Machine Learning For Security Professionals: Building And Hacking ML Systems

Back to the list of Speakers and Sessions

Our training provides an intuitive introduction to machine learning for security professionals with no prior knowledge of mathematics or ML. In the ML4SEC section attendees will gain hands-on experience building MLpowered defensive and offensive security tools using popular libraries like Tensorflow, Keras, Pytorch, and sklearn. We’ll cover the entire ML pipeline, from pre-processing data to building, training, evaluating, and predicting with ML models. In the SEC4ML section we’ll address vulnerabilities in state-of-the-art machine learning methodologies, including adversarial learning, model stealing, data poisoning, and model inference. Participants will work with vulnerable ML applications to gain a thorough understanding of these vulnerabilities and learn possible mitigation strategies. Our training provides practical knowledge that security professionals can apply in their work
