Big Data/Machine Learning in Risk Management and Audit

Mario Bojilov, Chief Data Strategist, Meta Business Systems

Thursday, 20 April 2017 at 8:45 am Friday, 21 April 2017 at 5:30 pm (AEST)


This course is designed to provide participants, with no prior exposure to Big Data (BD), with the knowledge and practical skills to start using Big Data in their organisations. Initially the course covers four (4) of the most popular tools for processing Big Data – Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, Apache Hive and MongoDB.  It then progresses to the topic of Machine Learning (ML) and provides practical exercises demonstrating how ML is used.

A distinguishing feature of the course is its practical aspect. At the end of each module there is a practical exercise designed to reinforce the concepts of the module and to give participants a chance to “get their hands dirty”.

At the start of the course, each participant will receive a USB with a fully configured Virtual Machine (VM) that will be used for the practical work throughout the course. Students will be allowed to keep the VMs after the course, so that they refer to the exercises in their day-to-day work and, when they feel more confident, to modify and enhance them to be used in their audit engagements.

Data is a source of business advantage, but also a source of business risk. As the amount of data transmission doubles in size every two years, so does the number of security breaches. The past year has seen data breaches make headlines in Asian news channels, prompting governments to take tougher data privacy regulations. This has also raised public awareness data privacy issues, making data privacy imperative to businesses in Asia.

DPA 2015 offers a platform for you to get the latest trends and pressing issues of data privacy, protection and cyber security in Asia. The event also gives like-minded professionals the opportunity to network and learn about the best practices of the companies represented at the conference. DPA spans more than 35 sessions and two training workshops over four days.

Workshops will be conducted by Terry McQuay, President and Founder, Nymity and Rebecca Herold, Chief Executive Officer, The Privacy Professor. These workshops are especially designed for data privacy professionals. The first 100 signups will enjoy complimentary passes to Nymity’s newest global workshop organized at Data Privacy Asia 2015.
