January 2015 Information Security Meetup - Agenda TBD - So far we have the following - will finalize the schedule as we get closer to the date:
Introduction to Big Data Techniques for Cybersecurity
The cybersecurity vendor community has no shortage of marketing buzzwords: APT, kill chain, cyber terrain, etc. However, perhaps the most hyped buzzword of them all is Big Data. In this talk we will provide a no-nonsense introduction to open source Big Data tools, such as Apache Hadoop, Apache Accumulo, and Apache Spark and how they can be utilized to combat advanced cyber threats.
The team at Sqrrl has years of experience of putting these Big Data tools to work against petabyte-scale cybersecurity datasets within the US Intelligence Community and at Fortune 100 companies. They will provide some of their lessons learned and best practices on how these tools can be used. they will also show a specific example of Sqrrls approach to Big Data Security Analytics.
