Re: Data science
I recently started working through the tutorials and missions on https://dataquest.io/.  It teaches you how to use Python to solve data science problems or questions.  As much as I like Python, programming isn't part of my day job but we deal with a LOT of log/alert data.  This site combines the two and gives me a better incentive to learn more. The site interface works well and it's free.  Definitely worth a look.  I'm enjoying working through each of the problems and seeing how I can apply them to my day job.

Cyber Hunting Data Science


Thanks for posting the Cyber Hunting Tips !  I am trying to get my company to focus on Cyber Hunting and your information and insight are very helpful.  I have also noticed some Network Application Performance Monitoring and Analysis software vendors are partnering with APT Detection software vendors which might help with analyzing network application traffic big data for IOCs.  Extrahop partnering with FireEye is an example.

In the past, I was a network architect and used Extrahop. I found it very helpful in baselining  network application transactions and identifying the cause of performance issues. I believe it could be equally helpful in tracking and identifying security related issue s.

Re: Data science
Cybersecurity without data science is probably a losing combo...

Re: Data science
Thanks, Marilyn, glad you enjoyed the post. Every person is different, so there's probably no one "correct" path into Data Science.  Personally, I got started just by doing a lot of reading.  Data Driven Security is a great book for beginners (with a cool blog and podcast to go with it).  Since I do my best learning by getting my hands dirty, I have been checking out a lot of data science challenges on Kaggle and experimenting with platforms like Microsoft's Azure ML Studio.  I also do some Python and R coding, depending on my exact needs.  

I think the secret is to just get started a little at a time.  I recommend that more security people become data science literate, but not necessarily become data scientists.  That makes things a lot easier, because we can focus ourselves more on the area(s) that most directly address our infosec needs.  Even so, there's still a lot to learn!

Data science
Nice blog, @David. Wondering how you suggest security pros go to "get their data science on." Are their certifications, courses or hands-on expereince strategies you can suggest?
