How to Transform Your Security Investigations Harnessing the Power of AI
With major cyber threats coming out almost every month, it is easy to think that the bad guys are winning. It’s not just your computer or data that is at risk, today’s cyber attacks cripple businesses and threaten lives. Maybe the good guys need a new kind of ally, one who relentlessly learns and adapts to evolving threats. What if we could enlist a super computer with Artificial Intelligence(AI) to help the good guys?
Using Machine Learning and cognition, a Cognitive Computer can constantly understand, learn, and reason. At unprecedented scale, it can help the good guys with the intelligence, speed and accuracy gaps in the cyber arms race. Unlike most security tools, which can’t make sense of human generated unstructured knowledge found in blogs and articles, a cognitive security platform can open our eyes to near real-time malware research and identify zero-day threats. During this session, we will discuss the potential power of AI to be used as a tool in your organization’s defenses against cyber threats and minimizing business risks.
