Fight Holiday Cyber Crime with Self-Learning AI

Presented by

Brianna Leddy, Darktrace Director of Analysis

About this talk

With the holiday season well underway, cyber defenders and cyber criminals alike are in the midst of a busy time. Hackers are known to exploit the festive season with a range of tactics: from phishing campaigns luring victims with time-sensitive deals, to targeted supply chain attacks. Critically, ransomware resurges as criminals attempt to disrupt businesses when security teams are out of office and human response times are inevitably slower. Autonomous security that can intelligently respond to cyber-threats at machine speed becomes all the more necessary in this time of elevated risk. Join Brianna Leddy, Darktrace Director of Analysis, as she explores the cyber-threat trends of the holiday season and how Self-Learning AI uniquely stands to protect organizations from seasonal spikes in attacks. Brianna will explore real-world threat finds discovered by AI, including: -A Christmas Day ransomware attack -A doppelganger attack -Black Friday phishing
