Social Media Analytics for Intelligence and Security Informatics
Christopher Yang – Drexel University
In this talk, we’ll discuss some of the social media and data analytics work we have done on the DIBBs data archive. The DIBBS data archive is a 3-year project funded by NSF to collect a set of security-related data and develop a set of analytic tools to support the intelligence and security research community. The data contains (1) Web forums organized and run by extremists, and other groups and organizations, (2) phishing websites including concocted escrow files, spoof financial files (with legitimate financial files available for classification tasks), and concocted and legitimate pharmacy websites, and (3) security-related tweets. The analytic tools will include social network analysis, text analysis, and data visualization.
