Decoding the Data Ocean: Security Threats & Natural Language Processing

Join security researchers Erick Galinkin of Rapid7 and Izzy Lazerson of IntSights, a Rapid7 company, as they discuss how non-experts can supercharge threat intelligence efforts with natural language processing.

WATCH ON-DEMAND: There’s a sea of unstructured data on the internet relating to the latest security threats:  Threat intelligence reports, tweets, vendor advisories, news sources and many, many other sources. Imagine if you could parse this constant deluge of new information in real time, to discover and add new context to specific cybersecurity threats that impact your business?

That’s possible with natural language processing, or NLP.

Unlike rules-based systems, which work well for specific tasks on structured data within your perimeter, NLP can process and analyze large amounts of data at once — which is a feature that’s already proved its mettle in a variety of settings from translation to chatbots. NLP can also can be of enormous value for cybersecurity applications, and recent advancements have made it accessible to use for those who aren’t professional data analysts.

In this on-demand Threatpost Town Hall, sponsored by Rapid 7, attendees will learn key concepts of NLP and how to use it to effectively navigate the data ocean and add context to cybersecurity threats.

Join security researchers Erick Galinkin of Rapid7, Izzy Lazerson of IntSights, a Rapid7 company, and Threatpost journalist and webinar host Becky Bracken, as they discuss:

  • How NLP works — without (too much) math!
  • What makes NLP in cybersecurity unique
  • Modern, real-world cybersecurity use cases
  • The changes to the ecosystem that make NLP usable to non-experts
  • How Rapid7 is using NLP for threat intelligence and threat detection
  • Opportunities for improvement as the technology advances

Watch today to get the lowdown on this emerging technology from our security-threat experts, and learn how to supercharge your threat intelligence efforts in ways that were never before possible!
