Best forum for the merger of security and big-data

Rated 5 out of 5
April 3, 2020

Okay, the focus is still on network flows, which — let’s face it — are of limited utility in the age of increasing TLS utilization. That said, the conference is filled with discussions around not only traditional flow monitoring, but leveraging the information in TLS handshakes, and expanding beyond flow data. At most security conferences, big-data is a side-event, but here it’s the common thread across all the presentations. Folks present research with a TB of data and someone will ask, “But how will you scale it up to run on a real data set?” These are my people. Of course, the real value in Cons is the networking, and Flocon has that in spades with a group that is large enough to provide some diversity, but still small enough to feel approachable.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Monday, July 22nd 2019, or created by us.

FloCon will provide a forum for exploring large-scale, next-generation data analytics in support of security operations. The event is geared toward operational analysts, researchers, tool developers, security professionals, and others interested in applying state of the art techniques to visualize and analyze large datasets for protection and defense of networked systems.

It focuses on applying analytics to any large-scale dataset to enhance security, not just network flow data. Everyone who is interested in data-driven security is invited to attend this event. The conference is particularly interested in new, innovative ways to use Big Data to address thorny security problems.

Network data analysis is still an important part of FloCon. You’ll now have the chance to network and share your work with a wider cross-section of data analysts and security professionals.
