Microsoft Copilot for Security: The great equalizer for government security

Cybersecurity for government organizations is a game of speed, with cyberattackers working to compromise networks and steal data as swiftly as possible before defenders can detect and deter them. In this ongoing battle, cyberattackers have traditionally had an asymmetrical advantage. 

From the moment a user clicks on a bad hyperlink in a malicious email, it can take as little as 72 minutes before an attacker begins to exfiltrate data. By contrast, it takes an average of 277 days for organizations to identify and contain a data breach.1 The advantage gap is widening, as nation-state-actors and cybercriminals are actively employing AI to step up their attacks. To cite just one measure: in 2023, password attacks globally increased from three billion to 30 billion per month.2

The good news is that advances in hyperscale cloud and AI technology promise to help shift the balance of cybersecurity power to the defenders. In my previous blog, I examined the strategies governments can take to minimize cybersecurity risk and advance security effectiveness with Microsoft technology. Now, I’d like to explain how Microsoft Copilot for Security offers one of the most powerful new opportunities for governments to make dramatic improvements in cybersecurity, thanks to the power of generative AI.
