NTXISSA October 2017 Monthly Meeting

October 19, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$10 – $30




Endpoint security is a challenge and a necessity for all organizations. Traditional signature based anti-virus is no longer enough to protect companies from the ever-increasing number of zero day exploits and ransomware. This talk will focus on how predictive AI has become an imperative to endpoint security and how it is being used to stay ahead of the changing threat landscape. The goal of endpoint prevention is to move as far ‘left of bang’ as possible to stop a threat in its tracks, preferably pre-execution before it can cause damage. What is needed is predictive prevention – a technology that can stop unknown threats without any need for signatures, heuristics, behavior, reputation, cloud look-ups, malware analysis, human interaction, or any temporal delay whatsoever. As we enter this 4th Industrial Revolution known as Predictive Artificial Intelligence, it is time for organizations to take back the rarest resource of all in our battle against the ever-changing threat: TIME ITSELF

Some of the takeaways from the talk will be:

*Why the biggest benefit artificial intelligence provides to humanity is prediction?* Real-world examples of how AI was months or even years ahead in preventing some of the worst advanced persistent threat (APT) campaigns

* Summary of research demonstrating how AI would have prevented APTs without any ‘patient zeros’ in the wild, and without reliance on traditional research, malware analysis, threat intelligence or human expertise

* How Predictive AI can also be used when conducting compromise assessments and during incident containment engagements like the OPM breach

* The net operational impact to organizations that leverage predictive AI early on in the cyber kill chain.
