Webinar: Using AI to Improve Detection, Prevention and Response

Legacy antivirus (AV) just isn’t working. Signature-based AV is ineffective in stopping ransomware and zero-day attacks, and creates a burden on your staff between patching, updating, reimaging systems, and overall impact to endpoint performance.

January 9, 2020 at 10:00 AM PST / 1:00 PM EST

As former NSA Director Admiral Michael Rogers once said, “Without artificial intelligence, Cyber is a losing strategy.” AI is all around us, and everyone is claiming to use it, but not all AI is created equal. With 70% of all cyberattacks beginning on the endpoint, with the right AI in place organizations can move to a prevention-first approach to endpoint security.

Join BlackBerry Cylance and (ISC)2 on Thursday, January 9, 2020 for our first Security Briefing of the year, where we will discuss AI-tools that can provide powerful detection, prevention and response capabilities.
