Monthly Threat Webinar Series - December, 2020

Malicious Uses of AI
by Cybercriminals

Recorded December 17th | On Demand


Although artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are used extensively to fight cybercrime, they’re starting to be utilized by malicious actors.

This month, I am joined by Senior Threat Researcher, David Sancho. We’ll review an exclusive research project, created as a joint effort between Trend Micro Research, The United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), and Europol, to give you up-to-date findings on this pressing issue.

Join the monthly threat webinar and live Q&A session as we also discuss:

  • The malicious uses of this technology by cybercriminals and other threat actors
  • What we’re seeing today and what we’ll be seeing in the future, courtesy of our guest, Trend Micro researcher, David Sancho
  • How malicious actors plan to use AI and ML against us
