Session Description:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) coupled with Machine Learning (ML) has a tremendous potential to strengthen defenses, but the benefits of ML/AI in Cybersecurity must be contextualized against the risks it poses. The usage of ML/AI has increased exponentially but security and privacy governance and policies have not expanded at the same rate; creating a rather complex governance structure for Cybersecurity personnel to operate under. The goal of this presentation and the following discussion is to identify how we, as Cybersecurity professionals, can leverage ML/AI responsibly.

Meet the Presenter:
