The AI Toolkit applied to Security and Privacy

Join us for our December 2023 Chapter Meeting, featuring the topic “The AI Toolkit applied to Security and Privacy.” This is a collaborative event for the InfraGard Pittsburgh Members Alliance and members of the Greater Pittsburgh CISO Group. This event will deep dive into the intersection of artificial intelligence and security, offering insights that are invaluable in today’s digital landscape.

The topic’s agenda includes key concepts, the evolving threat landscape, and a unique mindmap that explores ten critical application areas, spanning from defense and attack strategies to identity management and data protection. You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of how AI is transforming security and privacy.

Our expert speaker, Sam Curry, VP and CISO at Zscaler, will provide in-depth analyses of each application area, equipping you with knowledge to aid in safeguarding your organization in this new era.
