Topic:  The intersection of AI and cybersecurity

Quote: “AI is a force multiplier. It helps you to do things better and faster at scale, but it is a force multiplier for the attackers too. They can test and operate much more efficiently and as a result they can create super targeted campaigns, including phishing, deep fakes to compromise your business or ways to assess your defenses.”
