Cyber Security and AI/ML , combining unicorns The New York Times report there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity positions by 2021. The MIT Technology Review reported that fewer than one in four applicants in cybersecurity were even qualified. Combine the inherent difficulty of cybersecurity with this scarce availability of a qualified workforce, poorly conceived AI/ML becomes either a recipe for disaster or snake-oil that fails to protect you. This talk will cover the role for AI/ML in augmenting your security workforce as well as the pitfalls to avoid investing resources in at-best snake-oil efforts. Avoiding these mistakes is especially important as enterprises move to the complex, hybrid or hybrid multi-cloud environments emerging in the enterprise IT landscape and threatening to inundate already overwhelmed cybersecurity resources.
