  Background AI can be a double-edged sword for cybersecurity. Advanced machine learning technology is enabling cybersecurity systems to detect, prevent and react to ever more sophisticated cyberattacks. At the same time, AI is making sophisticated cyberattacks easier and faster, creating greater incentives for hackers to attack, and increasing their destructive consequences.  
  Objective With this webinar, speakers from public and private cybersecurity sector will address the advantages, recent threats/trends, and challenges that come with the implementation of AI in cybersecurity. They will explore why companies and the government in Korea need to develop AI protection and how to establish comprehensive AI cybersecurity protection.
