    AI-Based Autonomous Response: Are Humans Ready? 

    Global ransomware attacks like WannaCry already move too quickly for humans to keep up, and even more advanced attacks are on the horizon. Cyber security is quickly becoming an arms race — machines fighting machines on the battleground of corporate networks. Algorithms against algorithms.

    Artificial intelligence-based cyber defense can not only detect threats as they emerge but also autonomously respond to attacks in real time. As the shortage of trained cyber analysts worsens, the future of security seems to be automatic. But are humans ready to accept the actions machines would take to neutralize threats? In this presentation, we will discuss our lessons learned and explore several use-cases in which autonomous response technology augmented human security teams.
