July 2016 Meeting

July 14, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

“A Sober Look at Machine Learning”

Guest Speaker: Sven Krasser; Chief Scientist, Crowdstrike

Dr. Sven Krasser currently serves as Chief Scientist at CrowdStrike where he leads the machine learning efforts utilizing CrowdStrike’s Big Data platform. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed publications and is co-inventor on more than two dozen patented network and host security technologies.


Machine learning is presently a hot topic in the security industry. On the one side, we have companies praising machine learning as the panacea solving all of our security needs. On the other side, there are companies seeing no merit in machine learning urging us to stay with so-called proven approaches.

As always, the truth is a bit more complicated. In this talk, we will take a sober and scientific look at machine learning beyond the hype. First, we will cover what objectives machine learning addresses and how those are accomplished. Next, we will review how machine learning techniques apply to the security space, which problems they solve (and which ones they don’t), and what challenges and opportunities they present. Lastly, with these preliminaries addressed, we will dive into what customers need to look for when evaluating machine learning based security products.
