RiskSense CEO to Present New Approach for Assessing Industrial Threats at the 2018 ICS Cyber Security Conference USA

gbafNews28

RiskSense, Inc., pioneering risk-based vulnerability prioritization and management, today announced that its CEO, Srinivas Mukkamala, Ph.D. will present a session on using an artificial intelligence-based approach for assessing cyber risk in industrial environments at the SecurityWeek 2018 ICS Cyber Security Conference USA in Atlanta, Georgia.

       

WHO:

Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and CEO of RiskSense, is a recognized expert on artificial intelligence (AI) and neural networks. He was part of a think tank that collaborated with the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community on applying these concepts to cybersecurity problems. Dr. Mukkamala was also a lead researcher for CACTUS (Computational Analysis of Cyber Terrorism against the U.S.) and holds a patent on Intelligent Agents for Distributed Intrusion Detection System and Method of Practicing.
 

WHAT:

Industrial environments are increasingly being connected to IT systems to optimize management, yet operational technology (OT) networks lack even basic security controls. In this session, Assessing Device-based Risk to Secure ICS Environments, Dr. Mukkamala will explain why conventional vulnerability management and mitigation techniques are unable to address unique OT security challenges. He will present a new approach which uses human-assisted AI and machine learning to assess device-level risk and vulnerabilities against potential exploit paths to dynamically analyze threats and even predict cyber attacks. Dr. Mukkamala will demonstrate how this model can prioritize remediation efforts to protect critical industrial infrastructures against cyber threats.

 

WHEN:

Wednesday, October 24, 2018, 9:45-10:30 AM EDT
 

WHERE:

SecurityWeeks 2018 ICS Cyber Security Conference USA, InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, 3315 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30326
