What's Behind "Big Data" and "Behavioral Analytics" presented at SecTor 2014

by Stephan Jou,

Summary : “Big Data” and “Behavioral Analytics” are the latest hot terms in threat detection, but what do they mean and how do they work when applied to security?
This presentation will uncover the math behind behavioral analytics explaining the principles and mathematics that make accurate threat detection based on anomalous behavior possible. It will explain why "big data" is required to drive the equations and how different types of data can be used to detect different attack vectors. Focusing on detection accuracy, the presentation will explore existing attack vectors and how behavioral analytics can be applied through today's technology to increase early detection. The presentation will conclude with a look at the future of behavioral analytics and how it will change the existing landscape of threat defense.
