The iGaming ecosystem is rapidly integrating AI to help stop intrusions

The last few years have seen a large increase in cyberattacks, especially on the systems of some casinos around the country. However, to the relief of the iGaming industry, the advent of technology implemented through artificial intelligence (AI) has come as a protective shield that can prevent many attacks that leave casinos unable to operate for weeks at a time.

Security operations teams tend to have several drawbacks with data management, and that is security alert processing can sometimes become so high that they can miss signals indicating an attack. According to a recently conducted study, data science-driven tools, including AI, deep learning and machine learning, can lead to a significant impact in preventing unknown threats and reducing false positives.

The gambling market has undoubtedly become a very attractive target for hackers, and this makes casinos constantly challenged, trying to protect their data as much as possible. It has been determined that humans cannot keep up with the exponential pace of cybersecurity threats, but with the help of AI, this problem could come to an end.

Experts indicate that the automation provided by this technology is the only way to address cyber-attacks, as it can be programmed in such a way that it serves as a protective shield so that attacks do not continue to wreak havoc on casinos systems. With AI, security professionals would save a quarter of their time, freeing them to focus on identifying and preventing upstream threats. Likewise, they would no longer have to deal with those alerts that turn out to be faked and didn’t even exist in the first place. There is no doubt that the combination of AI, machine learning and deep learning is vital in the fight against cyberattacks in the iGaming space.
