About the lecture: Cyber security meets mathematics.

In a world that is becoming more interconnected day-by-day, the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and systems receives increasing attention. At Deloitte, we see this reflected in a growing number of requests from our clients to help them innovate their cyber security detection and response.
One of the big challenges in cyber security is extracting useful insights from the large amounts of security-related data that is generated every day (for some organizations, terabytes per day). Traditional approaches such as signature- and ruled-based alerting are no longer enough to counter the growing professionalism of advanced persistent attackers. Manual analysis is also increasingly being phased out for automated analysis.
In this presentation, we discuss how data analytics can make an impact in cyber security. We cover supervised and unsupervised machine learning in particular. We also present practical examples of where we improved a client's cyber security.
