Topic Abstract: Not so long ago, it seemed as if every vendor claimed to have found the panacea for all your security needs via Machine Learning. No matter what issue your SOC might be dealing with, odds there was at least one company out there ready to sell you some vaguely defined ML solution that would be the silver bullet you needed. However, these one-size-fits-all approaches to selling Machine Learning have done it a great disservice in the long run, obfuscating the actual value of what can be a valuable tool in your arsenal. Like most solutions, there are appropriate times and places to apply Machine Learning to your security stack to help you improve your workflow and posture.
This webinar discusses practical applications and best practices to help you get the most out of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and similar solutions and techniques.
