Relevance: 

AI can help deliver better cybersecurity solution, we can learn from past events, threat vectors and behaviors of AI enabled attack to counter them with AI enabled solutions. In today's world where cybersecurity threats against democratic institutions can disrupt the course of history with far more impact on the lives of citizens, we can use AI to reduce the risks, learn from threat vectors and harden the threat surface area.

Session Content: 

We see a lot of automated and increasingly sophisticated social engineering attacks. The rise of AI-enabled cyberattacks is expected to cause an explosion of network penetrations, personal data thefts, and an epidemic-level spread of intelligent computer viruses. The best hope to defend against AI-enabled hacking is by using AI. This talk will go into details of some of the AI-enabled threat vectors and the AI based mitigation strategies and tools.
