Call For Papers

The IEEE International Workshop on Big Data Analytics for Cyber Threat Hunting (CyberHunt 2020) is organized by the Digital Security Research Group of the University of Oslo (Norway) in conjunction with the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2020). The workshop will be held during Dec 10-13, 2020, in Atlanta, GA, USA.

As cyber-crimes against critical infrastructure and large organizations increase and evolve, automated systems to supplement human analysis are required. In addition, hunting for breaches is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Such organizations are so large, with so much information and data to sort for actionable intelligence, that just knowing where to begin seems impossible. Intelligence analysis of an attack is traditionally an iterative mainly manual process going through unlimited amounts of data trying to determine sophisticated patterns and behaviors of intruders. Furthermore, most detected intrusions will provide a limited set of attributes about a single phase of an attack. Knowing all the stages of an intrusion accurately and in a timely manner would allow us to aid our cyber detective and preventive capabilities, as well as enrich our cyber threat intelligence and facilitate immediate threat information sharing, since we put several pieces together. The workshop is expected to address the aforementioned issues and will aim at presenting novel research in the area of cyber-threat hunting, cyber-threat intelligence, Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response. The research can have a special focus on AI and Big Data.

#Research Topics#
Any novel research related to cyber threat intelligence, incident and threat response, threat hunting, and security automation and orchestration is welcome.

Some suggested topics are:

Cyber Threat Intelligence (strategic, operational, tactical, technical)
Models for forecasting cyber-attacks and measuring impact
Threat actor groups & techniques
Semantic modeling, data representation, and fusion for CTI
Models that take into consideration Deception and Uncertainty in cyber-attack attribution
Indicators of compromise and how to detect/mitigate
Visualization techniques for intelligence analysis and investigation
Legal, privacy and ethical factors in intelligence analysis
Data analytics for security
Threat Hunting
Intrusion and anomaly detection and prevention
Incident Response
Monetization of cybercrime
Open Source tools
Relevant geopolitical cybersecurity research
Security Automation
Security Orchestration
