Abstract: How Machine Learning is Changing the Game in Breach Prevention

Your traditional defenses may not be adequate to protect against breaches caused by fileless malware attacks. This presentation will discuss how fileless malware-based threats differ from their predecessors and provide examples of various ways in which they are being used. It will also explain why traditional security tools are not able to detect these sophisticated attacks, and recommend steps that can be taken to combat this rapidly increasing threat vector.

Prior to BluVector he led SS8's threat research team and spent more than 5 years building deep packet inspection technology at SS8 and Northrop Grumman. Mike holds patents in topics related to security in cryptocurrency, one of his primary areas of interest.

Max Adams heads up Western Region Sales for BluVector. Max has been involved in the Information Security industry since 1995. He has experience in the areas of security consulting, managed services, security software, application security, machine learning based fraud prevention and network security.
