DSC Webinar Series: Data Science Driven Approaches to Malware Detection

  • Sean Welch 

Malware detection within enterprise networks is a critical component of an effective information security strategy. A “watering hole” attack is one example of how legitimate websites can be stealthily injected with malware. The malware lies undetected, while redirecting traffic from a legitimate site to a malicious site, which hosts an exploit kit that can compromise users’ machines. Instances of watering hole attacks are increasing rapidly — making them especially important to detect.

In this DSC webinar, one of Pivotal’s principal data scientists will discuss data science driven approaches to finding domains that have time and user-based co-occurrence relationships. Developed to find low-support and high-confidence malicious domain associations, these methods aid in the detection of coordinated network intrusions, like watering hole attacks. The session will also demonstrate a scalable and operationalizable framework to detect domain associations by analyzing the web traffic of users in any organization.
