Wait Just an Infosec • 2023-06-07

What is the future of AI use in cyber? How can red teams and blue teams use it in their own operations? Let’s find out together!

This week on Wait Just an Infosec, Editorial Contributor Thomas Wolfe steps in to host and welcomes Kirk Trychel, Senior Red Team Engineer III, Box, for a discussion on AI’s influence on offensive cybersecurity and malware development.
