The Fundamental Flaw in Today’s Cybersecurity Model

The current cybersecurity model has a fundamental flaw in that it relies on the operating system or kernel it is protecting to ensure its own integrity.

This flaw exists because operating systems have so much code that it is impossible to proactively secure them and rewriting applications to adapt to a new infrastructure is costly. This flaw is often ignored because it is seen as the norm, but attackers will use AI-assisted attacks to exploit it. This flaw leads to negative outcomes such as emergency patches, disruption to software release schedules, and increased costs for compensating controls and consultants. Attempts to address this flaw, such as using beacons in EDR software or stripping down the operating system, have been ineffective. The state of cybersecurity is worsening, with infrastructural and app vulnerabilities becoming the top attack vectors.

The rise of zero-day and n-day vulnerabilities is a direct result of this flaw. In the near future, Generative-AI exploits will significantly increase the level of exploits. Therefore, it is crucial to find a solution to this flaw to secure the vast amount of data humanity produces.
