Later this month thousands of security professionals will gather in San Francisco for the annual RSA Security Conference. The conference’s theme this year centers around how Big Data will inform changes to Internet security over the coming years. Always ahead of the curve, our own Umbrella Security Labs is already leveraging the power of Big Data to transform Internet security from reactive to proactive. In fact, yesterday morning we released the Umbrella Security Graph, a new tool that will enable researchers to quickly make powerful connections between malicious Internet activities.
Big Data has massive potential to improve the way security vendors deliver malware protection and botnet containment today, but only if harnessed and analyzed effectively. On Wednesday, February 20 at 10 a.m. PST OpenDNS CTO Dan Hubbard will present the webcast, Harnessing the power of Big Data to predict unknown malware, botnet and phishing threats. It’ll be an insightful 40-minute presentation on how security research teams are leveraging graph theory, algorithms and visualization to predict and block unknown threats.
