O’Reilly – Monitoring and Improving the Performance of Machine Learning Models
English | Size: 863.79 MB
Category: CBTs

It’s critical to have “humans in the loop” when automating the deployment of machine learning (ML) models. Why? Because models often perform worse over time.

This course covers the human directed safeguards that prevent poorly performing models from deploying into production and the techniques for evaluating models over time. We’ll use ModelDB to capture the appropriate metrics that help you identify poorly performing models. We’ll review the many factors that affect model performance (i.e., changing users and user preferences, stale data, etc.) and the variables that lose predictive power. We’ll explain how to utilize classification and prediction scoring methods such as precision recall, ROC, and jaccard similarity. [Read more…]

We continue to underestimate the tenacity of our adversaries! Organizations are investing a significant amount of time and financial and human resources trying to combat cyber threats and prevent cyber attacks, but despite this tremendous effort organizations are still getting compromised. The traditional perimeter-focused, prevention-dominant approach to security architecture has failed to prevent intrusions. No network is impenetrable, a reality that business executives and security professionals alike have to accept. Prevention is crucial, and we can’t lose sight of it as the primary goal. However, a new proactive approach to security is needed to enhance the capabilities of organizations to detect threats that will inevitably slip through their defenses. SEC511: Continuous Monitoring and Security Operations will teach you how to strengthen your skills to undertake that proactive approach.

One of the most significant obstacles facing many auditors today is how exactly to go about auditing the security of an enterprise. What systems really matter? How should the firewall and routers be configured? What settings should be checked on the various systems under scrutiny? Is there a set of processes that can be put into place to allow an auditor to focus on the business processes rather than the security settings? How do we turn this into a continuous monitoring process? All of these questions and more will be answered by the material covered in this course. [Read more…]
