Terry Halvorsen, former chief information officer at the Defense Department, has said he believes artificial intelligence will play a role in cybersecurity efforts as security professionals and programmers work to protect DoD networks from potential cyber threats, Defense Systems reported Thursday.

“I think within the next 18-months, AI will become a key factor in helping human analysts make decisions about what to do,” Halvorsen said.

He said he thinks it would be difficult for humans to “keep pace” due to the volume of cyber threats, Kris Osborn wrote.

Halvorsen noted that AI could help security professionals alter the configuration of networks in the event of a cyber attack, the report added.
