About the Book

This book will explore the cutting-edge methodologies that blend artificial intelligence with cybersecurity. This book will offer a distinctive practical approach, offering readers actionable insights on implementing AI systems for threat detection and risk management. This book will provide a robust framework for understanding and applying AI algorithms in the context of cyber risk assessment. Incorporating case studies and real-world scenarios in this book will illustrate AI's efficacy in predicting and mitigating cyber threats. This book will be valuable for professionals applying theoretical knowledge in practical settings. This book will include valuable insights and contributions from leading experts in both AI and cybersecurity fields and offer a well-rounded perspective on the challenges and solutions in threat intelligence. This book will include the ethical and legal debates surrounding AI in cybersecurity, providing a comprehensive discourse on privacy, bias, and the evolving legal landscape.

This book will fill the gap in the current literature by providing a bridge between theoretical AI concepts and practical cybersecurity applications. This book will be at the intersection of technology and strategy, offering a unique vantage point not thoroughly explored in existing texts. This book will engage with several key debates, including the balance between automated AI-driven security measures and the need for human oversight. Additionally, it will address challenges by ensuring that AI systems in cybersecurity are not only effective but also resistant to adversarial attacks.

The research questions guiding this proposed book project include:

 

  1. What are the most effective AI methodologies for predicting, detecting, and responding to cyber threats?

  2. How can AI-driven cybersecurity tools be designed to adapt to the evolving landscape of cyber threats?

  3. How can AI contribute to the development of proactive cyber defense strategies?

  4. What ethical considerations arise from deploying AI in cybersecurity, and how can they be addressed?

  5. What are the potential risks of adversarial AI, and how can systems be defended against AI-powered attacks?

  6. How do organizations integrate AI into their cybersecurity frameworks for threat intelligence and risk management?

  7. What are the implications of AI-driven cybersecurity for future policy and regulation?

  8. How can organizations upskill their workforce to use AI in cybersecurity effectively?

  9. What are the economic implications and ROI for implementing AI in cybersecurity?

  10. How do global trends and international collaboration shape the development and implementation of AI in cybersecurity?

  11. How can businesses leverage AI specifically to enhance their risk management strategies? What types of risks (operational, reputational, financial) can AI help mitigate?

  12. How does AI contribute to Business Continuity planning, especially in preventing or mitigating cyber-attacks that could lead to significant downtime or data loss?

  13. How can SMEs adopt AI in cybersecurity effectively, given their resource constraints? What are the unique challenges and opportunities for smaller businesses?

  14. Are there unique AI applications in cybersecurity that are particularly beneficial for certain industries? How do these applications differ in terms of complexity and outcomes?

  15. How does the use of AI in cybersecurity impact customer trust, especially concerning data privacy and protection?

Note: There are NO submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book publication. This book will be submitted for possible indexation to Scopus, Web of Science, and major indices.
