Egress, a leading provider of data privacy and compliance software designed to secure unstructured data, today announced that its Director of Technical Services for North America, Jon Mead, will present a session titled, "Machine Learning: Addressing the Disillusionment to Bring Actual Business Benefit," at the 2019 ISSA CISO Executive Forum, taking place June 13-14, 2019 in Boston.
Egress recently released Risk-Based Protection, which uses machine learning to analyze end-users' behavior and interactions to prescribe actions or processes, such as right-sizing email encryption in line with the actual risk of a data breach and preventing emails being sent to incorrect recipients.
In this presentation, Mead will cover how to take a business problem and solve it with machine learning, highlight common pitfalls that companies face when employing machine learning, and provide an overview of how Egress as an organization addressed these pitfalls in a real-world example.

|?Machine learning' is one of those cringy phrases, almost (if not already) taboo in the world of high-tech SaaS. Applying true machine learning to an organization's product(s), however, can have real benefit for the business, their clients, and the industry as a whole. From credit card fraud investigations to the way that a car is built, machine learning has permeated our everyday life without a common understanding of what it is and how to implement it.|
