Sausalito, Calif. – Feb. 17, 2024

Google’s ‘AI Cyber Defense Initiative,’ launched at the Munich Security Conference on Feb. 16, signals a belief that the company’s experience in deploying AI can help to reverse what it calls the defender’s dilemma.

In this podcast episode, Heather Adkins, VP, Security Engineering at Google, joins Cybercrime Magazine host and Editor-in-Chief Steve Morgan to discuss how the initiative will see Google making new commitments to invest in AI-ready infrastructure, as well as releasing release new tools for defenders, alongside new research and security training.

How do we change the game for cyber?” asks Adkins.

Google published a new report during the Munich conference, Secure, Empower, Advance: How AI Can Reverse the Defender’s Dilemma, which highlights the newly proposed policy and technology agenda, according to Forbes.

“We believe AI affords the best opportunity to upend the Defender’s Dilemma, and tilt the scales of cyberspace to give defenders a decisive advantage over attackers” Google says in its report.
