Artificial Intelligence for Cyber Threat Intelligence Analysis

Speaker:  Federico Cerutti – Brescia, Italy
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy

Abstract

Cyber Threat Intelligence is the cyclic process analysts use to produce knowledge about weaknesses of one or more organisation's assets that can be exploited by one or more threats. Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques can significantly support cyber security intelligence operations if tasks and responsibilities are effectively shared between human analysts and machine. AI techniques excel in some situational understanding tasks, for instance, classifying intrusions. However, existing AI systems are often overconfident in their classification: this reduces the trust of human analysts. Moreover, sophisticated intrusions span across long periods: this makes detection more difficult. Finally, it is paramount for an analyst to be fully aware of each countermeasure's unintended side effects. With this lecture, the attendees will acquire an understanding of the fundamental concepts of cyber threat intelligence analysis, its role in cyber security operations, and the state-of-the-art tools and techniques artificial intelligence offers to support them. This is particularly important given the recent number of cyber incidents that often target essential utilities such as power distribution grids.
