SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 16, 2024 — Trellix has announced its AI and Cybersecurity Virtual Summit, The New Frontier in Cybersecurity: AI’s Risk and Opportunity, sponsored by Amazon Web Services (AWS), will take place February 28 and 29, 2024.

As the AI revolution shapes the cybersecurity landscape, advancements in security capabilities enable organizations to improve defensive tactics while enabling nation-states and criminal organizations to improve offensive tactics. Cybersecurity leaders are challenged to manage these risks to enhance the organization’s cybersecurity posture. AI, automation, and analytics can help.

“The growing prevalence and implications of Generative AI (GenAI) in today’s operational ecosystem presents a transformative opportunity for CISOs to lean in and take advantage of the technology securely,” said Harold Rivas, CISO, Trellix. “Adopting an AI-powered XDR approach to cybersecurity spanning machine learning, artificial intelligence, and generative AI enables CISOs to effectively defend against sophisticated cyber attacks and improve the cyber resilience of their organizations.”

The AI and Cybersecurity Summit will equip security leaders with the skills to counter emerging cyber threats with AI-powered solutions. Summit attendees will learn how to defend against cybercriminals using AI, why AI chatbots pose a risk, how to protect against data leakage, and how to utilize the power of AI to accelerate response time, increase SOC efficiency, and reduce time to investigate.
