The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in different domains is continuously growing. In particular for cybersecurity, we can see the implementations of AI solutions, e.g. machine learning, in a wide range of applications from various domains. While some consider this step as risk for cybersecurity, others agree that it is in fact a solution to many issues as well. This leads to a higher necessity of having a right understanding as well as handling of cybersecurity controls that enforce meeting domain, project and application specific security targets. This implies that more efforts and resources have to be focused and invested towards cybersecurity. One reason for this is that attackers (threat agents) may integrate AI based algorithms and AI based evaluation of data, which forces the security staff to respond at a similar level. Thus, we are considering AI as a potential solution for satisfying a set of rising needs and objectives. In this paper, we present the concept for merging and integration of these three major domains and applications. Also, we detail the relevant motivations, requirements and challenges to be considered when coming to such combination.
