NCSC warn that AI will cause ransomware threats to rise

In a busy week for cyber-related news, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), have released a warning that they anticipate global ransomware threats to rise with AI.

They have published an assessment of the near-term impact of AI on the cyber threat. In it, they conclude that AI is already being used in malicious cyber activity and this will only increase.

The report suggests that AI lowers the barrier of entry by effectively giving unskilled and novice cyber criminals and hackers access to skills that would otherwise take considerable time to develop.

NCSC therefore anticipate an increase in the volume and impact of cyber-attacks over the next 2 years and are urging businesses to implement protective measures.
