Outpacing cybersecurity

Why thinking like your attacker, understanding your risk, and leveraging AI
are critical defensive tipping points to give you the edge

In partnership with

Turn the tables on your (future) adversary

Current cybersecurity defenses are largely reactive, responding to attacks only after they’ve occurred. As threats become more complicated in scale and severity, a reactive approach is no longer adequate to safeguard an organization against adaptive attackers.

The next phase of security will focus on the prevention of attacks by getting into the head of your adversary to make attacks less likely to succeed.

Hosted by MIT Technology Review in partnership with Darktrace, we take you inside the minds of researchers, development teams, and those on the frontline of cyber defense to discuss the current global threat landscape, the risks organizations really face, and how sophisticated technology can be leveraged to proactively identify weaknesses, augment human skills, and protect your organization.
