Five keys to successfully use Machine learning in Cyber Defense

Bruno Hareng
Cyber Security Business Development Manager, EMEA, Aruba, an HPE Company

In a digitalized world, the perimeter is changing, and the internal protection becomes key. However, initial solutions using rules fall short as they generate too many alerts and lack of actionable information for the understaffed Cyber Security Operation Center to react in a timely manner. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in particular, are promising technologies to assist the cyber analyst but there are many traps and myths that must be understood. This talk will explain you those and help you during your Machine learning Journey.
