The Power and Promise of Watson for Cyber SecurityIBM's Borrett and Smarttech's Murphy on How Supercomputer Can Complement Security Teams
How can a supercomputer help enterprise security teams respond to today's evolving threat landscape? Martin Borrett of IBM and Ronan Murphy of Smarttech discuss the promise and impact of Watson for Cyber Security.
Earlier this year, IBM announced the availability of Watson for Cyber Security, described as "the industry's first augmented intelligence technology designed to power cognitive security operations centers." But how will Watson complement human security teams? And what do beta customers say about their initial experiences with the system?
In a video interview recorded at Infosecurity Europe in London, IBM's Martin Borrett and Ronan Murphy, CEO of IBM customer Smarttech, discuss:
- The development of Watson for Cyber Security;
- How security teams can benefit from Watson's capabilities;
- Questions security leaders must ask to gauge their enterprise's readiness for Watson.

He leads IBM's Security Blueprint work and is co-author of the IBM Redbooks "Introducing the IBM Security Framework and IBM Security Blueprint to Realize Business-Driven Security" and "Understanding SOA Security."
