When Red Herrings Are the Answer: Data Engineering & Data Science for Proactive Cyber Event Detection

By: Jeff Archer, Sr. Staff Cybersecurity Researcher (GE Aviation)


Threat hunting, machine learning, artificial intelligence: Aside from being taglines on every cyber security vendor's product sheet today, these are legitimate areas of research and strategy at the forefront of cyber security in both the private industry and academia.

Traditional, reactive detection methods continue to provide value in quick and standardized sharing of signatures and indicators of compromise, but more and more organizations are looking to augment this strategy with behavioral- or heuristic-based detection, and they want it done today...until they realize what it entails.

At the core of all of these methods is data, and lots of it. Proactive detection of cyber security events relies on using data engineering and data science to provide security analysts the information they need to test hunt hypotheses and detect anomalies in their environment, and making it as easy as possible to do so.

Jeff Archer will speak to GE Aviation's latest effort in wrangling the telemetry available to create new, proactive detection measures using a data engineering framework called Magnus. Along the way, he will share lessons learned from the project and its future role in allowing for the testing of data science- and machine learning-driven detection.
