In the field of cybersecurity and information security a large portion of the work we do includes large and complex amounts of data. Analyzing these data provides an opportunity to extract new information and knowledge which can help improve our ability to provide protection of information and critical assets.
Data analytics for cybersecurity is not a field of its own, but cybersecurity provides a perfect domain for applying existing and new data analytics techniques. Building on experience from previous research initiatives, we explore the use of advanced statistics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and concepts from popular “Big Data” processing approaches to the challenges we find in the research initiatives in NORCICS.
The focus area of data analytics will cover research challenges within health data processing, 5G, critical infrastructure, IoT and reverse engineering.
