About BSides Ottawa

BSides... is made out of people!

BSides Ottawa is a grassroots-driven conference that provides an open platform for security experts, industry professionals and everyone with an interest in cyber security to share their ideas, questions, insights and research, and to create trusted relationships with members of the National Capital Region cyber security community from the public and private sectors.

Security BSides is a global phenomenon. From SecurityBSides.com:

Each BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.

Presentation Schedule

  • Day 1

  • Machine learning has gained a lot of hype and has become a buzz word in the last couple of years, and purports to solve many of the challenges facing the cyber security community. However, there has been many hype cycles that have never delivered. This presentation will cover what recent advances has occurred in Machine Learning, what do these advances mean to the cyber security community, what changes need to be made to cyber risk assessments, how can one “hack” Machine Learning algorithms and what are the geopolitical events that could drive the direction and funding of Machine Learning in the foreseeable future.
