Cloudsine | WebOrion® Supports the Launch of community-focused AI Security Quarter in Div0 on 31 Mar 2021

AI Security Quarter of Div0 was officially launched on 31 Mar 2021 over virtual Zoom and attended by >50 cybersecurity and AI enthusiasts in Singapore.

Cybersecurity and AI are both critically important technologies for the digital future. Attackers are using more automation and AI to help them probe and attack systems. In addition, adversarial attacks on native AI systems are becoming a bigger concern. Hence, it is imperative to help cybersecurity specialists build up their AI awareness and knowledge so that they can incorporate more automation and intelligent AI systems to counter attackers, and provide advisories on securing AI systems.

AI Security Quarter (AISQ) was started with the intent to connect enthusiasts in the intersection of AI and cybersecurity and to empower cybersecurity practitioners with AI awareness and knowledge. AISQ will be learning and sharing about two major topics:

• Using AI to solve cyber security problems
• Discuss and share about adversarial attacks on AI systems and their countermeasures
