  • [Ep.21] Ask the Expert: Ethics in AI Recorded: Sep 18 2018 49 mins
    Alexey Malanov, Malware Expert, Kaspersky Lab
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert series.

    Alexey Malanov joined Kaspersky Lab in 2004, where he began his work as a virus analyst. He has since been appointed Head of Kaspersky's Anti-Malware Team and in 2012, shifted his focus to analyzing technology trends and risks.

    The threat posed by a Strong AI (artificial intelligence where the machine's intellectual capability is functionally equal to a human's) is well-considered in many science fiction films. But the invention of a Strong AI will take many years, so we can afford not to hurry with the study of "laws of robotics."

    However, we are already facing growing concerns. The use of machine learning in various fields has shown that algorithms often make strange, discriminatory and difficult-to-understand decisions. Moreover, it has been clearly demonstrated that a person can cheat algorithms to achieve desired results.

    Alexey addresses some of the looming issues surrounding the AI algorithms that are becoming a part of our daily lives, and will increasingly affect us and our decisions.

  • [Ep.15] Ask the Expert: Managing Change in Cloud-Based Systems Recorded: May 24 2018 38 mins

    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert Series.

    Join David Cuthbertson, CEO of Square Mile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into cloud management. Many senior decision makers have negative feelings regarding the issues of technical teams and don't want to bring them to light - data security, change control, lock in to a supplier who overcharges, proper outage stats, etc.

    Just as there is more awareness of outsourcing contract nightmares, many of the same issues apply to cloud providers. Managing change in cloud-based systems is still a relatively new issue as most technical teams don't think about how cloud systems are managed and the potential risks posed by many suppliers without a viable business model.

  • [Ep.4] Ask the Expert: Getting Serious About Cybercrime Recorded: Mar 7 2018 61 mins
    Joseph Carson (Thycotic) | William Leichter (Virsec) | Chenxi Wang
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK’s "Ask the Expert" Series. As attacks increase and start to have a significant impact, not just on companies’ bottom lines, but on their ability to carry out everyday business, cybersecurity has become much more of a boardroom issue than ever before. Increasingly this is causing forward looking organizations of all sizes to examine how security can be better integrated into business as normal.

    No business is immune from cybercrime and the theft of personal information and intellectual property will increase as the ability to turn raw data into money-spinning opportunities increases. The response to cybercrime is a business decision – and is all about risk management. Between human error and malicious insiders, time has shown us the majority of data breaches originate inside company walls. Employees and negligence are the leading causes of security incidents but remain one of the least reported issues. The fightback starts not in the organization but with people and increasingly in the home. More and more security professionals need to be re-assessing the risks to company data at a personal level - mobile/consumer devices, internet connected devices, cloud access and storage both inside and outside the corporate environment.

    Speakers:
    - Joseph Carson, Chief Security Scientist, Thycotic
    - William Leichter, VP Marketing, Virsec
    - Dr. Chenxi Wang, Founder of The Jane Bond Project & Vice Chair, Board of Directors, OWASP
