I’ve written before about the difference between cybersecurity and data science. And it’s not a trivial difference. A lot of business has relied upon data science for their security needs. However, many times cybersecurity is a lot more difficult and has to do with creating a network of systems that can defend against attack. Data science is about using data and analyzing it to create more actionable insights for business.
You could argue that cybersecurity is about creating a secure network, and data science is about creating actionable insights. Which makes sense. But what I find interesting is the difference between the two. Data science is about finding patterns in data, and using those patterns to increase actionability. Its a lot harder than it sounds. Sure, there are data science tools out there that can help you with that, but its the kind of thing that requires a special skill.
There are still a lot of experts who are not skilled enough to do data science. I’ve written about how cybersecurity can help you spot patterns in data and can help you detect and understand what might be a security breach. But I’m a believer in empowering people to become more data scientists.
Just because you’re not a data scientist doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be. That’s a good thing because data is the key to security. But what does it mean to have a person who can do the same thing as you when you’re not even a data scientist? I have seen people who have gone completely wild with their data to create a better security policy (or worse yet, to improve the security of your business) or a better security system.
But it isnt just about the data. The problem with security is that people do not always have the knowledge necessary to know what is best for their business. Data is the secret sauce. The best is that it isnt just about the data. The best security is that it is based on a solid understanding of what the data actually means to you or your company. If security is a data science problem, you can be the master of it.
The reason cyber security is such a huge problem is because it is not really that much easier to hack into a system than it is to hack into a system you own. Companies and governments spend millions and millions of dollars on security systems, but they are far from foolproof and can be hacked from multiple perspectives. If a hacker can access your system from a remote location, he can do a lot more damage than if he could just walk in and shoot you.
Data science is the opposite of cyber security. The biggest difference is that data science is not about hacking and hacking is rarely necessary. Data science is about finding patterns and discovering correlations. That is, finding connections between two or more different things, and by correlating these relationships one can learn how to predict them. Data science is not hacking, but just like hacks, it can be a skill that can be learned or can be learned to do a job well.
The difference between “data science” and “cyber security” is that data science is actually a very good skill. In fact, it can almost be called “data mining”, but for some reason that sounds very nerdy. In fact, it is basically a way of collecting massive amounts of data. After that data has been analyzed, it is then put into a database and analyzed. This allows for the creation of models and predictions that indicate what will happen in the future.
The use of data in the production of systems is a really useful skill. For example, you might want to create models that predict the likelihood of a crash of a particular car. Or you might want to predict how likely it is that people will wear certain clothing styles on certain dates, or the like. However, it is actually a real skill and not a nerdy science word that is used when people talk about computer security.
Most security professionals focus on the practical aspects of their craft, rather than the theory. However, the concept of “data security” is actually fairly broad. A data security professional wants to be able to use data to create models that can predict what will happen in the future. This is a skill that can be tested in the real world. The people who are really good at this kind of thing are called “cyber security professionals.
