Elon Musk and Steven Hawking have made waves talking about artificial intelligence (AI) and the risk it poses to human civilization. With cyberattacks already at an all-time high – and an expanded threat surface raising vulnerabilities – hackers are now turning up the heat. They’re using AI and machine learning (ML) to support their work, too, and the risk for business has never been greater.
In “Security Implications from the Rise of the Machines,” CyberFortress CEO Bret Piatt draws on decades of R&D and cyber leadership to show how AI and ML are giving bad actors an early advantage when carrying out attacks. He discusses how hackers use the technology to expedite time-consuming processes and maximize damage before being discovered. He examines cyber changes in key areas from hackbots to social media phishing. Most importantly, Piatt illustrates how companies can effectively defend against threats with AI/ML powered tools of their own, training, re-platforming security ops, rapid patching and more.
