Corridor Africa addresses escalating cybersecurity threats on telecoms infrastructure

Corridor Africa emphasises the importance of integrating AI into cybersecurity defence strategies. AI-driven cybersecurity solutions significantly enhance threat detection, automated response capabilities, and system protection, fortifying the resilience of organisations against cyber threats.

Cybersecurity has become a major concern for everyone, especially as malicious actors are increasingly leveraging AI technologies to target and compromise the stability and security of telecom infrastructures, amplifying financial losses and operational disruptions.

Corridor Africa CEO Matone Ditlhake reiterates the pressing need to protect telecom infrastructure against increasing cyber threats. “The utilisation of AI algorithms to launch network congestion attacks, similar to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and exploit network vulnerabilities, poses a significant threat.”

“AI technologies offer advanced capabilities for threat detection, automated response, and system protection by analysing vast amounts of data, including network traffic, system logs, user activity, and malware signatures. Machine learning algorithms are employed to detect and identify potential risks, aiding in proactive monitoring and alerting of security teams through intrusion detection and prevention systems,” he explains.

Furthermore, AI approaches establish baselines of typical behaviour, enabling the detection of abnormal activities and assisting in uncovering insider threats or zero-day attacks. It is also effective in identifying and mitigating malware attacks by studying code samples, network traffic, and behavioural patterns, enhancing detection speed and accuracy to keep up with evolving threats.

“As the threats in cyberspace continue to evolve, Corridor Africa remains committed to staying at the forefront of cybersecurity innovation. We advocate for responsible AI use and encourage collaboration across industries to ensure a secure digital landscape for all,” he concludes.
