Bursting the AI Bubble

AI has been cleverly used as a marketing tool but let's really put this tech to the test...

Format: In-Person Event

Date: September 29th, 2022

Time: 3:30 PM


Every AI technology claims to be the best, but how do we know whether one solution is really superior to its competitors? AI is a topic of interest that is often over discussed, with themes of machine intelligence even featuring in films like Blade Runner and iRobot.

At this event, we want to show you some of AI’s most unique, and less renowned, capabilities including:

  • Behavioural science and data analytics – detecting and remediating malicious emails that would otherwise get through traditional SEGs.
  • NDR threat detection and response that filters out the noise, only showing you the alerts that matter most, reducing alert fatigue.
  • Zero Trust and AI integration that prevents breaches by making applications, data and services inaccessible to attackers while allowing trusted users to securely and directly connect to protected resources from anywhere.

Come join us for an immersive experience of ‘machine versus man’. Witness a  pen-test demonstration using Pentera as we put some of our favourite technologies to the test.


3:30 PM Welcome – Tea, Coffee & Networking
4:00 PM Live validation of Vectra, SentinelOne AI, with the use of Pentera technology
4:30 PM Panel: Is AI made equal and how can we put it to the test?
5:00 PM Guest Speaker: FC
6:00 PM Drinks Reception
6:45 PM Dinner (two courses)
9:30 PM Transport to hotel


Learning Outcomes

Learn about the unique ways AI can be used to: prevent malicious email attacks commonly missed my traditional SEGs; reduce notification fatigue; and ensure that all applications, data and services remain inaccessible to attackers while allowing trusted users to connect to trusted resources from anywhere. We will also be showing you how you can validate your current technology stack and ensure that it does exactly what it promises -put your current AI to the test.
