New artificial intelligence tools are giving operators better security over their technology

The first step to establish the best defense against a potential cyberattack is to incorporate a solution that includes preventive monitoring, user education, adequate patching, and incident management. However, today, options have been developed that can transcend this basic configuration, one of the best of which is the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI) in cybersecurity. Without a doubt, the iGaming industry is among the first to benefit.

In order to obtain a suitable tool, Mimecast Limited, a leading email security and cyber resilience company, has taken on the task of providing innovative protection solutions. It has launched its Mimecast CyberGraph solution, an AI-based platform that can help gaming operators detect phishing and spoofing attacks in a sophisticated way.

CyberGraph takes care of creating an appropriate correlation between senders and recipients, collecting this information and storing it as a pattern. Whenever anomalies are detected that are out of the system’s habit, a warning is sent so that those involved in the gambling market can stay one step ahead of the hackers. Once security specialists become aware of this, they can take appropriate action and eliminate all potential risks.

When implemented in such a way, AI security systems can help free up a great deal of time for defenders. This is one of the most important benefits it brings, as human resources in cybersecurity are not yet able to keep up with the demand. This way, the efforts of workers at an online casino, for example, can be optimized.

AI systems collaborate by categorizing attacks according to threat level; cybersecurity managers, for their part, assign the priority with which each one must be dealt with, starting with the most dangerous for the state of the casino’s information. As the technology improves, iGaming operators will have even more robust tools at their disposal, allowing them to safely protect themselves and their users.
