GET F'IT: Will machine learning & AI strengthen or be a threat to cyber security?

With the rising incidence of cyber-attacks, the need for cyber security within financial institutions is evident! Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) can potentially play a vital role in combatting these attacks.
Ransomware, web-based attacks, and identify/payment card thefts have seen an immense increase in 2017 and are costly for organizations if not resolved quickly. AI and ML potentially offers solutions to combat these attacks by detecting threats, reducing response time, and refining techniques to distinguish attacks that require immediate attention.
At this session we will explore the possibilities of AI & ML in terms of cyber security and dig deeper into this increasingly important topic. Further, we will discuss how AI & ML can be used to categorize normal/abnormal behavior and discuss the implications and potential risks that AI and ML poses.
