in the first half of 2023, removable media security threats had replaced phishing attacks as the most common attack type, constituting half of all attacks. This shift was attributed to the surge in remote users due to the pandemic, as they lacked adequate security awareness, providing opportunities for hackers to exploit.

Formulating Robust Security Strategies to Enhance Employee Awareness

The biggest vulnerability in cybersecurity is human error as emphasized by Brenda Lin, Assistant Director, IT Services, Information Technology Services & Data Science at CITIC Telecom CPC. Formulating a comprehensive security strategy is crucial for enterprises, with every employee required to adhere to it strictly. In addition to conducting “Cyber Attack and Defense Exercises” to raise employee security awareness, Thomas Wong, Director of Security Services Delivery & Operations at CITIC Telecom CPC, added that enterprises must identify all IT assets, recognizing vulnerabilities to forge an effective strategy accordingly.

Cost Reduction and Efficiency Improvement With AI-powered Security Solutions

The rapid development of AI transforms cybersecurity from passive defense to proactive guardianship. According to Thomas Wong, utilizing AI algorithms in firewalls is highly effective in automatically blocking access from suspicious IP addresses and significantly reducing manual workload. To elevate security further, enhancing penetration testing with Natural Language Processing (NLP) and AI algorithms can generate new attack codes for regular automatic execution to optimize continuously which empowers enterprises in proactively addressing potential cyberattacks with unparalleled efficiency.
