Ex-McKinsey Strategy Consultant Highlights Role of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning to Counter Cyber Security Threats in Real Time


Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street and former strategy consultant with McKinsey, partnering with Terrapinn Training in 3-Day Masterclass Cybersecurity to bring key insights for government officials, CEOs and board members on cyber security

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(September 6, 2017, London) When cyber security analysts investigate a critical event, they need to perform several manual tasks: gather local context around the incident by reviewing data and related events before expanding the search to gather more data around the incident, conduct threat research and develop expertise by manipulating multiple data sources such as threat feeds, blogs and research articles and, finally, apply the intelligence they gathered to qualify the incident and identify the root cause. For Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, the advancement of artificial intelligence will augment the security analyst’s ability to fill gaps in intelligence, speed and accuracy to confidently identify and stop cyberattacks. Perez is a well-known international futurist and cyber keynote speaker who currently offers Cybersecurity Training services for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups.

Attempting to disrupt the landscape of technologies focused on cybersecurity is artificial intelligence and, more specifically, deep learning. Taking the flexibility and thinking capacity of the human mind, digitizing it, and creating a genius system faster, more consistent and potentially more capable than any human brain, deep learning is now plowing through colossal mountains of data, often in real time, to uncover new and often unexpected relationships, providing unique insights into threats, and empowering improvements to machine learning models and mitigation processes. These technologies will enable analysts or threat responders to focus on the half-dozen critical events of the day, rather than distill 50,000 erroneous alerts generated each day.

Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, is a recognized futurist, keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage.
