The team came up with a B2B solution involving a browser extension, Ph!sh, that uses a convolution neural network to proactively check if a website a user is visiting, is a phishing attempt. Current solutions require a user's information to be compromised and for the URL to be reported, before others can be protected while the team's solution detects a phishing attempt in real-time by identifying visual similarities before checking against the URL. Congrats to Denise and her teammates!
