About this talk

Is there a coming phishpocalypse? Generating (and detecting) phishing and spam emails with state-of-the-art language neural networks. Deep language-based neural networks are surprisingly good at generating and detecting text of all forms. Some AI labs have been hesitant to release the details of their models for fear that they would be used to spread fake news, spam, and disinformation. What if they were used to generate phishing campaigns, for example? This talk will dive into the details of how phishing and spam emails can be created with these novel text generation neural-networks. The talk will also explain how these kinds of emails can be identified and prevented. Join this talk to learn: • Background on neural networks in the security space • A primer on text generation using state-of-the-art neural networks • How phishing, spam, and malicious emails can be generated using these techniques. • Detection techniques for neural-network generated malicious emails
