The AI and Human Element Security Sentiment Study

Jun 17, 2020

How Two Powerful Forces Can Tackle Our Biggest Application Security Challenges

The "AI and Human Element Security Sentiment Study" is based on a survey of 102 industry professionals at the RSA Conference 2020. The research revealed that while over half of organizations use artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning in their security stack, nearly 60 percent are still more confident in cyberthreat findings verified by humans over AI.

The survey responses, along with the theme of "Human Element" at RSA Conference 2020, reflect the need for security organizations to incorporate both AI-and human-centric offerings, especially in the application security space. Three-quarters of respondents use an application security tool, and more than 40 percent of those application security solutions use both AI-based and human-based verification.
