About Reducing the Impact of Cyber Attacks with AI, Threat Hunting Humans and Collective Defence

Today’s highly sophisticated hackers are on a relentless mission – teaming up to launch coordinated, targeted, and damaging attacks across the global digital landscape.

As organisations mature their cyber security investments, malicious attacks continue to innovate, slip past our defences, and compromisour network security. To add to this complex challenge, the Sunburst attack further highlighted how our supply chain exponentially grows our cyber risk at a scale and speed that we can’t defend alone.  

In our efforts to combat advanced cyber attackersorganisations are looking to operationalise artificial intelligence to increase visibility across their network, reduce the impact of cyber attacks, and improve the effectiveness of their cybersecurity investments. 

Join this boardroom to learn how AI and Machine Learning can strengthen cybersecurity defense and augment four key areas of your cybersecurity program.

Benefits of Attending

  • Accelerate the productivity of cybersecurity specialists as the ratio of network traffic volume to analysts grows more and more disproportionate
  • Improve detection capabilities with network behavioral analytics, complemented by cyber analysts who can validate and rate alerts
  • Broaden visibility across the threat landscape with a collective defense response to detected threats
  • Leverage shared network data (anonymized and encrypted in transit) to collectively amplify threat detection
