Background: Kirk (2016) defines data visualization as “The representation and presentation of data to facilitate understanding.” In this course, we will be learning about the individual pieces of Kirk’s definition.
Reference: Kirk, Andy. Data Visualisation: A Handbook for Data Driven Design (p. 50). SAGE Publications.
Assignment: Discuss and expand on the 4 components of Kirk’s definition with regards to visualizations:
Your research paper should be at least 3 pages (and at least 800 words), double-spaced, have at least 4 APA references, and typed in an easy-to-read font in MS Word (other word processors are fine to use but save it in MS Word format). Your cover page should contain the following: Title, Student’s name, University’s name, Course name, Course number, Professor’s name, and Date.
In Chapter 1, the author provides us a definition of data visualization: “The representation and presentation of data to facilitate understanding” (Kirk, 2016). The following three stages are required to understand data visualization:
- Perceiving: what can I see?
- Interpreting: what does it mean?
- Comprehending: what does it mean to me?Chapter 7 discusses situational awareness. Much of the security efforts of the past have been centered around prevention and protection. The increasing sophistication of cyber attacks have shown that no controls are 100% effective, and some compromises do occur. There is a rising realization that in addition to considering prevention and protection, controls that address detection and response are necessary to improve security posture. Please describe how situational awareness is a driver for detection and response controls.
To complete this assignment, you must do the following:
A) Create a new thread. As indicated above, describe how situational awareness is a driver for detection and response controls.
