August 7th: Unsupervised Machine Learning: A New Approach to Cyber Defense with Megan Mullaney

 From insiders to sophisticated external attackers, the reality of cyber security today is that the threat is already inside.  Self-learning systems represent a fundamental step-change in automated cyber defense, are relied upon by organizations around the world, and can cover up to millions of devices.  Discover why unsupervised machine learning is the future of defense and how the ‘immune system’ approach to cyber security provides complete network visibility and the ability to prioritize threats.

In this session, learn:

  • How new machine learning and mathematics are automating advanced cyber defense
  • Why full network visibility allows you to detect threats as or before they emerge
  • How smart prioritization and visualization of threats allows for better resource allocation and lower risk
  • Real-world examples of unknown threats detected by ‘immune system’ technology

Megan Mullaney is a Director of Sales at Darktrace based out of Washington, DC. Megan focuses primarily in the Southeast, and has worked with many organizations to implement Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System solution.
