Is AI a Friend or Foe of Cyber Resilience?

AI will be a super power for enterprise security efforts. But it will also empower attackers. 

The fast rise of AI — especially consumer-facing generative AI — is one of the biggest business stories of the year. It’s creating exciting new opportunities but also accelerating risks. The digital transformation journey for all enterprises in every industry is ramping up previously unforeseen risk management challenges for security leaders during a period of budget tightening. 

Wipro’s State of Cybersecurity Report 2023 (#SOCR) tells the story of how enterprise security has developed — particularly with the transition to the cloud. The cloud transition and other trends have opened numerous opportunities for operational efficiencies and revenue growth at scale, while exposing the enterprise to new and unexpected technology and regulatory risks.

We unpack the facts and stats from the 2023 SOCR and discuss how to achieve cyber resilience in an age of continuous disruption.
