Lessons of a Cyber Attack to Prevent Future Cyber Epidemics

The impact of malware outbreaks in 2017 is short lived compared to the ones we saw a decade ago. One of the key observations in 2017 is we have seen an attack that was infectious across the Internet and also an attack that was not infectious but had similar significant impact.

Cyber epidemics are starting to afflict all business by impacting critical IT infrastructure. To increase the organization’s resilience against cyber-epidemics, you need to validate your attack surface and its susceptibility to attacks.

Cyber-attacks tend to resemble a power law distribution in which a few dozen infiltration vectors account for most breaches and a “long tail” consisting of a large number of less common infiltration vectors account for the rest. It is important to provide timely and accurate information to keep the number of infiltrations low and the impact to your business reduced.

What you will learn from this webinar:

- How to prioritize what is most important when an attack happens.
- Visibility into your attack surface and how to validate what the exposure is.
- How to establish a metric based risk management program.

    Are we prepared to deal with malevolent AI? Artificial Intelligence (AI) can bolster defenses by analyzing vast volumes of data and assist cyber security professionals the converse is true as well; malevolent AI can assist hackers find their targets faster and launch attacks faster. Finding effective vulnerability threat pairs is difficult for multiple reasons. In an asymmetric war defenders have to know all possible vulnerability threat pairs, while an attacker will get away by knowing just a few successful ones. Our goal is to achieve a proof of principle for how we can predict successful vulnerability threat combinations using AI, without the need to brute force thousands of combinations. In this webinar, RiskSense CEO Srinivas Mukkamala will discuss with RiskSense Security Researchers Sean Dillon and Ben Mixon-Baca a recent case study where the combination of human expertise and Artificial Intelligence (AI) was able to mimic a human hacker to find vulnerable threat pairs and launch exploits at a tremendous scale.
