This statement is neither common nor generally accepted by cyber security leaders. This session will focus on all the reasons that we believe data science is fundamental to building a successful and mature cyber security program, and what the implications are for cyber security professionals. In particular we’ll discuss two ways to use data science fundamentals in cyber security programs:

  1. Improve data analytics supporting cybersecurity programs (KPIs, risk management, process effectiveness)
  2. Use model-driven security and real-time data streaming to match data attributes to known patterns resulting in deviation scores with a threshold that trigger automated actions in front-line cyber controls in milliseconds

Led by Jim Routh — Security & Risk Advisor and Board Member and Former Risk Leader at MassMutual, Aetna, JP Morgan Chase, KPMG, DTCC, and American Express — this lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with Cybersecurity Experts offering their own perspectives and the implications for cyber security professionals going forward, as well as the talent development implications of using data science in a cybersecurity program.
