Online Security Seminar: Detecting Botnets and Terrorism Threats
Just a reminder that the online webinar: “Making Sense of Data: Detecting Botnets and Terrorism Threats Using High-Performance Computing” will be tomorrow at 2PM EST. Here is what to expect (from website):
Terrorists are using social media to communicate, plan and recruit members, but how do government agencies detect these communications in a sea of unstructured data?
Malware infiltrates government networks and hides among terabytes of data, but how do security analysts identify the anomalies amid months of collected data to spot patterns that indicate a threat?
LexisNexis® Data Analytics Supercomputer (DAS) is rising to the challenge of helping government agencies turn large quantities of data into answers. By finding patterns and links among massive data sets, DAS is helping to quickly analyze and present data in meaningful ways that lead to decisions and action.
In this one-hour webcast, attendees will hear from industry experts as they discuss:
- How terrorists use blogs to plan, communicate and recruit members, as well as how to analyze this data to find linkages and emerging threats;
- How botnets are infiltrating U.S. government networks, and steps to detect them to prevent cybersecurity threats; and
- Real-world examples of how the LexisNexis Data Analytics Supercomputer (DAS) has been applied to solve these growing threats.
