What is Algorithm?

Algorithms are a basic component of all the technological advances we employ daily. And they are also an essential element in cybersecurity. 

Thus, developing advanced algorithms, which employ Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, is key in creating solutions and automatable tools which contribute to combatting threats, detecting vulnerabilities, remedying weaknesses and successfully dealing with cyberattacks. 

Thus, algorithms have become the best allies of cybersecurity professionals. But also, they’re greatest enemies if they are developed and used by malicious actors.
