Voice of Security Radio: A Security Partnership with Machine Learning
Information security is complicated. There's no getting around that. Technology got us into the situation -- can it help get us out? More to the point, can a partnership between humans and machine learning help teams respond to complex security situations fast enough to keep the damage from piling up?
That's the discussion that this episode of Voice of Security Radio will bring to you. Security Now editor Curt Franklin will talk with Steve Grobman, CTO of McAfee, about what an effective machine learning and human partnership will mean for infosec -- and how close we actually are to making that partnership a reality.
Steve Grobman is senior vice president and chief technology officer (CTO) for McAfee. In this role, Grobman sets the technical strategy and direction to create technologies which protect smart, connected computing devices and infrastructure worldwide. He drives McAfee innovation and leads thousands of technical resources to deliver robust and sophisticated cybersecurity solutions that protect corporate and consumer assets. Grobman is a trusted advisor to the industry and media in the field of cybersecurity defense and the evolving threat landscape.
Prior to joining McAfee, Grobman was at Intel where he spent over two decades in senior technical leadership positions related to the field of cybersecurity. His roles varied from protecting Intelís own assets as an IT security architect to building new security architecture into hardware and software as the chief architect for Intelís vPro platform. After the acquisition of McAfee in 2012, Grobman moved into the CTO office to drive new research and innovation capabilities for the division and was named worldwide CTO in 2014.
He has published multiple technical papers and books, and holds 24 U.S. and international patents in the fields of security, software, and computer architecture, with another roughly 20 patents pending.
