Visualization of security data has not advanced significantly since the days of the WOPR in War Games. Other tech industries have embraced the role of modern user interfaces to facilitate and expedite data search, analysis and discovery, which has significantly helped users in those industries gain insights from a big data environment. In contrast, the security industry prefers to relegate everyone into command line prompts and clunky interfaces with minimal functionality and an inability to scale to the volume, velocity, and variety of security data. I’ll address the core challenges and impact of the industry’s failure to take data visualization and user experience seriously, and provide recommendations on key areas that would most benefit from modern data visualization. Through the use of attack timelines, I’ll demonstrate how we, as an industry, must move beyond familiar visualization conventions (that tend to break at scale) and provide functional data visualization that is usable for analysts and operators across all levels of expertise.
