What is Natural Language Processing?
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a field of computer science that uses Machine Learning to teach computers to process and understand human language. Natural Language Processing analyzes text and is used in cybersecurity to detect threats. NLP algorithms can identify the urgent language used in social engineering attempts, as well as the flag words and phrasing typically used in spear-phishing attacks, also known as business email compromise (BEC).
