Webinar: Adversarial ML – How Artificial Intelligence is Enabling Cyber Resilience

The cybersecurity arms race is about to get more challenging as threat actors begin utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to craft malware that’s been expressly designed to evade next-gen cyber defenses.

October 3, 2019 at 9:00 AM PDT / 12:00 PM EDT / 5:00 PM BST
Webinar length: 1 hour

Join us October 3rd when BlackBerry Cylance Security Engineer Josh Fu and Staff Data Scientist Michael Slawinski review the current state of AI, assess AI’s future, and consider the central role cyber resilience will play in the arms race between attackers and defenders. Among other topics, Josh and Michael will discuss:

  • The methods adversaries will be using to trick AI models into classifying malicious files as benign
  • How BlackBerry Cylance data scientists are responding by building resilient models that thwart adversarial AI
  • Why solving identity and authentication challenges represents the next frontier for AI technology

You won’t need a PhD in math to appreciate the significance of the data science Josh and Michael will be sharing during this important webinar.
