Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a growing and disruptive trend in enterprise IT that enables more agile business decision making and improves cyber security. Unfortunately, hackers are also using «AI» for malicious purposes. In this free webinar, cyber security expert Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala will explain how the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT), Software-Defined Networks (SDN), and unprotected Microservices has created a broader, more vulnerable attack surface. He will draw from proprietary RiskSense research findings to explain how hackers are using AI to identify vulnerable assets and launch exploits at scale, how AI-based attacks work, and how they are being used to disrupt business operations and sabotage industrial controls. Dr. Mukkamala will discuss how organizations can defend against these human-conceived, machine-driven, high frequency attacks.
