SUNNYVALE, Calif. and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Jan. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in cyber risk management, today announced that its CEO, Srinivas Mukkamala, Ph.D. will present a session called “Advanced Cyber Security: Data-driven Defense,” as part of the BrightTalk Summit, an online event beginning January 16, 2018 at 9am PST.


Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and CEO of RiskSense, is a recognized expert on artificial intelligence (AI) and neural networks. He was part of a think tank that collaborated with the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community on applying these concepts to cybersecurity problems. Dr. Mukkamala was also a lead researcher for CACTUS (Computational Analysis of Cyber Terrorism against the U.S.) and holds a patent on Intelligent Agents for Distributed Intrusion Detection System and Method of Practicing.


The attack surface of enterprises is growing exponentially with the adoption of cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, making it humanly impossible to process the massive amounts of data continuously being generated by security tools. Fortunately, new data-driven approaches that incorporate AI and machine learning are reshaping vulnerability and threat management. In this session, Dr. Mukkamala will discuss how AI can be used to assess and prioritize vulnerabilities based on their actual exploitability, risk impact and the IT environment. He will explain the success factors for implementing AI-driven risk prioritization including the need for reliable data and the role of weaponization analysis to isolate threats that require immediate remediation.


Tuesday, January 16 at 9 AM PST


Online presentation, delivered to your digital device.
