Fraud & Anomaly Detection Using ELK Stack, Kibana & Python Elast-Alert





Fraud & Anomalies in e-commerce domains is on the rise. Conventional monitoring and alerting frameworks usually are either not smart enough to detect such frauds & anomalies, configured incorrectly, or are too slow, and by the time we receive an alert for the same, the fraud or anomaly has already caused its damage.

During this talk we would be using the ELK Stack to process and accumulate alerts, use Kibana for Dashboards and Visuals, and use Python Elast-Alert to generate alerts in forms of Emails, JIRA Issue, HipChat, Slack, AWS SNS integeration.

Can we have some links to your slides or a general structure, some thing that can be used to be put on the projector so audience can follow along.

Please upload the slides/structure so they can be reviewed before 12th feb.

Have you given any talks(including this one) before? Any experience of public speaking? It's not a requirement for doing the talk but would definitely help us gauge the experience level. We suggest going through the presentation least once in front of a small audience to get some experience if you have not already.

Hi Akshay Will have the slides and links to the content up soon, just fine tuning it a bit to the time Also yes we have spoken at Pycon in Bangalore for lightning talks, and have ample speaking experience so that should not really be an issue.
