Big data and security intelligence are the two hot topics in security for 2012. We are collecting more and more information from both the infrastructure, but increasingly also directly from our applications. This vast amount of data gets increasingly hard to understand. Terms like map reduce, hadoop, mongodb, etc. are part of many discussions. But what are those technologies? And what do they have to do with security intelligence? We will see that none of these technologies are sufficient in our quest to defend our networks and information. Data visualization is the only approach that scales to the ever changing threat landscape and infrastructure configurations.
Using big data data visualization techniques, you can gain a far deeper understanding of what’s happening on your network right now. You can uncover hidden patterns of data, identify emerging vulnerabilities and attacks, and respond decisively with countermeasures that are far more likely to succeed than conventional methods. The attendees will learn about log analysis, big data, get an overview of visualization, data sources for IT security, and learn how to generate visual representations of IT data. The training is filled with hands-on exercises utilizing the DAVIX live CD.
This workshop takes the audience on a fascinating journey of data analytics and visualization. The students will learn how to process data (log files), visualize them through actionable graphs, and analyze security related data. Past training attendees included employees of various Nation’s secret services, large security vendors, and security analysts from all over the world. All of them attended to learn how to deal with the flood of security related data in an efficient way. The in-depth technical content is backed up and emphasized by numerous hands-on exercises, some of them utilizing a private extension of the DAVIX live CD.
