Every year at CXOsync we explore directions from within the Office of the CIO; what are these strategists planning and what paths are they taking? Through these discussions we're able to understand their paths and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like IBM, Microsoft and CISCO to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest.

Adapting to Fight Back: How Cyber AI Neutralizes Never-Before-Seen Threats

Artificial intelligence is sometimes spoken about as something that will, in the future, secure companies’ networks. However, cyber AI has already been deployed by thousands of companies to detect and fight back against increasingly advanced, fast-moving, and stealthy threats. This session will unpack the benefits and challenges of these deployments. By exploring the advantages of different machine learning approaches and talking about the potential barriers to adoption, this session will arm attendees with the knowledge they need to evaluate AI cyber defense for their own organizations.

Keynote by...

We partner CIOsynergy events with renowned keynotes that have pushed the limits of their profession to shape the future. Renowned founders, game changing CEO's, and tomorrow's futurists from the world's largest brands who share insights with the office of the CIO.
