CISO Track – AI and Cybersecurity – Dr. Sharif Abuadbba

Dr. Sharif Abuadbba, Senior Research Scientist, Cyber Security CRC Fellow, Data61 | CSIRO

Employing AI for Cybersecurity to solve challenges like cyber-attacks (such as cyber intrusion, data theft and data compromise) can be a double-edged sword as it can be used for both cyber defence and cyber-attacks.

In this session, Dr. Sharif focused on two aspects:

  • presenting a few real-world examples of developing novel AI based algorithms for cyber defence,
  • and exploring the security of deployed AI algorithms and developing corresponding countermeasures.
