SECONDO Researchers Working on Twitter Crawler

Researchers Aristidis Farao and Evangelos Kotsifakos are working on Task 3.3, the intelligent Big Data Collection and Processing Module (BDCPM) that acquires risk-related data either from internal organizational sources, e.g. network infrastructure, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), log files, usersโ€™ interaction, etc., or external sources, e.g. social media (with focus on Twitter) and other internet-based sources, including Darknet, using specialized crawlers.

The collected and processed data from BDCPM will be specified and quantified within a metamodel. This task will bundle a set of algorithms that will be used to perform sophisticated analysis on top of aggregated data whenever required during the project course. These algorithms have been classified into three categories: regression analysis, predictive and prescriptive analysis, and lastly data mining and machine learning.
