Leveraging AI & ML for Cybersecurity: Technical & Business Challenges

by Ashish Kundu, Head of Cybersecurity Research, Cisco Research

Cybersecurity teams and startups are jumping onto the AI/ML bandwagon in order to push the boundary of technology offerings and exploit the related commercial opportunity. There are several challenges in succeeding in leveraging AI/ML for security. In this talk, I will discuss some of these challenges. We will go over how cybersecurity technology has evolved over time from traditional to data-driven and intelligence-driven, and how startups can enable such technologies dependent on data and AI/ML. We will study the highly optimistic assumptions around AI/ML techniques that the entrepreneurs and the businesses/customers are often making. We will go over some of these assumptions and why they need to be re-evaluated carefully. Startups may face some business challenges in acquiring customers for their AI/ML based products. In that context, I will also discuss the challenges faced by CISOs and other technology leaders in evaluating and incorporating AI/ML-based security offerings in their security-suite.
