Beyond Math: Practical Security Analytics - Martin Holste (BSides Augusta 2016) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Beyond Math: Practical Security Analytics
Martin Holste

Math is hard, but security is harder. You don't have to be a data scientist to use practical security analytics to simplify security data into meaningful output. This talk will outline what's broken in the field of security analytics and then deep-dive into practical analytical strategies for long-term defense. These simple techniques will provide everyday value to your security team which can leverage them for faster incident response and hunting without requiring a PhD in mathematics.

Martin Holste is a cofounder of the Threat Analytics Platform at FireEye, Inc. He is the author of the Enterprise Log Search and Archive and StreamDB open-source projects and has over a decade of experience in the security-incident response field in the public and private sectors. He has spoken at many conferences over the years for both security and data science.
