Official description

Build smart cybersecurity systems with the power of machine learning and deep learning to protect your corporate assets

Key Features

  • Identify and predict security threats using artificial intelligence
  • Develop intelligent systems that can detect unusual and suspicious patterns and attacks
  • Learn how to test the effectiveness of your AI cybersecurity algorithms and tools

Book Description

Today's organizations spend billions of dollars globally on cybersecurity. Artificial intelligence has emerged as a great solution for building smarter and safer security systems that allow you to predict and detect suspicious network activity, such as phishing or unauthorized intrusions.

This cybersecurity book presents and demonstrates popular and successful AI approaches and models that you can adapt to detect potential attacks and protect your corporate systems. You'll learn about the role of machine learning and neural networks, as well as deep learning in cybersecurity, and you'll also learn how you can infuse AI capabilities into building smart defensive mechanisms. As you advance, you'll be able to apply these strategies across a variety of applications, including spam filters, network intrusion detection, botnet detection, and secure authentication.

By the end of this book, you'll be ready to develop intelligent systems that can detect unusual and suspicious patterns and attacks, thereby developing strong network security defenses using AI.

What you will learn

  • Detect email threats such as spamming and phishing using AI
