Darktrace and MIT Technology Review Release Co-branded Whitepaper

Darktrace, a world leading cyber AI company, in collaboration with MIT Technology Review, released a whitepaper that assesses industry professionals’ views towards AI-powered attacks. At a time when cyberattacks are at an all-time high, it’s integral for companies to understand and anticipate such attacks – no matter the industry.    

The report is based on research gathered from December 2020 to January 2021 and surveyed 309 senior global business leaders; more than half were C-level executives or directors.

Key findings from the report include:  

  • How 97 per cent of respondents are concerned about AI-augmented attacks  
  • The top three reasons respondents are concerned are: 
  • Human driven response can’t keep up  
  • Security tools can’t anticipate new attacks  
  • Hiring qualified employees is difficult  
  • How 96 per cent of respondents said they had started preparing for AI- powered attacks  
  • That respondents think the top three ways AI-attacks will manifest themselves are: 
  • More advanced spear-phishing and impersonation attacks  
  • More effective ransomware  
  • Misinformation and undermining of data integrity 

The white paper is available for download here.
