Workshop on Machine Learning for CyberSecurity @ ECMLPKDD 2019

Date: 10/05/2019

Pedro Ferreira and Ibéria Medeiros are members of the organizing
committee of the first Workshop on Machine Learning for CyberSecurity
(MLCS 2019).

The Workshop will take place on September 20 2019, in Wurzburg, Germany,
and is co-located with the European Conference on Machine Learning and
Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (ECMLPKDD 2019).

The last decade has been a critical one regarding cybersecurity, with
studies estimating the cost of cybercrime to be up to 0.8 percent of the
global GDP. The capability to detect, analyse, and defend against
threats in (near) real-time conditions is not possible without employing
machine learning techniques and big data infrastructures. This gives
rise to cyberthreat intelligence and analytic solutions, such as
(informed) machine learning on big data and open-source intelligence, to
perceive, reason, learn, and act against cyber adversary techniques and
actions. Moreover, organisations’ security analysts have to manage and
protect systems and deal with the privacy and security of all personal
and institutional data under their control. The aim of this workshop is
to provide researchers with a forum to exchange and discuss scientific
contributions, open challenges and recent achievements in machine
learning and their role in the development of secure systems.
