In 2016, despite best of breed IT security tools, organizations have continued to be overwhelmed by daily cyber threats and new vulnerabilities. This trend is expected to accelerate in 2017 with the continued expansion of the enterprise attack surface across cloud, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) environments. With hundreds of thousands of vulnerabilities across thousands of machines, how can organizations address cyber security and lower risk from cyber-attacks? In this talk, Dr. Mukkamala will discuss new developments that will enable businesses to manage cyber risk more effectively. He will explain new approaches to cyber security, including harnessing big data, threat and business intelligence to determine risk exposure, and the role of human-interactive machine learning in orchestrating remediation actions.
