Some of their potential malicious uses of AI include:

  1. Cracking biometric security systems
  2. Infiltrating social networks
  3. Creating deepfake video/audio/photos for manipulating users

Our recommendations:

  1. Be prepared for more pernicious AI-powered cyberattacks.
  2. Adopt zero-trust principle, trust nothing and verify everything.
  3. Deploy multifactor and adaptive authentication across infrastructure and endpoints
  4. Implement Machine Learning and AI in predicting, detecting and preventing cyberattacks.
