Threats for Machine Learning

 In Threats

The pre­sen­ta­tion illus­trates where machine learn­ing appli­ca­tions can be attacked, the means for car­ry­ing out the attack and some mit­i­ga­tions that can be employed. The ele­ments in build­ing and deploy­ing a machine learn­ing appli­ca­tion are reviewed, con­sid­er­ing both data and process­es. The impact of attacks on each ele­ment is con­sid­ered in turn. Special atten­tion is given to trans­fer learn­ing, a pop­u­lar way to con­struct quick­ly a machine learn­ing appli­ca­tion. Mitigations to these attacks are dis­cussed with the engi­neer­ing trade­offs between secu­ri­ty and accu­ra­cy. Finally, the meth­ods by which an attack­er could get access to the machine learn­ing system are reviewed.

What atten­dees will learn:

  • What are the new attack sur­faces exposed by machine learn­ing appli­ca­tion
  • What is the trade­off between secu­ri­ty and accu­ra­cy in a machine learn­ing appli­ca­tion
  • How might machine learn­ing appli­ca­tions be attacked

Who should attend?

  • Cyber secu­ri­ty ana­lyst
  • Machine learn­ing appli­ca­tion devel­op­er
  • Manager of data sci­ence or machine learn­ing team

Speaker and Presenter Information

 Dr. Mark Sherman is the Technical Director of the Cybersecurity Foundations group at CERT within CMU’s Software Engineering Institute. His team focus­es on foun­da­tion­al research on the life cycle for build­ing secure soft­ware and on data ana­lyt­ics in cyber secu­ri­ty. Before coming to CERT, Dr. Sherman was at IBM and var­i­ous star­tups, work­ing on mobile sys­tems, inte­grat­ed hard­ware-soft­ware appli­ances, trans­ac­tion pro­cess­ing, lan­guages and com­pil­ers, vir­tu­al­iza­tion, net­work pro­to­cols and data­bas­es. Dr. Sherman received his under­grad­u­ate degrees from MIT and his PhD in Computer Science from CMU.
