The Bay of Plenty Security Interest Group and the Tauranga branch of ITP invite you to this presentation on "Malware vs Machine Learning".

The world of malware development, deployment and attacks is ever changing in a cat and mouse style war. We will discuss the history of malware, the drivers behind it and why the dark side has historically always had the upper hand. We will then provide an introduction to Artificial Intelligence as it applies to cyber security, along with discussing trends, advantages and disadvantages of the technology in practise.

Light catering will be provided thanks to Advantage.

12:30 - Formal Welcome and Guest Speaker + Questions
