SANS CyberCast - SANS@Mic - I\\'m Sorry Dave, I Can\\'t Do That: Practical Machine Learning for Information Security (New Course Preview!)

  • Webcast Aired Monday, 23 Mar 2020 8:30PM EDT (24 Mar 2020 00:30 UTC)
  • Speaker: David Hoelzer

Every security vendor under the sun is telling you that you need their AI or Machine Learning solution. Are they worth the money? How do they work? Can they really perform the way the vendors promise? In this talk we'll demystify the terms being used and show you what Machine Learning *really* means. We'll cap things off with a real-time network traffic classification system built from scratch!

David Hoelzer is currently completing a web-only training series on \Applied Machine Learning for Information Security" that will be released within the next few months. This is your chance to hear just a bit of what will be taught in this new class!

For a copy of the Jupyter Notebook used by David during the first 60 minutes of the presentation, please visit 'https://github.com/dhoelzer/ShowMeThePackets.'the notebook and supporting data can be found in the 'Machine Learning ' folder.'the notebook in that repository includes much greater detail and explanations of what's happening and the theory that was discussed. 'We look forward to building Machine Learning solutions together in SEC503 (https://www.sans.org/course/intrusion-detection-in-depth) 'or in the upcoming Applied Machine Learning series!
