The present study is based on the analysis of the concepts of Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence, focusing on how both relate to each other. The COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that the world was forced into confinement had a huge impact on the increase of cyber-attacks and the birth of new threats. Currently, Cybersecurity is becoming an extremely complicated task, as we can no longer think of blocking an attack only by resorting to humans. The advanced and automated ways in which attacks have been developing mean that the task of defence must also be automated. Artificial Intelligence, due to its particularities, meets this need. This technology has been playing an increasingly important role in Cybersecurity, even though we may still consider it to be at an early stage
