Presentation Topic: Cognitive Security

For decades, we’ve programmed computers to recognise viruses, malware and exploits. Given the disruptive digital transformation facing many organisations, how can cognitive security give us the edge against the bad guys? Adversaries constantly morph their attacks and find creative ways to breach organisational defenses. What organisations need is the ability to detect the subtlest change in activity and analyse it with as much context as possible to distinguish and eliminate new threats. On the basis that Moore's law observes that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. Can human beings keep up with the growth of technology exponentially advancing rapidly and actually protect their organisations from attacks perpetrated by organised crime? Are you willing to commence your own cognitive security journey?
