Unsupervised learning to uncover advanced cyber attacks

Presented by

Rafael San Miguel Carrasco, Senior Specialist, British Telecom EMEA

About this talk

This case study is framed in a multinational company with 300k+ employees, present in 100+ countries, that is adding one extra layer of security based on big data analytics capabilities, in order to provide net-new value to their ongoing SOC-related investments. Having billions of events being generated on a weekly basis, real-time monitoring must be complemented with deep analysis to hunt targeted and advanced attacks. By leveraging a cloud-based Spark cluster, ElasticSearch, R, Scala and PowerBI, a security analytics platform based on anomaly detection is being progressively implemented. Anomalies are spotted by applying well-known analytics techniques, from data transformation and mining to clustering, graph analysis, topic modeling, classification and dimensionality reduction.
