Itsik Mantin (ISR)

Short biography:

In the last 20 years, I had researched and innovated in many security domains, including web application security, APT, DRM systems, automotive systems, data security and more. While thinking as an attacker is my second nature, my first nature is problem solving and algorithm development – in the past in cryptography and watermarking, and today mostly around harnessing ML/AI technology to solve security-related problems. While I am fascinated with bleeding edge technologies like AI and federated learning and the opportunities these technologies unlock, as a security veteran I am also continuously asking what can go wrong and the answer is never NULL.
I am the inventor of 20 patents in security, cryptography, data science and privacy-preserving computation arenas. I hold an M. Sc. in Applied Math and Computer Science from the Weizmann Institute.
