The cat and mouse game of cyber security is nothing new. Hackers and extortionists find new ways to penetrate defenses, and security experts erect new barriers to keep them out. Just sometimes, they can even plug up vulnerabilities before criminals can exploit them.
Is AI about to upend this carefully balanced arms race?
Christian Matthies is a cyber security expert and founding partner of CISOCON, an elite cyber security consultancy firm. He has personally witnessed how much easier it is to break into a system than protect, and AI is likely to empower hackers exponentially … or is it? As Christian points out, AI can also be used to streamline the work done by defenders like himself, to great effect.
In this episode of the Europreneur Podcast, Robert van der Zwart and Markus Wuebben talk with Christian Matthies about cyber security in the age of AI, including how entrepreneurs should educate their employees about the dangers of sophisticated attacks, if AI is about to shift the balance of power between hackers and defenders, and much more.
