About the talk

Defending against cyber attacks is a never-ending race. Generative AI is changing cybercrime in the form of deepfakes, automated phishing at scale and region-free scams. Next, we're likely to see fully automated malware campaigns, using machine learning. Most cyber security systems already heavily use AI. Once the attackers migrate to AI, attack and defense online will become a game of a robot against a robot. What have we seen so far? And what's going to happen next?
