Corey Thuen

Gravwell Founder

Corey Thuen is a founder of Gravwell and has spent over a decade in ICS (OT), IT, and IoT security. That experience is now driving development of a full-stack analytics platform built to solve modern analytics problems of the IoT age.

Prior to founding Gravwell, Corey conducted security assessments on anything from power equipment to vehicle computers to over-engineered juicers while working for companies such as IOActive, Digital Bond, and Southfork Security. Before that Corey did cybersecurity work for the US Department of Energy at Idaho National Laboratory and the FBI.

Corey lives in the middle of nowhere Idaho and has a stark personal dichotomy of high and low tech. When not building advanced analytics platforms for the modern age, Corey gets out into the mountains hiking, hunting, fishing, or flying his red-tailed hawk.

Using Force Directed Graphs To Analyze Huge Event Datasets

Stage 2

Using techniques learned from disease studies and algorithms developed to understand viral propagation, it’s possible to use system logs to track an infection being transmitted through “non-standard” methods. This session walks through the problem, explains the math behind the analysis and where it’s been successful elsewhere, and then applies the technique to USB thumb drive […]
