Ongoing Talk Series With Industry Leaders Dives Deep Into Gen AI’s Practical Cybersecurity Applications in Business
Princeton, NJ – Nov 14, 2023 – CyberEdBoard recently conducted its AI Series – a pioneering initiative that dives deep into the critical intersection of generative artificial intelligence (gen AI) and enterprise cybersecurity. CyberEdBoard is ISMG’s exclusive community for global cybersecurity and information technology (IT) leaders.
The convergence of AI and cybersecurity has enabled businesses to safeguard their organizations and data, better. Key findings from a recent study indicate a projected increase in the market size of AI in cybersecurity to $60.6 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 21.9%. Another study found that 77% of businesses are using or exploring AI. Among them, 35% of companies have already integrated AI in some aspect and 42% of companies are exploring AI for its implementation in the future.
The surge in AI adoption is driven by increasing use cases where AI shows tremendous promise in the inevitable improvements it will bring to cybersecurity posture management and overall IT operations – assisting security teams in identifying anomalies in IT systems, maintaining system stability, complying with industry regulations, and minimizing downtime.
“ISMG’s AI adoption is not just a choice; it’s a strategic imperative. Part of ISMG’s growing footprint is the CyberEdBoard’s AI Series – an initiative aimed at helping senior cybersecurity and technology practitioners navigate and master the integration of AI capabilities alongside strengthening and improving security measures,” said Sanjay Kalra, CEO, ISMG. “This exclusive series is a first of many planned by CyberEdBoard, to help empower security and technology leaders to address the next generation of challenges.”
Tailored exclusively for CISOs, CIOs and their teams, the two-part AI Series was meticulously curated by industry thought leaders and explored the synergy of human intelligence and AI capabilities for augmenting threat detection, while also providing a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of AI technologies and their impact on cybersecurity and IT infrastructure.
The first episode of the AI Series, “Harnessing the Human Factor of AI: Strengthening Cybersecurity Through Human-AI Collaboration,” was designed to equip both security and technology teams with insights into the interplay between human expertise and AI technologies in the context of streamlining IT processes and automating routine cybersecurity tasks. The session explored the art of crafting AI systems with a human-centric touch. Cybersecurity and IT leaders dived into usability, articulation and intuitive interfaces that redefine how cybersecurity solutions resonate with human users.
