Understanding the Importance of Securing the ML Code with ML

Cyberthreats are becoming smarter and more complex as the threat players have access to newer, AI driven, cloud enhanced technologies. Having the ability to forecast cyberattacks before they happen depends on the same AI capabilities. How can we outsmart the cyberthreats? The answer is by augmenting traditional Cybersecurity with the help of Machine Learning and Deep Leaning technologies. This session will be focused on defining the threat players, types of security threats and defensive techniques, and will culminate with a practical example on how Generative Adversarial Networks can help build proactive, resilient, and robust cybersecurity solutions.
