Cyber Security is not a job for humans: AI solutions to cyber threats

AI is ideally suited to solve some of our most difficult problems, and cybersecurity certainly falls into that category. With today’s ever evolving cyber-attacks and proliferation of devices, Machine Learning and AI can be used to “keep up with the bad guys,” automating threat detection and respond more efficiently than traditional software-driven approaches.

Cybersecurity in the Public Sector: Navigating the Threat Landscape

The public sector faces a challenging new reality when implementing today’s “boundless” infrastructures: a spiraling threat to data security. Driving this growing threat are the evolving trends of mobility, cloud computing, and advanced targeted attacks, which combine to create challenges and insomnia for IT administrators. Today’s heterogeneous network environments demand flexible, integrated, open solutions that evolve as quickly as the threats themselves.

The future of Money: Cyber Security and Crime in the Fin Tech Era

Securing the internet is now a worldwide priority – and financial institutions, who are among the most vulnerable to such attacks, are at the forefront of determining what steps must be taken to minimize this inevitable risk. But how can the FinTech industry design regulations without impeding innovation? Does the entrepreneurial mindset to “get to the market fast,” undermine security issues? Is blockchain the next line of defense in the quest for cybersecurity?

Topic: Next Gen Security Intelligence platform 

Speaker: Presenter: Mariusz Stawowski

 
Short description: What would security intelligence look like if you could actually find attackers before they cause harm? If you could amplify the abilities of your incident response team so they could quickly respond to all threats they encountered? All without need to sacrifice potentially valuable security data, and prevent ever-growing log management costs. What if we could combine unlimited data collection at a predictable cost? Behavioural analysis-based threat detection, and API-based incident response automation into the next generation of SIEM technologies, so you never have to worry about security blind spots, building or maintaining handmade correlation rules, or running tedious manual response processes again. Exabeam provide a data lake for unlimited data collection. Machine learning and behavioural analysis for detection of advanced threats, like those with lateral movement, and security orchestration and response playbooks for incident response automation. All at the predictable cost.

#HackMyHeart -- or why 2FA is not enough

We will hijack the session of a Facebook user protected by 2FA. We will use this showcase to explain what signs users need to observe and what measures they need to take in order to stay safe when using online services, even when protected with 2FA.

 

Artificial Intelligence in modern cybersecurity solutions -- a hands-on experience

Most threats to the organisations come from the external environment, but there are internal threats, too, that companies need to be protected agains. We will show you how Artificial Intelligence can help companies observe and manage them.

Hall C, 15:00-16:00

Topic: Augmenting security operation centers with cognitive analysis and threat hunting capabilities

Speaker: Aleksandar Ciric, Security technical sales, Southeast Europe, IBM

In an evolving Cybersecurity landscape a sophisticated attacker can remain undetected for months or even years. Proactive approach to the threat identification is becoming a necessity for the high profile organizations, especially in the defense, government and finance sectors. 
IBM is tackling the problem by enhancing the security operations center incident investigation and threat hunting capabilities with the tools and methodologies that aid the analysts uncover connections and patterns in data to identify hidden threats. Using advanced analytics and visual analysis helps analysts focus on core problem and analysis of the data, now displayed in human readable and understandable format, while automating parts of the otherwise manual process with the machine assistance. Behavior analysis, machine learning and threat intelligence feeds augmented by IBM Watson cognitive technology can help in processing the large data sets that would otherwise be unmanageable for the human analyst operating on the unfiltered data set alone. Successful threat hunt and following investigation outcome will result in the new matching and correlations techniques for the automated detection technologies thus gradually improving organizations security posture and ability to combat sophisticated external or internal threats in the future.
