Modern businesses are bombarded with cyber threats every day. From ransomware to business email compromise, supply chain attacks to social engineering, the number and sophistication of intrusions is at a level never seen before - and human-scale responses can no longer cope.
Artificial intelligence is increasingly useful for not just identifying incoming attacks, but responding to them nearly instantaneously without impacting day-to-day business. And when criminals are using their own AI systems, its use becomes even more important.
In this webseminar we will discuss the major vulnerabilities facing companies today, with case studies and examples showing how hackers are exploiting new technologies to threaten even companies with a supposedly strong security posture. It's not all doom and gloom, though: we'll also look at the actions you can take to defend yourself.
What are the major threats facing firms today?
Where are existing responses falling short?
Where and how can autonomous systems address vulnerabilities?
