Protecting Critical Infrastructures Using AI: Industry Insights

Thursday May 3, 2018 (9:00am PT / 12:00pm ET)

With the US government and European Union issuing rare public warnings of imminent cyber-threats targeting critical infrastructure, how do we know if subtle and advanced threat-actors are lurking in our systems?

Silent and stealthy threats can be active on a network for weeks or months, slowly doing damage without detection. These pernicious threats are especially dangerous to industrial environments still reliant on legacy bespoke systems. Industrial Control Systems environments face a myriad of new security challenges such as connected industrial devices, sensors, remote maintenance repair operations, and increasing connectivity to IT systems. How can we combat these challenges amidst an increasingly volatile cyber-threat landscape?

Join Darktrace and leading energy companies, Entegrus and Energy+, for a discussion on how AI can be operationalized to secure networks across the energy industry and beyond.

Combating Complexity: Immune System Cyber Security for the Changing Business Landscape

Thursday November 16, 2017 (9:00am PT / 5:00pm GMT)

In an age of cloud computing and connected devices, networks have become more complex than ever before. Security teams now face the challenge of securing cloud environments, IoT devices, and SaaS applications, as well as the standard corporate network. This expanding attack surface has introduced a host of new opportunities for threat actors, from compromising smart TVs and connected fish tanks to stealing data through Dropbox or AWS.

To keep pace with these changes, organizations across the world are turning to self-learning technologies powered by AI. Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System can detect and respond to cyber-threats in real time, while also providing visibility into all corners of the network. With the rise of stealthy cyber-attacks designed to blend into the network, automatically identifying subtle anomalies and threats as they happen has become paramount.

Join this webinar led by Darktrace’s Director of Technology, Dave Palmer, for an interactive discussion on:

  • The challenges presented by the complexity of today’s corporate networks
  • How Darktrace’s machine learning learns ‘on the job’, detecting zero-days and other threats that other tools miss

The Machine Fights Back: Autonomous Response for a Self-Defending Network

Tuesday November 7, 2017 (9:00am PT / 5:00pm GMT)

The scene is changing: classic compromises like stolen data or defaced websites are no longer the only threats to organizations. Hackers are launching high-speed attacks on a global scale, shutting down networks with WannaCry ransomware and targeting IoT devices to disrupt the internet. But attackers are also wreaking havoc in stealthier ways, waiting quietly on networks in order to undermine the very integrity of data.

Today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape demands a fundamentally different approach to cyber defense. To level the playing field, organizations across the globe are turning to self-defending cyber ‘immune systems’ to autonomously respond to in-progress threats, in real time. Leveraging advances in machine learning and AI algorithms, Darktrace Antigena offers a solution capable of fighting back against this new era of cyber-threat.

Insider Threat: Real-World Examples of AI Defense

Wednesday October 25, 2017 (9:00am PT / 5:00pm BST)

Whether malicious or not, insider threat is a major source of problems, breaches and attacks. You cannot guarantee that 100% of your employees or credential holders – however well-educated and well-meaning – will do the right thing 100% of the time. Equally, an insider with malicious intent has the potential to cause almost unlimited damage, given their privileged access and the cloak of legitimacy they operate under. The scope for threat is therefore very broad, and yet often overlooked or underestimated.

Join Darktrace’s Director of Cyber Intelligence, Justin Fier, and Director of Cyber Analysis, Andrew Tsonchev, for four real-world examples of Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System thwarting insider threats, without relying on known threat patterns, rules, or signatures.
