10:00 am - 10:30 am
- Open Sessions
Among rapidly evolving technological advancements, the emergence of AI-enhanced malware is making cyberattacks exponentially more dangerous and harder to identify. In the near future, we will begin to see supercharged, AI-powered cyberattacks leveraged at scale. To protect against offensive AI attacks, organizations are turning to defensive cyber AI, which can identify and neutralize emerging malicious activity, no matter when, or where, it strikes.
In this session, learn about:
• Paradigm shifts in the cyber landscape
• Advancements in offensive AI attack techniques
• The Immune System Approach to cyber security and defensive
• Autonomous Response capabilities
• Real-world examples of emerging threats that were stopped with Cyber AI

Presentation Level: GENERAL (InfoSec best practices, trends, solutions)10:45 amProtecting You from You in the Public CloudRegistration Level:
10:45 am - 11:15 am
- Open Sessions
Using public clouds for enterprise datacenters is now mainstream; the advantages are significant and the gained agility indisputable. However, the number of services and options being offered is daunting. And, with these choices come consequences; one misconfiguration can put your entire organization at risk… or worse.
Another reality you will face as you scale is the challenge of using a “one-size-fits-all”’ interface. Imagine scrolling through lists of assets when the numbers are in the hundreds or even thousands. Just imagine trying to find a misconfigured or exposed S3 bucket when you have thousands; it’s finding a needle in a stack of needles.
And, if you’re like most enterprises, you have a resource gap and don’t have the experienced, trained security professionals maintaining your cloud environment(s). This gap exacerbates risks. The cloud environments available today are extremely comprehensive and powerful, but in unskilled hands, one fat-finger can have dire consequences. And, as you implement ephemeral cloud-native services like Lambda functions and other cloud-native platform components, new challenges will arise when conducting threat-detection and attribution.
In this session, you’ll see your future and what to expect managing your public cloud-based datacenter. You’ll learn why Gartner says, “Through 2023, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” We will highlight the top challenges you will face and show you what you should prepare for before you scale. We will also detail recommended best practices for securing and maintaining compliance in your public cloud data center.10:45 amSecurity for, from, and with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence TechnologiesRegistration Level:
10:45 am - 11:15 am
- Open Sessions
As companies look to increase their operational efficiencies and competitive advantage, many are turning to machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to make better decisions faster. With this shift comes new challenges for businesses and security professionals to ensure these technologies remain effective, safe, unbiased, and ethical. Additionally, as AI and ML become more accessible to the masses, there is a growing risk that these technologies could be leveraged to launch sophisticated attacks. In this presentation, we will explore emerging threats related to AI and ML, as well as how security leaders can utilize these emerging technologies to better defend their organizations and respond to sophisticated attacks.
