AI has infused the network security landscape, fundamentally changing how network security is practiced. This course is intended to help managers and decision makers understand this new reality. We will cover a number of topics relevant to organizational leaders, including:
  • How AI provides value to the field of network security
  • Differentiating between AI-enabled capability and traditional security tools (many of which still work great!)
  • Understanding fundamental AI limitations
  • How to effectively build, manage, and succeed with an integrated data science / network security team
The afternoon session will dive into team-building and management.

Intended Audience: This course is targeted for cyber analysts who are interested in transitioning from analysis to data science at a level that should not require any statistical or machine learning background. The goal is to introduce foundational data science concepts and prepare attendees to scope a new AI/ML project. Managers or individuals planning to fund such a project will gain practical insight into the difference in organizing a data science project.
