Event Date: Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Event Description: 
US organization are expected to spend over $100 billion per year in cybersecurity, a number that is projected to grow significantly given the massive adoption of cloud, the number of connected devices, and increasing cyber-crimes activities. While cybersecurity startups brought in around $4.2 billion in VC funding — breaking a 2015 high, even with a similar number of deals compared to the previous two years, the need for data privacy and protection grows. So does the need for secure and intelligent communication networks, reliable and fast authentication, fail safe and redundancy planning and certified and established regulatory systems. The future of cybersecurity offers many risks, but also business opportunities enabled by applying artificial intelligence to protect people, operations, organization and nation states. Join us for the evening where we will deep dive into the different dimension related to the intersection of AI and cybersecurity.
