In this bi-weekly podcast, Bob & Jay delve into the dark art of security data science and talk with security practitioners who are pioneering the data-driven security movement. They cover everything from introductory analysis & visualization to cutting edge topics in security data science.
Data Driven Security - Episode 30
In this episode, Jay and Bob talk about the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR). But rather than talk about the insights and data analysis they focus in on the data visualizations. They are joined by Lane Harrison from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and Ana Antanasoff and Gabrial Bassett from Verizon's Security Research Team.

Data Driven Security - Episode 29
In this episode, Jay and Bob talk about power laws and their application in cyber security. First, they talk with Marshall Kuypers, a PhD candidate in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University and discuss power laws in general. Second, they sit down with Michael Roytman, Data Scientist and Kenna Security to talk about power laws in cyber security.

Data Driven Security - Episode 27
In this post-RSA conference episode, Jay participated with StoryCorps along with Wade Baker and the two reflected on their time working together on the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report.
Data Driven Security - Episode 26
In this episode, Bob sits down with co-workers on the data science team at Rapid 7. They explore the future of security data science, Heisenberg and Project Sonar.
Keep on top of Heisenberg developments at http://community.rapid7.com/. Find out more about Project Sonar at http://sonar.labs.rapid7.com/ and http://scans.io/. Get tools to work with both at http://github.com/rapid7.
Data Driven Security - Episode 25
In this episode, Bob & Jay talk amongst themselves. First they cover some recent work from Jay looking at Peer-to-Peer traffic and then they transition into conferences in 2016 with some element of being Data-Driven.
