What Can Data Science Do for Security? - Wendy Edwards (Circle City Con 2019 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

What Can Data Science Do for Security?
Wendy Edwards

@wayward710
Circle City Con 2019

We present a high-level overview of how data science is used to extract insights from security data. Data science is an interdisciplinary field encompassing math, statistics, information science and computer science that gleans actionable information from data. With cybersecurity, data science often attempts to differentiate between the normal and the malicious. Data science has been applied to network security monitoring and malware analysis. We discuss some general principles and terminology and walk through examples.

Wendy is a software developer interested in data science and security. She's contributed to open source software projects and participated in NASA Datanauts and Space Apps Challenge. She was also a member of the 2017 SANS Women's Academy, earned the GIAC GSEC, GCIH, and GCIA certificates, and joined the SANS Advisory Board.
