Why Humans Alone Can't Beat CybercrimeRubrik CEO Sinha on Why Defenders Need Latest Tech to Keep Up With Threat Actors
Cybercrime has grown considerably in the last several years. The scope, velocity and variability of attacks have increased, as has the attack surface - and it's impossible for humans alone to understand, correlate, find the cause, analyze and fix it, said Bipul Sinha, co-founder and CEO of Rubrik.
Threat actors are using artificial intelligence and machine learning to make attacks more sophisticated, he said. "But on the other hand, AI and ML can also be used for good to understand the intent of a particular event, if the event correlated with a broader set of activities, if it could potentially be a zero-day or an unpatched vulnerability, and where humans can intervene to solve the problem," he said.
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Sinha discusses:
- How defenders can use AI;
- The advantages of an advisory board to help formulate cybersecurity best practices;
- The benefits of partnerships with industry peers;
Sinha, an entrepreneur and an engineer, also serves as a partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners. Previously at Lightspeed, he focused on the software, mobile and internet sectors. He worked at Blumberg Capital, where he was the founding investor and board member of Nutanix and Hootsuite. Sinha also held engineering positions at Oracle Corp., American Megatrends and IBM. He holds several patents in distributed computing.
