Cyber Security Monitoring Still Full of Challenges

Category: Security Intelligence,Visualization — Raffael Marty @ 8:33 am

I was greatly honored when I got an invitation from the Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) to give a talk about data mining and cyber security.

Knowing me, you might be able to guess the topic I chose to present: Visual Analytics. I am focussing on not the visualization layer or the data layer, but on the analytics layer. In the presentation I am showing what we have been doing with data analytics and data mining in cyber security. I am showing some examples for three topics:

  • Situational Awareness
  • Exploration and Discovery
  • Forensics

At the end, I am presenting a number of challenges to the community; hard problems that we need help with to advance insights into cyber security of infrastructures and applications. The following slide summarizes the challenges I see in data mining for security:

If you have any suggestions on each of the challenges, please contact me or comment on this post!
