Vendor data science buzzwords hacked presented at BSidesLondon 2019

by Thordis Thorsteins,

Summary : In this talk I will go through buzzwords commonly used by security vendors, explain what they mean from a data science perspective and give advice on how to treat them with a healthy dose of scepticism. Think "Artificial Intelligence", "Data Driven" and "Advanced Analysis". These terms can all describe important approaches that are used in security data science, but they tend to be used too freely, potentially with the aim of blinding security teams with science and avoiding giving too much away. After this talk the audience will walk away with an arsenal to decode these buzzwords and the knowledge to ask pertinent question to vendors to discover what their products are *really* doing under the hood.
