Cyber security remains a top priority for all businesses. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are being adopted by more and more industries and are therefore playing an increasingly significant role in cyber security.

Machine learning systems that accurately predict and identify attacks are fast becoming standard tools of the trade for cybersecurity professionals. The downside, of course, is that these technologies will also be exploited by cyber criminals. Additionally, ransomware will continue to claim high-profile victims. Recent attacks have taught companies that it is essential to conduct regular back-ups, to keep all software fully up to date at all times, and to strengthen their real-time defenses on an ongoing basis.

The CEBIT Cyber Security Summit explores these and other threats and challenges as well as the latest cyber security strategies.
