Machine Learning for Security Operations: A Gentle Introduction

Wednesday, May 15 | 9:15AM–10:15AM CT | Vevey 1-2, Second Floor Event Centre
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
No doubt by now everyone has encountered machine learning in some way or another. Your vendor probably mentioned it, your SIEM may be doing it, and your colleagues might even have experimented with a classifier or two. Maybe you even have a few ideas yourself. This talk aims to give a sober-minded overview without the hype and give practitioners enough resources to launch their own machine learning projects specifically in the information security domain.

Outcomes: Become familiar with machine learning methodology * Gain exposure to existing tools, methods, and free data resources * Have enough training to either launch your own machine learning initiative or at least critically assess proposed initiatives
