This is an interactive workshop, with the goal of teaching security professionals how to implement data science techniques in order to obtain valuable insights from their data. The combination of data science and security allows the security community to transform assumptions, opinions and beliefs into knowledge. This workshop teaches attendees data science concepts, techniques and processes for analyzing various security datasets.
Student Requirements: Technical Skills: No previous experience in data science is necessary. High-level understanding of programming is recommended.
Materials Needed: Students will be required to bring their own laptops. Laptops will need a VMWare Workstation or VirtualBox installation with an install of any operating systems is fine, as well as the installation of Python3 and Jupyter Notebooks. I will provide a Ubuntu VM if necessary, all other tools will be provided.
Topics Covered: Data Science Process, Machine Learning Process, Intrusion Detection
We will end with a competition on who can build the most accurate intrusion detection system.
