Our responsibilities are expanding to include larger infrastructures, more applications, and a multitude of security products. As a result, security investigators must navigate big, inter-connected data. Traditional data visualization techniques, like lists, charts, and tables, are great for summaries, but hide individual entities and relationships. Graph visualization, on the other hand, models these entities and relationships as nodes and edges. By exposing structural and temporal information, we can reveal suspicious patterns and anomalies.

In this talk, I will share how I used graph visualization to better understand and detect malicious attack patterns hidden within millions of security logs.
