Dana Martin recently started working with the Centurylink Threat Security team. She has 14 years of experience being a data analyst working for the NSA. When looking up an IP, URL or Hash the analysts currently have to gather data through many different third-party proprietary services. It would be much easier for the team to have one place to see all the corresponding data.
- The biggest challenge was gathering all of the back end APIs.
- Writing an API for the services that don't have public versions.
- Aggregating all of that information and displaying it in a palatable, modern, responsive manner.
Dana spent the past 14 years working for the NSA and previously worked on a high-security team. She has worked with all of the third-party services included in the dashboard so she is quite familiar with the data output. She is excited about joining the Threat Analysis team and using a more cohesive, streamlined piece of software.
The only concerns that exist in developing the software is making sure that all of the proprietary third-party services are organized properly on the responsive dashboard and that any analyst is not confused about what data they are looking at.
