AI For Enterprise Security: The Challenges from a Data Scientist's Perspective

Looking for a overview of cybersecurity and artificial intelligence? Look no further. In this 45 minute session delivered at the Center for Long Term Cybersecurity (UC-Berkeley), Dr. Ignacio Arnaldo shares his view at the intersection of Big Data, InfoSec, and Artificial Intelligence.

Bending the Boundaries of Normal

Supervised Learning is a vital component of an Artificial Intelligence strategy. As InfoSec specialists, our job is to reduce both false positives and false negatives simultaneously in order to pinpoint real attacks. Without Supervised Learning, this task would be extremely difficult. With it, we can train a system to identify certain attacks with high levels of precision. And what's more, this system is working 24x7x365 and can review far more data than an army of humans could.

To illustrate the power of Supervised Learning, let us consider a simple example: a malware attack. We know that—despite all of our anti-malware, perimeter defenses, sandboxes, and security policies—malware gets into your systems. Once inside your organization, malware will seek to communicate with its controller to receive instructions. Let's compare using rules versus using Supervised Learning to detect malware.

Glossary of AI Terms for Cyber Security

We often encounter confusion and hype surrounding the terminology of Artificial Intelligence. In this post, it is hoped that the security practitioner can have a quick reference guide for some of the more important and common terms.

The Challenges of AI in InfoSec

At PatternEx, we acknowledge that analysts are the key resource in InfoSec, and given the lack of qualified personnel in the market, we have set ourselves the goal to enable human analysts to direct their own team of virtual analysts (see our previous post) to scale the resources to address today’s InfoSec problems.
