Abstract/Description:
While it is evident that network services continue to play an ever-increasing role in our daily lives, it is less evident that our information infrastructure requires a concerted, well-conceived, and fastidiously executed strategy to remain viable. Government agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations (\NGOs"), and private organizations are all targets for malicious online activity. Security has deservedly become a serious focus for organizations that seek to assume a more proactive posture; in order to deal with the many facets of securing their infrastructure. At the same time, the discipline of data science has rapidly grown into a prominent role, as once purely theoretical machine learning algorithms have become practical for implementation. This is especially noteworthy, as principles that now fall neatly into the field of data science has been contemplated for quite some time, and as much as over two hundred years ago. Visionaries like Thomas Bayes [18], Andrey Andreyevich Markov [65], Frank Rosenblatt [88], and so many others made incredible contributions to the field long before the impact of Moore's law [92] would make such theoretical work commonplace for practical use; giving rise to what has come to be known as "Data Science".
