Big Data Technology – The Real World ‘Minority Report’
Brian Foster
Notacon 11

This talk will take a deep dive into the role of Big Data technologies and further examine how predictive security analytics are shifting the way organizations approach their security posture. It will highlight three systems (Notos, Pleiades and ExecScent), co-developed at Georgia Tech, which harness technologies like Hadoop and Cassandra to ‘see’ threats as they emerge.
Brian Foster brings over 25 years of successful product management and development experience to Damballa. Recently, Brian was senior vice president of product management for consumer security at McAfee, where he directed the strategy and development of consumer and mobile security solutions. Before focusing on consumer, Foster also directed the strategy and development of McAfee’s enterprise security solutions. Foster expanded McAfee’s enterprise product line to over 80 products, played key roles in numerous acquisitions including the Intel acquisition, and took an integral role in creating McAfee’s differentiated technical strategy around Integrated and Deep Security. Foster spent over 20 years at Symantec growing from technical support to roles in software engineering, project management, development, and product management on lines such as Norton Utilities and Norton AntiVirus. He spent eight years at Symantec managing the commercial desktop and server security product lines. Foster earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and has attended the Executive Program in Management at the University of California, Los Angeles.
