Mastering AI Security Boot Camp (TTAI2820)

 

Course Overview

The Mastering AI Security Boot Camp, a three-day course geared for technical users keen to explore the intersection of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity. With AI transforming the cybersecurity landscape, a deep understanding of AI in security can enhance your efficiency in tackling security issues, formulating defense strategies, and fortifying your organization's security stance. Whether you're tackling security issues, designing advanced defense mechanisms, or simply looking to stay ahead of the curve, these skills can streamline your daily tasks and significantly contribute to your organization's security posture.

Working in a hands-on learning environment guided by our AI security expert, you’ll explore AI in cybersecurity, AI threats and vulnerabilities, defense mechanisms, forensics, incident response for AI systems, and future trends in AI security. You’ll gain an understanding of AI's role in security and threat intelligence, enabling you to better predict and understand emerging threats, resulting in proactive rather than reactive defense strategies. You’ll also learn about AI vulnerabilities and their mitigation. Identifying potential weaknesses in AI systems allows for more robust security measures, reducing the risk of breaches. You’ll also master incident response for AI systems. Handling security incidents effectively can drastically reduce the potential damage caused by breaches, ensuring business continuity.

The hands-on labs are designed to provide real-world scenarios that simulate challenges faced in the field. You will be analyzing AI-driven threats, identifying vulnerabilities in AI systems, designing an AI-driven Intrusion Detection System, conducting a basic AI forensic analysis, and developing an incident response plan for an AI system. Tools and skills used in the class include Python, Scikit-learn and open-source threat intelligence platforms. Upon completing the course you’ll be well equipped to understand and mitigate AI threats, design and implement AI defense systems, and effectively respond to incidents in AI systems.
