Cyber Security Research

The paper presents the design and implementation of the Cybersecurity Social Network Analyser ( CSNA) platform. The CSNA is a software system for real time automated analysis of cybersecurity-related information available on Social Networks, with a focus on Twitter. Its aim is to uncover cybersecurity breach related discussions and posts, identify emerging cybersecurity incidents and provide, in a timely fashion, early warning alerts. The CSNA platform presents the results from the analysis of the gathered information in a variety of graphical formats for easy visualisation of potential threats within user-specified time windows of interest. We complement our description with a demonstration of the real time information provided by the platform during its operation on the Twitter social network.
