AI and Automation Made for Each Other

By integrating systems that can make sense of data and machines capable of following commands, AI and automation have combined forces to create a powerful business solution. Typically, automation solutions like workflow, document capture, business-rule based decisions and RPA are designed to follow logical commands. But by adding machine learning- where computers have the ability to derive insights and learn without being programmed- with automation software, IBM solutions can anticipate and recommend next steps based on results from past actions, govern how machines act on insights from AI, and display recommendations for knowledge-workers for better outcomes. 

  1. Leverage AI to optimize knowledge work
  2. Model job roles to provide assistive automation that frees human time for higher value activities
  3. Leverage AI in transactional business applications with trust, transparency and business controls.

Is AI the future of Email Security?

Email continues to be the dominant attack vector for threat actors in today's landscape. Email security gateways have been focused and effective on widespread attacks and campaigns, but have been porous to sophisticated, highly targeted attacks. Despite significant investments into email security, Business Email Compromise (BEC) losses have nearly doubled year over year over year - from $360M in 2016 to $1.3B in 2018. This represents roughly 48% of all cybercrime losses. Combatting BEC and other socially-engineered, payload-less attacks requires a shift in mindset and approach. AI and Machine Learning have hyped technologies in security over the past several years. So the question is - Is AI the future of email security?

Behind the Scenes at Black Hat: Where Evolution is the Best Solution

This session will bring you a behind the scenes look into the network at the Black Hat Security Briefings, often called "one of the most hostile networks in the world". Does reality actually match the hype? How do you design and deploy a network that's not only stable, but secure, for 20,000 of the industry's top minds? Join one of the designers of the Black Hat NOC where he'll answer these questions and more as we discuss how the network has evolved over 20+ years to keep pace with technology, attackers, and scale. We'll also discuss some of the lessons learned from monitoring network activity at Black Hat, and what it helps us learn about the way security professionals conduct themselves on an open WiFi network. Spoiler Alert: It's poorly. We conduct ourselves poorly.

The Geopolitical Landscape's Effects on Organizations

The recent U.S. government bans against Russian-based security products and Chinese smartphones are the latest results of suspicion and distrust of competing world powers. Organizations working with government entities must be aware of the geopolitical stipulations regarding their business relationships. Even with the geopolitical landscape, the buying decisions of security products are still based on trust in the supplier. It is important for CISOs and security leaders to incorporate geopolitical risk in all business-critical software, hardware and services purchasing decisions - even if that means considering local alternatives. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Review the geopolitical landscape and how it has effected industries and organizations 
  2. What to be aware of with your buying decisions 
  3. What to anticipate and prepare for in the coming years

Machine Learning Is Here to Help, Not Replace

Over the next few years, machine learning (ML) will be a regular security practice and will offset skills and staffing shortfalls. Today though, ML is better at addressing smaller, more specific problems. Technology leaders have to understand that humans and machines complement each other and work better together than alone, as ML can assist humans in addressing uncertainty by presenting relevant information. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Discuss the ways machine learning can assist teams and organizations 
  2. How to make the right machine learning choices for your organization 
  3. The future of machine learning
