Is AI an Overhyped Gimmick? Lastline Co-founder, Dr. Giovanni Vigna, Will Explain at FS-ISAC Annual Summit
Thursday, April 18, 2019

Premier financial services security conference attendees will hear the capabilities and limitations of AI for cybersecurity

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lastline®, the leader in AI-powered network security, today announced that the company's co-founder and CTO, Dr. Giovanni Vigna, has been selected to present at FS-ISAC's annual summit in Orlando, FL. Dr. Vigna is also a professor of computer science at University of California at Santa Barbara, providing a depth of research and expertise into the current capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI), the future potential, what it takes to effectively develop, train, and maintain an AI system, and the limitations of AI in cybersecurity.

Conference: FS-ISAC Annual Summit
Presentation: AI: Security Savior or Over-Hyped Gimmick
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 30 at 12:45pm
Location: Orlando, FL

AI is seen as a possible silver bullet for cybersecurity and fraud prevention. Can the technology possibly meet these lofty expectations? The answer is no in the short term, but very likely in the long term. Dr. Vigna's presentation will define what AI is, what it is not, and what is necessary for it to be implemented as part of an effective security solution.

Dr. Vigna has been researching and developing security technology for more than 20 years, working on malware analysis, web security, vulnerability assessment, and intrusion detection. He is the author of more than 200 publications, including peer-reviewed papers in journals, conferences, and workshops, a book on intrusion correlation, and (as an editor) a book on mobile code security. Giovanni has been the Program Chair of the International Symposium on Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection (RAID 2003), of the ISOC Symposium on Network and Distributed Systems Security (NDSS 2009), and of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (in 2010 and 2011). He is known for organizing and running an annual inter-university Capture The Flag (iCTF) hacking contest that involves dozens of institutions and hundreds of students around the world. He also leads the Shellphish Hacking Team, which is the longest-running team playing at DefCon's CTF.
