Join Jay Jacobs, Charles Givre, and Bob Rudis for a hands-on, in-depth exploration into the foundations of security data science. You’ll learn how to explore and analyze data you probably already have and gain valuable exposure to and experience with tools and techniques to prepare, analyze, and visualize the knowledge hiding in your data. Jay, Charles, and Bob guide you through working with three hands-on, practical applications with real data, introducing each in a language-agnostic approach before providing language-specific guidance for hands-on work. A GitHub repository with the examples will be available so that you can revisit the examples and continue learning after the training.
If you are a security analyst and need to leverage more data in your analyses, are working in operations and know you can pull out more from the data you have, or already identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in systems and networks but need to better communicate your team’s findings during engagements, this is the training for you.
