RiskSense CEO to Present New Approach for Assessing Device-based Risk at BrightTALK Summit on "Securing the IoT"

Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala will Explain Why IoT Ecosystems Require a Break from Conventional Control and Mitigation Techniques in Favor of a More Adaptive Approach

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – June 7, 2018 – RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer in intelligent threat and vulnerability management, today announced that CEO, Srinivas Mukkamala, Ph.D. will present a session called “Piecing Together IoT Risk from Flexible & Fractured Design Components” as part of the BrightTALK Summit on Securing the IoT on June 12, 2018.

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: Tens of billions of Internet-connected devices are expected to come online over the next two years, most of which lack even basic security controls. This sprawling new attack surface is placing extraordinary pressure on enterprises and their security teams. In this session, Dr. Mukkamala will explain why conventional control and mitigation assumptions are not suited to address the dynamic nature of IoT ecosystems where devices often use intermittent connections and switch and/or reroute data to alternative networks. He will present a new approach to assessing security risk that takes into account the flexible and fractured design of IoT ecosystems. Attendees will learn how this new model can be used to chain together multiple vulnerabilities and potential exploit paths to dynamically analyze threats, predict attacks and take remediation actions to protect against them. 

WHEN: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 3:00 PM PDT
