From Detection to Prediction: AI-powered SIEM for Proactive Threat Hunting and Risk Mitigation

Main Article Content

Srinivas Reddy Pulyala


The evolution of cybersecurity has witnessed a transformative shift from reactive defense measures to proactive threat-hunting and risk-mitigation strategies. In response to the rapidly evolving threat landscape, the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools has emerged as a crucial solution. Historically, SIEMs primarily aggregated security data but struggled to analyze the vast, complex datasets effectively. The integration of AI, especially Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL), revolutionized these systems. AI algorithms enable SIEMs to extract meaningful insights from massive datasets, allowing for the identification of subtle anomalies and hidden threats that may not be detected by traditional detection methods. This transition marks a fundamental shift from simple data aggregation to intelligent analysis, empowering SIEMs to move beyond detection toward
proactive threat hunting. This paper highlights the role of AI in predicting threats, leveraging historical data to forecast potential risks, and continuously learning to adapt to evolving threat landscapes. It also explores the real-world use cases of AI-powered SIEMs in proactive threat hunting and risk mitigation.
