Breakout: Artificial Intelligence – Time Bomb Or The Promised Land?

Companies have AI projects. Security products use AI to keep attackers out and insiders at bay. But what is this “AI” that everyone talks about? In this talk we will explore what artificial intelligence in cyber security is, where the limitations and dangers are, and in what areas we should invest more in AI. We will talk about some of the recent failures of AI in security and invite a conversation about how we verify artificially intelligent systems to understand how much trust we can place in them.
Alongside the AI conversation, we will discover that we need to make a shift in our traditional approach to cyber security. We need to augment our reactive approaches of studying adversary behaviors to understanding behaviors of users and machines to inform a risk-driven approach to security that prevents even zero day attacks.
