From AI to deepfakes: How machine learning is affecting cybersecurity
Is what you're watching real, fake or a combination of both? Machine learning and artificial intelligence make it easier than ever to blur those lines, and cybercriminals are already exploiting the technology. Today's guest is Infosec Skills author Emmanuel Tsukerman, who literally wrote the book on machine learning for cybersecurity. He discusses the deep learning applications of cybercrime, how machine learning technologies are being used by security professionals, and ways you can leverage these new skills to help boost your cybersecurity career.
Dr. Tsukerman graduated from Stanford University and UC Berkeley. He began his cybersecurity career in a small startup as a cybersecurity data scientist, where he developed a machine-learning-based anti-ransomware solution that won the Top 10 Ransomware Products award by PC Magazine. In addition, Dr. Tsukerman designed a machine-learning malware detection system for Palo Alto Network's firewall service, securing over 30,000 enterprise customers in real time. He is the author of the “Machine Learning for Cybersecurity Cookbook” and the popular Infosec learning paths “Cybersecurity Data Science” and “Machine Learning for Red Team Hackers.”
How artificial intelligence is changing social engineering
When I was first learning about social engineering, I remember listening to a recording of different phone calls to Starbucks. I was astounded how easy it was to obtain sensitive information like partner and employee numbers.
Machine Learning in Offensive Security
Contrary to popular belief, machine learning is not an invention of the 21st century. Over the last twenty years, however, several productive hardware platforms have appeared, and now neural networks and other machine-learning models can be used to help us with everyday needs.
