We'll discuss artificial intelligence, automation, security, defense vs. offensive cyber capabilities and how to best protect critical infrastructure with leaders from the Defense Department, Homeland Security Department, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, FBI, CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, U.S. Cyber Command, Justice Department, and more!

Man vs. Machine: Is Automation National Security's Silver Bullet?

Summary: Today's agencies face a plethora of cyberthreats, not only spearheaded by human attackers but by automated bots, making it more challenging than ever to secure federal IT systems and infrastructure. To fight fire with fire, more agencies are deploying automation to thwart incoming threats, and agencies like DIA, NGA and DHS are leading the way in using automation to fortify systems. Experts from these agencies will discuss the best examples of automation today and the future demands of federal cyberwarriors.
