Tonight’s topic

Motivated and skilled adversaries will always find a way to breach the perimeter defences. That's why it's so important to also detect and respond to active threats inside your environment, in real-time so you can stop attackers in their tracks before they steal, destroy or manipulate your digital assets. 
AI is an increasing feature within our cybersecurity arsenal, to defend, detect, and automate incident response. But with Cybersecurity providers everywhere liberally adding claims about the Artificial Intelligence inside their products how can you separate what's real, and what works from the hype? 
Please join us for a relaxed evening of conversation and insights around the application of AI to solve some of the most pressing  challenges  in cyber security.
