Detecting malware with machine learning, from c&c to exfiltration

In this example-driven session, we will cover novel malware detection methods, as used by Cisco Cognitive Threat Analytics (CTA) engine. Participants will learn about:
Modern malware, its modus operandi and revenue streams
Evasion of traditional security defenses (firewall, antivirus)
How network anomaly detection and machine learning can uncover its presence
Methods used to reduce false positives (FP) and false negatives (FN)
Cohesive and actionable incident assembly

Prior knowledge of current security trends is recommended. No prior knowledge about machine learning is required.
