Hype and Reality: Practical Advice for Implementing and Evaluating AI/ML for Cybersecurity
Despite the hype, AI has not been the cybersecurity silver bullet many hoped it would be. Cyber defenders are still faced with increasingly sophisticated attackers, the rapidly growing complexity of modern IT infrastructures, and a persistent talent shortage exacerbated by The Great Resignation. But that doesn't mean that AI is without merit. In this session, Chris Thomas, Senior Security Advisor at ExtraHop will separate the hype from reality, presenting real-world examples of where AI/ML is feasible and beneficial, where it has challenges and limitations as it exists today, and concrete advice on how to evaluate and implement AI-based technologies.
