Call For Papers

**DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 27th**

The IEEE International Workshop on Big Data Analytics for Cyber Threat Hunting (CyberHunt 2018) is organised by the SecurityLab of University of Oslo (Norway) and West Virginia University (USA) in conjunction with the 2018 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE Big Data 2018). The workshop will be held during Dec 10-13, 2018 in Seattle, Washington, USA.

#Workshop Description#
As cyber-crimes against critical infrastructure and large organisations 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 organisations 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 behaviours 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 and big data analytics.
