Google incorporates cybersecurity into AI plan

  • Google has planned new cybersecurity products to make AI more useful and prevent people from using it for nefarious purposes, as well as to facilitate its detection.
  • Google’s cybersecurity planning and implementation began to show results last year. Google already demonstrated its focus on security last year by cancelling 333,000 malicious accounts on Google Play.
  • Google isn’t the only company combining AI and cybersecurity. Microsoft also appears to be investing in cybersecurity, including investment in the cybersecurity startup Rubrik.

With the increasing digitization of information, ensuring the security of data has become paramount.

Google’s plan

Google has developed Google Threat Intelligence, a new cybersecurity product that integrates the efforts of the Mandiant Cybersecurity Department and VirusTotal Threat Intelligence with the Gemini AI model. The new product utilises the Gemini 1.5 Pro-scale language model. Google claims that this integration will reduce the time required to mitigate malicious code attacks.
