Thought Leadership - 3:55 pm - 4:20 pm

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are introducing new technologies to a wide array of products across every industry, especially cybersecurity. Facial recognition and natural language processing have become a reality thanks to deep learning algorithms, however, there is a dark side to these advancements. Cybercriminals have managed to weaponize AI to create extremely intricate malware and attack methods. This has forced organizations to use advanced heuristic solutions rather than counting on known vulnerability and attack signatures. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Artificial Intelligence products are already being deployed in many industries  
  2. Features like facial recognition and chat bots are common examples 
  3. Cybercriminals can weaponize this technology without proper security measures
