The Artificial Reality of Cyber Defense presented at BSidesLuxembourg 2018

by Pascal Geenens,

Summary : Security threats are growing faster than security teams and budgets while there is a huge talent shortage in security. The proliferation of data from dozens of security products in complex environments is paradoxically making it harder, not easier, for teams to detect and investigate threats.Attackers already have an unfair advantage over the defenders in cyber-attacks, it's time for security strategies to leverage automation in detection and mitigation, restore the balance and increase our chances to come out on top in the war against cyber threats. This presentation will discuss the different options in automating the detection and mitigation of attacks, from traditional machine learning to advanced deep learning systems, their challenges, and applications, and where they fit in a modern cybersecurity strategy.
