In an age where foreign actors are increasingly using cyberattacks to take down both commercial and government targets—crippling a country’s ability to act quickly—this panel explores how AI will shape the future of conflict across the cyber domain.


We will discuss current examples of our vulnerabilities. China and Russia are rapidly gaining status as competitors of the United States in the commercial and national security applications of AI. We'll explore what technologies are needed most, how the cybersecurity & defense industry can collaborate with leaders and enhance the protection of their companies and their people in the age of “informationized warfare.”
