UAE organizations to boost AI for stronger cybersecurity.

Approximately 81% of CEOs in the UAE consider AI a critical component of their overall cybersecurity strategy. AI and machine learning are being used to automate and streamline security operations, preventing more risks from turning into security incidents. While 94% of UAE respondents are aware of potential cyber risks, 52% have seen an increase in cyberattacks over the past year. The report emphasizes that AI and automation, trained on quality data, are essential for staying ahead of evolving threats in the cyber landscape. The UAE is planning a long-term cybersecurity vision, and the Middle East's cybersecurity market is projected to reach $31 billion by 2030.

AI experts at the World Economic Forum's Global Future Councils meeting in Dubai on October 17, emphasize that AI is not a one-size-fits-all solution for businesses, shedding light on its limitations.
Stuart Russell, a computer science professor, stresses that while AI has potential, it's not a new technology and can't address every business challenge.
He advises caution against the notion of AI as a universal solution, raising the need for businesses to discern where AI genuinely adds value and where human intervention remains crucial.
These insights underscore the importance of thoughtful AI implementation in various business contexts, empowering companies to leverage its potential effectively.
