May 06 2015I am really tired of things Google has done lately. The most recent example being retiring Classic Maps. That’s a problem, because the current Maps mysteriously doesn’t show most of my saved (“starred”) places. Google has known about this since at least 2013. There are posts all over their forums… read more
May 06 2015I just got off a call with a client and they asked me what they should put on their security dashboards. It’s a nice continuation of the discussion of the SOC Overhead Dashboard. Here are some thoughts. The list stems from a slide that I use during the Visual Analytics… read more
May 06 2015As announced in the previous blog post, I have been writing a paper about the security big data lake. A topic that starts coming up with more and more organizations lately. Unfortunately, there is a lot uncertainty around the term so I decided to put some structure to the discussion.… read more
May 06 2015Information security has been dealing with terabytes of data for over a decade; almost two. Companies of all sizes are realizing the benefit of having more data available to not only conduct forensic investigations, but also pro-actively find anomalies and stop adversaries before they cause any harm. UPDATE: Download the… read more
May 06 2015I am sure you have seen those huge screens in a security or network operations center (SOC or NOC). They are usually quite impressive and sometimes even quite beautiful. I have made a habit of looking a little closer at those screens and asking the analysts sitting in front of… read more
May 06 2015A new version of AfterGlow is ready. Version 1.6.5 has a couple of improvements: 1. If you have an input file which only has two columns, AfterGlow now automatically switches to a two-node mode. You don’t have to use the (-t) switch explicitly anymore in this case! (I know, it’s… read more
May 06 2015If you have been interested and been following event interchange formats or logging standards, you know of CEF and CEE. Problem is that we lost funding for CEE, which doesn’t mean that CEE is dead! In fact, I updated the field dictionary to accommodate some more use-cases and data sources.… read more
May 06 2015As I outlined in my previous blog post on How to clean up network traffic logs, I have been working with the VAST 2013 traffic logs. Today I am going to show you can load the traffic logs into Impala (with a parquet table) for very quick querying. First off,… read more
May 06 2015I have spent some significant time with the VAST 2013 Challenge. I have been part of the program committee for a couple of years now and have seen many challenge submissions. Both good and bad. What I noticed with most submissions is that they a) didn’t really understand network data,… read more
May 06 2015I was greatly honored when I got an invitation from the Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) to give a talk about data mining and cyber security. Knowing me, you might be able to guess the topic I chose to present: Visual Analytics. I am focussing on not… read more
May 06 2015Those of you who know me most likely know that I am quite the VIM fan. At any time, there is at least one VIM window open on my computer. I just like the speed of editing and the flexibility it offers. I even use VI bindings in my UNIX… read more
May 06 2015People from across the data world are coming together this week for Strata + Hadoop World 2015 in London. Below we’ve assembled notable keynotes, interviews, and insights from the event. Shazam already knows the next big hit “With relative accuracy, … read more
Webcast: Scaling with MongoDB
Webcast: How Sharding Works
"Overall, this is a comprehensive guide to MongoDB. It is perhaps a little too advanced for complete beginners--despite the claims on the back cover--but otherwise does a good job of covering most of the topics which you are likely to need."
"I would recommend this book as a companion book to the definitive guide to MongoDB by the same author because together, they build a solid foundation for MongoDB."
