Psychologist Jean Piaget is renown for his investigation into cognitive development and how we learn to deal with abstract concepts. In Information Security we often deal with abstract concepts like "find evil" or "detect malicious activity", however it is often difficult to break these down from the abstract concept into their specific elements. In this talk, I will discuss my perspective of common follies of abstraction in detection, triage, and investigation and how I approach breaking down problems into discrete components.
