Help AG, an information security services, consultancy and solutions provider, will host the Security Spotlight Forum in Dubai and Abu Dhabi on the 25th and 26th of June respectively to educate the market about the application of AI and machine learning in cyber security.
The event will be held under the theme "AI and Machine Learning in Cyber Security" and will see Help AG team up with vendor partners, Infoblox, F5 Networks, Fortinet, Symantec and Splunk, to deliver information-packed sessions that will give attendees comprehensive insight into how they are powering their next-generation security platforms through the application of AI and machine learning.
Nicolai Solling, CTO at Help AG, said: "AI is no longer just in the realm of science fiction. Attackers have begun using it to aid malware creation, automate and scale their attacks, exploit social engineering, and enhance the detection evasion capabilities of their malicious code."
Solling added that security is an arms race and organisations simply cannot afford to overlook AI's application to cyber defence. "We understand this may appear to be a daunting challenge for in-house IT teams, so we invite IT professionals to attend our event for the chance to rapidly update themselves on the latest trends, threats and technologies in this revolutionary field of cyber security," he said.
The event will feature an in-depth look into the practical implementations and use-cases of AI in cyber security by Solling and Dr. Aleksandar Valjarevic, head of Solution Architecture at Help AG.
"As we embark on digital transformation, your organisation will not operate IT, but IT will operate your organisation, making the requirement for cyber security capabilities greater than ever before," he said. "If you are unsure of how to do this in the face of highly motivated cyber attackers, you need to work with organisations such as Help AG that have built their entire business around helping organisations always stay secure and a step ahead."
Solling explained that there's no better opportunity for IT professionals to get an in-depth view of just how to leverage AI and machine learning to strengthen the security posture of their organisation than by attending the Security Spotlight Forum.
