Ana Respício and Fernando Alves presented the DiSIEM project and the components for risk management and OSINT threat detection in the BSides Lisbon 2018 conference, that happened on 29 and 30 of November 2018. The video for the presentation is available on youtube.
The 7th DiSIEM project meeting gathered 20 participants of the consortium at City University of London, in London, UK, between 19 and 21 of November 2018. The technical meeting focused mostly on the validation of the components devised in the project, and on the ongoing research and collaborations in DiSIEM.
The DiSIEM project will be participating in the ICT 2018 Exhibition in Viena, Austria, on Dec. 4-6. We will be showcasing the SIEM enhancements produced in the project in stand C30. If you attend the event, please drop by to see what we have been building in the project and talk about possible collaborations.
We just published a short article on the Open Access Government describing the limitations of current cybersecurity monitoring systems and how the innovations developed in DiSIEM can improve the state of the art. This journal reaches a wide audience in the industry and government, and we hope the article helps to create more awareness about the project.
DiSIEM researchers Fernando Alves and Rui Azevedo participated in the 4th MISP Threat Intelligence Summit in Luxembourg, on October 15th. They gave the talks "IoC generation from tweet texts" and "Enrichment and Quality IoC Creation from OSINT", which described how some innovations from DiSIEM could be integrated on the MISP Threat Intelligence platform. Rui's presentation is available [...]
