AI and Machine Learning: The Good, Bad and UglyDerek Manky of Fortinet on Extreme Shifts in the Landscape
Automation is the first step toward full-blown machine learning and artificial intelligence. But unfortunately, automation already is being weaponized for malicious purposes, says Fortinet's Derek Manky.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Manky discusses:
- Malicious use of artificial intelligence and machine learning;
- Poisoning machine learning and "swarm-as-a-service";
- The impact of these trends on the future of machine learning technology.
Manky is chief of security insights and global threat alliances at Fortinet. He has more than 15 years of experience in cybersecurity, including meeting with political figures and policy stakeholders globally, including law enforcement. He is involved with several global threat intelligence initiatives, including NATO NICP, INTERPOL Expert Working Group, the Cyber Threat Alliance and the Forum for Incident Response and Security Teams. Manky has been with the CTA since it was founded in May 2014 and serves on its steering committee.
