AI Summit 2024 - Web 1.png

The topic of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been dominating most cybersecurity conferences lately, but with little practical and actionable solutions to follow.

The SANS AI Summit aims to change that.

The Summit aims to highlight innovative and practical approaches to incorporating AI and Machine Learning (ML) into daily cybersecurity tasks, making them more efficient, accurate, and effective.

Day 1 | Sunday, September 8 | In-Person Only | SANS Instructor-Led AI Workshops: You will learn how to use AI in your cybersecurity work today through hands-on workshops focusing on the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques to enhance cybersecurity-related job roles.

Workshops will cover generative AI (genAI) or Machine Learning (ML) enhanced Incident Response, Cyber Defense, Cloud Security, and Vulnerability Assessment and Exploitation techniques.

Day 2 | Monday, September 9 | Available In-Person & Live Online: In addition to lightning talks on AI enhanced cybersecurity capabilities, we will delve into the intricacies of exploiting and defending against the vulnerabilities of Large Language Models (LLMs) and generative AI (genAI) solutions. Specifically, we will explore the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used by attackers to compromise LLMs and genAI models and the countermeasures and defensive strategies organizations can employ to mitigate these risks with presentations and panels.

You will gain useful insights, strategies, practical solutions, and use cases that will help you to enhance your understanding and skills to keep up with this fast-changing technological landscape.

Specifically, the AI Summit will:

  • Highlight innovative applications of AI and ML in cybersecurity.
  • Share practical techniques and tools for incorporating AI and ML into daily cybersecurity tasks.
  • Foster collaboration and knowledge-sharing among cybersecurity professionals.
  • Provide actionable insights and takeaways for attendees to improve their own cybersecurity practices.

Join us in Las Vegas, where you will have the opportunity to connect with cybersecurity professionals, AI/ML experts, and thought leaders to exchange insights, showcase innovative applications, and advance the use of AI-powered cybersecurity solutions.

You will gain a deeper understanding and how to better utilize these new methods for your cybersecurity strategy and operations.
