Speaker: Ron Winward

Topic: Targeting the Hidden Attack Surface of Automation
Every day, we hear about Artificial Intelligence (AI) invading more and more of everything around us. Within Information Security, we cannot get around new algorithms, new machine learning techniques, and a rush to automate everything. However, have these new technologies paradoxically ushered in a completely new world of vulnerabilities?
Radware explores a fascinating topic of how everything from APIs to people are being attacked in a new hidden attack surface which has uniqueness to cloak and anonymize its designers and has incredible speed and efficiency in its attack types. In fact, this presentation will highlight how each step towards deeper and total connectivity comes with consequences of protecting the very automation which is designed to make our world easy. In this session, you will take away the notion of how everything from humans to bots have weak undersides to automation, and even AI interfaces can be duped into attacks.
