DC7111 - Accelerating Cyber Threat Detection with GPUs

Session Speakers
  • Josh Patterson - Director of Applied Solutions Engineering, NVIDIA

    Joshua Patterson is director of applied solutions engineering at NVIDIA and a former White House Presidential Innovation Fellow. Previously, Josh worked with leading experts across public sector, private sector, and academia to build a next-generation cyberdefense platform. His current passions are graph analytics, machine learning, and GPU data acceleration. Josh also loves storytelling with data and creating interactive data visualizations. Josh holds a Bachelor of Arts in economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Arts in economics from the University of South Carolina Moore School of Business.

Session Description

Analyzing vast amounts of enterprise cyber security data to find threats can be cumbersome. Cyber threat detection is also a continuous task, and because of financial pressure, companies have to find optimized solutions for this volume of data. We'll discuss the evolution of big data architectures used for cyber defense and how GPUs are allowing enterprises to efficiently improve threat detection. We'll discuss (1) briefly the evolution of traditional platforms to lambda architectures and ultimately GPU-accelerated solutions; (2) current GPU-accelerated database, analysis tools, and visualization technologies (such as MapD, BlazingDB,, Anaconda and Graphistry), and discuss the problems they solve; (3) the need to move beyond traditional rule based indicators of compromise and use a combination of machine learning, graph analytics, and deep learning to improve threat detection; and finally (4) our future plans to continue to advance GPU accelerated cyber security R&D as well as the GPU Open Analytics Initiative.
