The New Era of Cyber-Threats: Self-Learning Defence and Autonomous Response
This new wave of cyber-threats has seen skilled attackers that may lie low for weeks or months. By the time they take definitive steps, their actions blend in with the everyday hum of network activity. These attacks call for a change in the way we protect our most critical assets.
Self-learning and self-defending systems are now being deployed to continually assess business environments. Known as ‘immune system’ defense, this approach is used to uncover threats that have already penetrated the network border, and then automatically fight back. Unlike legacy approaches, which rely on rules or signatures, these technologies work autonomously, enable the security team to focus on high-value tasks, and can counter even fast-moving, automated attackers.
In this session, learn about:
• The new age of silent, stealthy attacks that lie low in networks for weeks and months
• Why legacy approaches, like rules and signatures, are proving inadequate on their own
• How new ‘immune system’ technologies based on advanced mathematics and machine learning are being deployed today
• Real-world examples of subtle, unknown threats that routinely bypass traditional controls
