Information Security is a fast changing field. The techniques of the attackers are constantly changing so it is necessary study attack methods and to adapt when necessary.
Security Operations and Security Event Analysis effectiveness can be greatly improved through visualizing security event data. While some people take great pleasure in looking at long lists of statistics from firewalls, intrusion detection systems and other security related logs most find it not only boring but also ineffective.
Visualizing the data can help an analyst spot patterns and trends that may otherwise be missed. It also makes your reports look pretty.
