Charlotte Lunch & Learn: How AI/ML is Evolving to Address Top Security Challenges

July 11, 2019

Conventional tools only combat known attacks. As our world becomes more and more complex, multiple variables contribute to an increasing number of breaches. The incredible increasing volume of data. Outsourced Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) Operations are mostly failing at preventing breaches. Alert Overload. Lack of Security Professionals. Lack of subscribing to and managing environments to a Security Framework. Average time to fully contain a breach is lengthening. The cost of a breach remains very expensive. The length of time to identify a breach is barely improving. Efficacy of Conventional Security tools averages only 85%. Almost every company needs more money for cybersecurity but won’t get it.

For each of the above challenges there are new approaches that need to be understood and potentially leveraged to reduce risk. We’ll discuss these issues and how we can leverage the latest advances in AI/ML to turn this trend around.

Who Should Attend

CIO, CTO, CISO, VP IT, VP Infrastructure, CFO
