The top Security Challenges and how AI/Machine Learning is evolving to Address
In this presentation we’ll discuss a number of issues contributing to the increasing number of breaches and how we can leverage the latest advances in AI/ML to turn this trend around.
The issues that we’ll discuss are: Conventional tools only combat known attacks. The incredible increasing volume of data. Outsourced Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) Operations are mostly failing at preventing breaches. Alert Overload. Lack of Security Professionals. Lack of subscribing to and managing environments to a Security Framework. Average time to fully contain a breach is lengthening. The cost of a breach remains very expensive. The length of time to identify a breach is barely improving. Efficacy of Conventional Security tools averages only 85%. Almost every company needs more money for cybersecurity but won’t get it.
For each of the above challenges there are new approaches that need to be understood and potentially leveraged to reduce risk.

Session Nine2:45 pm - 3:15 pm
Application Security in an Ever Changing Digital Landscape
Why is application security such a crucial function of any robust Cyber Security Program. We will take a look at the findings from our latest research on application security vulnerability trends. Why is application security still the weakest link in most programs and how to position application security programs successfully in an organization. We will dive into why application security is solved by one or more products, but by a comprehensive program. Most importantly, what are the key steps companies have taken to establish application security programs that have really moved the needle with respect to reducing the application attack surface.
