In part, because hybrid and remote workplaces are the new normal for most companies, the sophistication of cyberattacks and the risks they pose have grown rapidly over the last few years. In fact, these new work styles have opened up a whole new set of phishing methods for threat actors.
According to Cybersecurity Ventures, global cybercrime is expected to grow by 15% per year over the next five years, costing about $10.5 billion by 2025.
Cyberspace is massive. Even though hundreds of IT experts analyze threats daily, it is a daunting task. The need for new, faster and more efficient technology arises since the human capacity to respond to emerging threats is limited. One potential solution lies in the world of artificial intelligence (AI). In this article, I’ll review a few common attack methods and how AI solutions can work against cyberattacks.
Lookalike Detection
Cybercriminals register thousands of lookalike domain names, disguising themselves as reputable brands or trusted personnel and tricking victims into submitting sensitive credentials or performing financial transactions. In this instance, cyber actors register a domain similar to that of the targeted company. They alter the URL name and create fake websites and email addresses by adding characters or replacing a single letter. (For instance, “1” for “l” and “0” for “o.”) They may also use a series of letters like “vv” for “w” and “rn” for “m.”
Typosquatting is another common tactic designed to trick the eye. Think of it as if someone registered “” instead of “” or “” instead of “”
Defending your organization from lookalike domain attacks can be difficult. Automation, machine learning and AI, brand protection solutions have evolved to offer:
