Topic: Rogue AI injection into the Enterprise: the ultimate cyber threat

What will the hack of the future look like?  How insidious will it be?  How will we protect against it?

These questions will be explored by Erik Laykin as he shares the contours of the ultimate cyber threat which may be just around the corner: Rogue AI Injection into the Enterprise. Future attacks will utilize artificial intelligence embedded in the payload which will morph and evolve within corporate networks to evade detection and execute payloads which will mimic legitimate functions, actors and features of the environment. Will AI based malware be able to reconstruct itself on the fly in order to evade signature or behavior based detection? How will trust be preserved?  As we enter the new world of intelligent machines will we deploy counter-bots to search and destroy AI enabled malware on the network? State actors and criminal enterprises alike are racing to build these insidious machines of data and logic; it will be up to security professionals to devise the defensive line.
