Education: Cybersecurity 101 - Outwitting ingenious attackers

Cyber threats to payments are evolving fast, and are increasingly focused on exploiting weak payments processes and unsuspecting people, as well as vulnerable IT systems.

This talk will give examples of some recent (anonymised) successful attacks against financial institutions and the methods used by the attackers. In describing the attacks end-to-end it will illustrate the range of controls needed to defend against them - and dispel some myths as to the effectiveness of some traditional security controls.

Education: Cyber 101 – Artificial Intelligence for Information Security

InfoSec (information security) professionals are facing cyber threats that are increasing in both volume and complexity. Over the past year many discussions have taken place with security leaders about the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in InfoSec. Those discussions have highlighted a level of confusion concerning AI concepts. Specifically this confusion concerns the differences between Machine Learning (ML) and AI, and also raises the question, “What is Deep Learning?”.

Cyber attacks & AI predictions

This session will explore how to build artificial intelligent systems for InfoSec. With evolving attacks, we need a system that can continuously collect analyst input, incorporate the input and learn/adapt models that can mimic analysts. We will explore what kind of input from analysts is needed, how models can be learnt and adapted, how to utilize analyst time effectively and how to measure efficacy of such systems.
