Why InfoSec Professionals Need to Learn Some Data Science

This is a post I've been meaning to write for a while, and over the last few months I've been finding it quite a bit more relevant. It finally came to a head a few weeks ago when I was talking with some respected colleagues about Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and how they are being leveraged in the Infosec world. The conversation started off well when we were talking about it from a high level, but it soon became clear that neither one of my friends, who both have worked in IT and Infosec for a long time, knew the first thing about "how" those systems actually worked. It was at that point the gears in my head ground to a halt, and as I reflected upon that moment, my mind took me back to a simpler time.
