What we're about

Dallas Cloud Security is a group for anyone interested in cybersecurity. This includes cloud security professionals, InfoSec practitioners, Hackers, DevSecOps, IT Compliance, IT Audit professionals. Our group is open to both experts and beginners alike. This group is a community effort to arm ourselves with knowledge through sharing security basics to advanced practices that ultimately mitigate threats and protect enterprise data.

Cyber attacks happen every minute somewhere. Companies are losing sensitive data to criminals and incurring hefty fines in the process, shaming their brand and losing customers. Our common goal is to mitigate such an attacks using the most effective technology and methods.

Please join our group to network with other cloud security professionals willing to share their knowledge to help protect our critical data and infrastructure. As a security professional, it’s time to take a fresh look at what you can do to compensate for insider negligence.

More importantly, let's have fun doing it in a relaxed environment. Enjoy a cold drink, have a bite to eat and let's learn about this crazy world of cybercrime.

Visualizing the Void of Security Audit Data

Location visible to members

In this talk, Jake will discuss detection of three well-defined security problems – adversarial user behavior, lateral movement, and insider threat detection – using a relatively untapped data set: shell and session commands. He’ll discuss machine learning techniques needed to analyze this data, present key findings of our research, and describe the effects and mitigations of bias to achieve higher accuracy. Additionally, Jake will explore techniques for safeguarding ML models based on this data. Jake will also outline a number of the tools used to develop these findings, including methods for analyzing and visualizing massive datasets over billions of Linux audit events. He’ll cover advances in machine learning (ML) that you can leverage to gain meaning out of the data you throw into the lake. Presenter's Bio Jake King, CEO & Co-Founder of Cmd, is a long-time security practitioner specializing in infrastructure security, primarily in cloud environments. Prior to starting Cmd, Jake managed the security program at social media giant Hootsuite where he experienced first-hand the risks pertaining to Linux systems at scale. Cmd was born out of these, and many other frustrations, quickly becoming one of the hottest startups in the cybersecurity space. Jake is a frequent speaker on the topic of Linux Security at BSides, MITRE, and other conferences, as well as an active member of the Vancouver cybersecurity community. An Australian native, Jake studied cyber forensics and information security management before relocating to Vancouver, Canada in 2013.
