SC Media: Google security veteran warns AI cyber-defences won’t help. “Google security veteran Heather Adkins warned artificial intelligence powered cyber-defences won’t help thwart cybe-rattacks adding that companies are better off paying a bunch of junior engineers to patch vulnerabilities all day. Adkins is a founding member of Google’s security team and warned an audience at TechCrunch Disrupt 2017 in San Francisco that AI cyber-defences will produce too many false positives and that AI-powered security software can barely stop 1970’s era attack methods, according to CNBC.”
