Arkose Accelerate – October 2023
The Convergence of AI and Cybersecurity
The event revolved around the pivotal moment when AI and cybersecurity converged, signaling a paradigm shift in how we protect our digital ecosystems. Employing AI is no longer just an option—it's an urgent choice that can either propel us forward as proactive defenders or leave us trailing behind as threats advance.
Key Takeaways from Arkose Accelerate
- Insight from Arkose Global Intelligence Network: Founder and CEO of Arkose Labs, Kevin Gosschalk, spent some time discussing the three principles of fighting adversaries: increase their costs, decrease their value, and deliver real-world consequences. We arm our customers with capabilities to achieve all three, ultimately thwarting fraudsters’ efforts. Because Arkose Labs supports enterprises across different verticals, we are fortunate to have a panoramic view of attack patterns across industries. From expanding cybercrime-as-a-service to GenAI-based scraping bots to the surprising resurgence of card testing, Kevin covers all the threat territory businesses today need to know.
- Breakdown of Top Threats: Our Bot Abuse Index measures the volumetric attacks we are seeing across various industries. In fact, businesses today are facing ten times the surge of criminal attacks and fraud, threats that are costing organizations tens of billions of dollars a year. The confluence of advanced persistent threats, cybercrime as a service (CaaS), DIY fraudsters, and sophisticated attackers who take advantage of the gap between identification and remediation is what’s driving today’s attack ecosystem.
- Actionable Expert Insight: One highlight was the wealth of knowledge shared by expert and experienced CISO, Jim Routh. As a renowned security expert, he provided valuable recommendations about what enterprise CISOs need to do to lead the way in AI governance—and how its evolution is affecting security technology. As a publicly available LLM, ChatGPT is trained on a vast amount of publicly accessible data collected from various corners of the web. This extensive training equips it with an abundance of information, enabling it to generate a wide array of comprehensive answers for nearly any question posed to it. Jim reminds us, the current attack surface using a public LLM can lead to serious problems like corrupted code, misinformation, and tainted software. He discusses the need to appoint governance for these LLM moving forward, ensuring quality and reliance, something every business should learn to maneuver.
- Arkose Labs Product Roadmap: Our CPO, Ashish Jain, shared the upcoming product roadmap during the event. Aside from discussion of Arkose Bot Manager’s capabilities, he outlines the way enterprises can use the massive amount of real-time data provided by our solution. While our 24/7 SOC support team works behind the scenes, our multi-layered defense system is what gives us the confidence to offer three separate $1M warranties for card testing, SMS toll fraud, and credential testing. From device intelligence to WCAG compliance to email intelligence and phishing dashboard, there was much to learn about the Arkose Labs’ roadmap.
