Fighting cyber with cyber
Deep learning threats demand deep learning solutions.
Security professionals are exploring cognitive technologies and artificial intelligence, particularly deep learning, to better anticipate and defend against cyber threats.
Think about all the promise of artificial intelligence: improved productivity; the automation of mundane, repetitive office tasks; new solutions in genomics and medicine, transportation and agriculture, just to name a few. These exciting developments notwithstanding, it is important to recognize that the technology that underpins these advances is now readily available to virtually any hacker, terrorist or criminal with a credit card.
There are numerous ways bad actors can weaponize these applications for malicious purposes, from penetrating databases to steal personal and corporate data to creating large-scale automated phishing campaigns. These schemes are incredibly difficult to detect and defend against.
Bottom line, we believe it will take deep learning solutions to combat deep learning threats
