Topic: The Joys and Pains of Researching in Cybersecurity
Abstract: When people think of data science in cybersecurity they naturally think of intrusion detection, malware identification and other “catch the hacker” analytic tools. But what if we switched focus to the defenders and looked at the decisions, policies and systems that help shape the security posture of an organization? This talk will dive into data from tens of thousands of organizations and share the insights along with the joys and pains from sifting for signal among terabytes of cybersecurity data.
