Topic: Will AI and ML Play a Role in the Future of Cybersecurity?
Abstract: With the great shift in IT infrastructure due to the introduction of various novel technologies such as cloud, IoT, blockchain, etc., a new frontier has emerged for threat actors and cybersecurity teams, where many vulnerabilities are yet to be discovered. With security boundaries being starch across different platforms and a large number of devices, implementing security solutions will become a tedious process. The increasing quantity and variety of security threats further aggravate the strain on security. As cyberthreats become smarter and more evasive, security capabilities must evolve with the help of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning). AI & ML technologies can not only deploy patches speedily with the help of bots but can also calculate and assign a risk score to actions and devices as part of behavioral monitoring. Allowing AL & ML to access the existing data sets will allow algorithms to identify anomalies quickly, thus, helping with real-time monitoring and spot detection of intrusions. This webinar aims to assess the degree of reliability of cybersecurity capabilities in AI and ML technology.
- How AI & ML will help access management capabilities
- Role of AI & ML in intrusion and malware detection
- Use of AI & ML for user behavioral analysis
- Importance of supervised and unsupervised learning toward improving security capabilities
