Cybersecurity is an ever-evolving field, with artificial intelligence (AI) becoming a pivotal player in both offense and defense. The use of AI in offensive cybersecurity has the potential to revolutionize the tactics and strategies employed by malicious actors, while also enhancing the capabilities of security professionals to protect against cyber threats. The promises and pitfalls associated with the intersection of AI and offensive cybersecurity are the central focus of this panel. This panel aims to bring together a diverse group of experts, including practitioners and academics, to explore the multifaceted landscape of offensive cybersecurity empowered by AI. The discussion will delve into the potential benefits, ethical concerns, and technical challenges associated with the use of AI in offensive operations, as well as the broader implications for the cybersecurity community, businesses, and society as a whole.

  • How do AI-driven cyberattacks reshape the threat landscape?
  • What are the ethical implications and dilemmas related to AI-driven offensive cybersecurity, including the potential for automated attacks, accountability, and responsible use?
  • What strategies and technologies exist for defending against AI-driven cyberattacks, including the role of AI in threat detection and incident response?
  • Which legal and regulatory challenges, including challenges regarding international norms and standards does AI pose in offensive cybersecurity?
