Abstract

Over the past decade, the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) has risen to forefront of cybersecurity threats. APTs are a major contributor to the billions of dollars lost by corporations around the world annually. The threat is significant enough that the Navy Cyber Power 2020 plan identified them as a “must mitigate” threat in order to ensure the security of its warfighting network.
This presentation and its related research applies the science of Natural Language Processing Open Source Intelligence in order to build an open source Ontology in the APT domain.
