Machine Learning in Threat Detection: Challenges and Possible Solutions

Machine learning (ML) has been applied in many technology areas, e.g., image recognition, recommender systems, and many more. Its application in cybersecurity, especially in threat detection, has gained more traction lately, with many security vendors introducing it into their products to win more customers. However, the use of ML in threat detection comes with challenges that need to be addressed before the industry can effectively reap its benefits in this area. This talk will highlight the challenges of applying ML to threat detection and suggest ways to solve these highlighted issues.
