Artificial intelligence is one valuable weapon in the arsenal as it can handle certain tasks faster and more efficiently than can human beings.
That's why many security pros still want the human element to play a significant role in their security defense, according to a survey from WhiteHat Security.
Based on a survey of 102 industry professionals conducted at the RSA Conference 2020, WhiteHat's "AI and Human Element Security Sentiment Study" found that more than half of the respondents are using AI or machine learning in their security efforts.
More than 20% said that AI-based tools have made their cybersecurity teams more efficient by eliminating a huge number of more mundane tasks.
Incorporating AI doesn't take human beings out of the security equation; just the opposite.
