The field of cybersecurity is becoming very dynamic, and needs continuous evolution. This requires not only the formal and in-formal education, but a security mindset to be developed for our future workforce. This panel elaborates on some such aspects.
On one side, the security industry has successfully adopted some AI-based techniques. Use varies from mitigating denial of service attacks, forensics, intrusion detection systems, homeland security, critical infrastructures protection, sensitive information leakage, access control, and malware detection. On the other side, we see the rise of Adversarial AI. Here the core idea is to subvert AI systems for fun and profit. The methods utilized for the production of AI systems are systematically vulnerable to a new class of vulnerabilities. Adversaries are exploiting these vulnerabilities to alter AI system behavior to serve a malicious end goal. This panel discusses some of these aspects.
