    Presentation Title

    A.I.: Cybersecurity Friend or Foe?

    Abstract

    Artificial intelligence (A.I.) has fast become one of the key trends in this digital frontier era capable of solving organizations’ threat detection challenges.  Cybersecurity companies are providing new ‘revolutionary’ capability in products, which, like magic, will be able to solve all security issues and protect all from every single cyberthreat out there. Indeed, A.I. and machine learning capabilities are growing at an unprecedented rate and this explosion has also become a concern to organizations, who are required to protect their valuable data assets.  These new technologies have generated many benefits, however less attention has been paid to the ways in which A.I. can also be used maliciously.  This session will look at the vexing position of A.I. 

    How does the boom in A.I. affect organizations, What is the difference between automation and A.I., IoT impact on organizational digital risk, What are the opportunities and risk in adopting A.I. in cybersecurity, 
    How can AI and Big data give us solutions to reduce the digital risk? Just as important is understanding the limitations and requirements for a successful cybersecurity A.I. implementation. Looking holistically at how AI and other technologies can increase your cybersecurity posture to help organizations remain safe and secure from cyber security incidents.
