As IT security threats continue to increase in prevalence and complexity, organizations are responding with larger IT security budgets to better monitor, manage, report and mitigate to them. The problem? The demand for security skills is now outpacing supply.

Today, there’s an estimated 208,000 vacant security positions across the world—a number that is expected to grow to 1.5 million by 2020. In this upcoming webinar, Cognition and the Future of Security, Sandy Bird, Global CTO of IBM Security, will discuss the key to curbing this labour shortfall: cognitive security.

This 60 minute webinar will delve into the current state of cognitive computing—more specifically, how today’s systems are able to learn, reason and interact with humans naturally rather than being programmed. It will explore how this type of computing can enhance cyber security by:

- Quickly identifying threat patterns
- Proactively investigating malicious data sources
- Determining a threat’s impact
- Devising options to address serious threats

Cognitive Computing is no longer a thing of the future. Today’s computers have the ability to be cognitive—and there’s nothing artificial about it. Join us on June 8 to learn how cognitive computing can help your organization mitigate today’s complex security threats.
