What is this video course about, and why is it important?
Today, arguably the most important field in the IT industry is security. With more and more commerce and business being conducted online every day, keeping data safe and detecting and repelling attacks is paramount to every organization. One area that shows great potential in the battle against hackers and their exploits is machine learning. Unleashing the increasing power and finesse of these systems toward defeating intrusions and data theft is no longer a theoretical pursuit. Indeed, machine learning is being used to defend systems and networks across an increasing range of industries and enterprises, so it’s no mystery that there’s also an increasing demand for skilled and qualified security specialists who can apply data science techniques to the task of data security.
If you’re a security engineer, network analyst, or anyone else charged with protecting your organization's valuable IT system and data, this video will show you how to quickly and efficiently ingest a variety of data types typically used in security settings and prepare them for analysis in the Python data science ecosystem. Your host, cyber security specialist and data scientist Charles Givre, teaches the concepts behind vectorized computing as it applies specifically to security. Gathering and preparing data is one of the biggest challenges facing anyone who is seeking to do advanced analysis and machine learning. This video will help you learn how to use the Pandas ecosystem to quickly and effectively gather, prepare, and explore security data for advanced analysis and machine learning.
This video is one in a set of three, intended for security professionals who want to learn how to use and apply data science to their toughest security problems. It focuses on the tools and techniques that are directly applicable to the industry, and uses security problems and datasets to walk you through the entire data science process from end-to-end.
