CSAI in person September2022

About a decade ago, the first results of machine learning and behavioral analysis results for CyberSecurity became apparent in services and products coping against Cyber threats. 

Today, the use AI-tools is omnipresent in CyberSecurity. 

During this day, Thursday September 15th in Leuven, LSEC and partners will present some practical implementations of AI into CyberSecurity, present the basics of modern CyberSecurity defense mechanics, instruct on how to use Open Source components and where the key benefits can be discovered, but also explained on how the mechanics behind AI can be fooled and how to be prepared against potential advanced potential threats focusing on your AI-powered cybersecurity tools. 

In the historical setting of the Convent van Chievre – Faculty Club – Groot Begijnhof.
