Microsoft Federal Forum 2014: Rethinking Cyber Defense…lessons learned
Dave Aucsmith

What lessons can be learned from cyberspace as a domain of war and the implications of chaos, complexity and non-linear science? Assuming that computer systems cannot be made completely secure, how does one implement a dynamic defense dependent on the adversary's intentions? The talk will try to answer these questions by considering science, military theory, and case studies.

In this session we will demonstrate how "Big Data" analytics techniques can be used for forensic analysis of network data to identify threats that may not be apparent to real-time event-processing systems.
