TCS+ | ESET’s Adrian Stanford: how AI will transform cybersecurity

--:--
Artificial intelligence technologies will be used by both threat actors and those fighting cybercrime, and will bring about fundamental changes in the information security industry.
This is the view of Adrian Stanford, group chief technology officer at ESET Southern Africa, who was speaking to TechCentral’s TCS+ business technology show this week.
Stanford, who is immersed in the world of infosec, unpacks how cyberattackers are using – and will expand their use of – generative AI tools to achieve their nefarious objectives, and how cybersecurity professionals can utilise the same technologies to fight back and improve defences.
He unpacks:
• The key trends shaping the infosec landscape in 2024, including supply-chain attacks, deepfakes and nation state involvement;
• How AI factors into cybersecurity, including what threat actors are doing with the technology, and how AI will help companies like ESET fight the scourge of cybercrime;
• How future developments in AI will impact the infosec field, both good and bad; and
• The role of ESET in protecting internet users from harm as the AI arms race hots up.
Don’t miss this important discussion on a critically important topic to all organisations – big and small – in 2024.
