PVCSec Episode 7: Data Scientists!

Dear Friends,

The next episode of the PVC Security Podcast, the seventh in a collector’s series, is upon you!

This week, we have data scientists Alex Pinto (@alexcpsec, Chief Data Scientist at the MLSec Project) and Bob Rudis (@hrbrmstr, co-author of Data-Driven Security: Analysis, Visualization and Dashboards <- Amazon affiliate link; all proceeds go into the PVC Security Podcast & web site).

We sing! We laugh! We talk big data and machine learning and statistics and Vendor Persistent Threat (VPT) / Shiny Object Syndrome (SOS)! We use lots of exclamation points!

Comments and questions are welcome as always. You can #askpvcsec on Twitter or email us at [email protected]

Show Notes:

  • Ed’s spreadsheet is here. The notes on how to use it and the commands for Cisco kit are on the third tab in the spreadsheet. The first tab is a sample, and the second is a blank version.
  • You can use the spreadsheet for other vendor’s gear, such as Juniper and HP. You will need to translate the Cisco commands to your platform. Share your tweaks.
  • Paul’s narrative write-up on RDRDS is available on his blog here. Comments, questions, and constructive criticisms are welcome.
  • The Dark Reading article about the White House network compromise that Paul quoted from is here.
