Abstract:

User-centered design can aid visualization designers to build better, more practical tools that meet the needs of cybersecurity users. The cyber security visualization research community can adopt a variety of design methods to more efficiently andeffectively build tools. We demonstrate how previous cyber visualization research has omitted a discussion of effectiveness andprocess in the explanation of design methods. In this paper, we discuss three design methods and illustrate how each methodinformed two real-world cyber security visualization projects which resulted in successful deployments to users.
