Episode 23: Data science and security visibility

Episode 23: Data science and security visibility

How can we best apply data science techniques to gain security visibility?

What data you collect obviously affects your detection capabilities, but as many have painfully experienced; there can be too much of a good thing!

In this episode, Robby is joined by Jeff Barto. He is the Chief Security Officer at a large hedge fund in the US, has worked in security for over 20 years and has a lot of experience asking himself the question “how much data is enough?”. Jeff takes us through what types of data is he collecting and why, and how to collect data smartly to get the detection capabilities you need.

Robby and Jeff also discuss their take on the future of data science and security visibility, and whether now is the time to ditch people and leave security for the machines?
