International Keynote Address: The future of security analytics: from static lists to machine learning

As we look back 20 years, what and how we defended our digital business was drastically different, yet the analytical outcome remains the same: detect and remediate threats in a timely manner. Threat actors have evolved, our environments have changed to include everything from traditional data centres to public clouds, network sessions are dark to direct inspection, and as a result, security analytics has had to innovate to keep pace. You should not have to be a data scientist to be an educated consumer of these advanced analytical techniques. In this talk, we will quickly review what machine learning is and set a foundation for talking about the different techniques, but more importantly, when to use it in certain applications and when not to use it. You will leave with six simple questions every security vendor applying machine learning should be able to answer and you will be a more educated consumer of this technology.
