SUNNYVALE, Calif. and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that its CEO, Srinivas Mukkamala, Ph.D. will present a session on how organizations can use artificial intelligence (A.I.) to implement a proactive cyber risk management strategy at the 18th Annual Cybersecurity Symposium hosted by UNC Charlotte on October 11.


Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala is co-founder and CEO at RiskSense. He is a cyber security expert on malware analytics, breach exposure management, Web application security, enterprise risk reduction, and was part of a think tank that collaborated with the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community on cyber security best practices. 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.


While A.I. can be used to bolster security defenses by analyzing vast volumes of data, the converse is also true. Malevolent A.I. can assist hackers in identifying targets and vulnerabilities to launch more targeted attacks against organizations and critical infrastructures. In this talk, Dr. Mukkamala will present a real-world case study and best practices on using A.I. as an offensive tool to identify vulnerabilities, as an attacker would, in an organization’s entire attack surface – including networks, endpoints, applications, cloud services, mobile and IoT devices, and even operational technology (OT) networks. He will also explain how to combine A.I. with human analysis to proactively predict attack susceptibility, validate whether vulnerabilities are exploitable, test the ability of existing security controls to prevent an attack, and quantify the risk to valuable assets based on diagnostic and operational data.


Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017 from 11:20 AM to 12:05 PM EDT.


UNC Charlotte, McKnight Auditorium, 9201 University City Blvd, Charlotte, North Carolina.
