Webinar: Security Gets Smart with AI - A SANS Survey

WEBCASTS / 03.18.19 / The Cylance Team

How do security professionals view artificial intelligence (AI) as a tool for helping to protect their enterprises? A new SANS survey will examine perceptions about the basic capabilities of AI for security and what technologies—including deep learning, various recognition techniques, machine learning and others—are considered part of AI for security.

The survey also examines whether, how and when security experts will begin implementing AI for security and how they intend to use it.

Join SANS Instructor G. W. Ray Davidson and SANS Senior Analyst Barbara Filkins for a deeper dive into these topics, along with recommendations about how to consider and potentially implement AI for security.
