Cyber Security technology has become THE critical defense mechanism for individuals, companies, and governments. The number of annual cyber attacks has been on the rise annually for the last 10 years. These attacks have become increasingly sophisticated. Methods of detection and prevention have, by necessity, had to become more sophisticated as well. The days of simple virus signature scanning and port monitoring are no loner capable of withstanding these threats. As a result, new, advanced technologies are being developed and implemented to prevent attacks, and to allow deep investigation of methods and patterns associated with security infringement. In this lecture, we will discuss many of the new methods that are being developed and deployed to strengthen our defenses. We will discuss techniques adapted from Artificial Intelligence and from Machine Learning to understand how they are being applied, and how they can be used to effectively circumvent the myriad of newly developing attack scenarios. We will discuss current governmental security technologies like Einstein 2 and 3, and also various commercial and theoretical systems

09:00 – 09:50 Implementing a Quantitative Risk Program

A presentation on how to build a holistic risk program that deals with the challenge faced by traditional quantitative risk frameworks – the unknown. The program introduces “the prediction life-cycle” that is used to; build and validate risk models, objectively measure precision and accuracy limits, and make defensible future predictions based upon historical data. While Mike’s model has its roots in FAIR, you will be intrigued by additional thought he has applied towards this reputable model.
