Please wish me luck! My next research quarter (that I just started up) will be an ultimate example of schizophrenia. Specifically, I will handle two separate projects:
- Using “big data” methods and analytic approaches for security (this research will go into my paper on “SIEM Futures” or maybe into a new paper)
- Patching and otherwise remediating vulnerabilities in operating systems and applications (this research will update my existing VM research)
In other words, I will travel the entire realm of security maturity from “how to we patch Windows effectively?” [yes, people do still ask that!] all the way to “how do we detect novel attacks in petabytes of data?” in the land of Hadoop, MongoDB, neural networks and AIs.
As usual, my call to action:
- Vendors, got anything to say about using “big data” methods for security? Here is a briefing link … you know what to do!
- Enterprises, got a “big data helps security” story – either a WIN story or a FAIL story – to share? Hit the comments or email me privately (Gartner client NDA will cover it, if you are a client).
- Security consultants focused on analytics, got a “big data” analytics story (maybe inspired by your recent project) to share? I’d love to hear it as well!
P.S. OK, fine, you can also share a patching story .. I won’t hold it against you
