Check Point CSO Itai Greenberg on the Impact of IoT, Cloud AI and Deep Learning
Modern technologies are a double-edged sword in cybersecurity, says Itai Greenberg, chief strategy officer at Check Point Software Technologies.
The proliferation of IoT devices and cloud computing since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the attack landscape and created the need for defenders to fortify their position. But emerging technologies such as AI and deep learning offer new advantages for responding to and neutralizing zero-day malware threats, Greenberg says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Greenberg also discusses:
- How IoT and cloud computing have changed the attack landscape;
- How AI and deep learning can thwart never-before-seen threats;
- The biggest challenges around securing small and medium-sized businesses.
