WhyViz – Transforming Cyber data into Human-Centered Visualizations

Help us understand what works in cyber defense visualization!
We are Secure Decisions, a Division of Applied Visions, Inc., and we are conducting two experiments funded by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory to objectively evaluate the effectiveness of visualizations to enhance the performance of cyber defenders.
In each experiment, participants will use visualizations of data associated with potential cyber incidents to answer a series of questions and provide feedback on the visualizations. The expertise you have acquired through prior training and application are essential to understanding the visualizations, and your feedback is vital, however: We are measuring the value of the visualizations, not your skills.

Your skills can help move forward research in the use of visualizations for cyber defense. All we ask is your time, your expertise, and your opinion; there is no cost to participate.

Important information:  
- The experiments will be conducted online and may be scheduled at your convenience;  no travel is necessary.
- The total time commitment for an experiment (including training) is a single session of approximately 2 hours.
- All information about candidates and experiment participants will remain confidential. Data collected during the experiment, including your feedback, will be aggregated to assess and evaluate the impact of the visualizations on the process.
- The training session requires the use of GoToMeeting, an online meeting service provided via a browser plug-in. If you are unable to use GoToMeeting, you will not be able to participate in the experiment.
          - Details about the plug-in are available at https://www.gotomeeting.com.
             We recommend testing your system with GoToMeeting by visiting

This survey will allow us to identify candidates who want to participate in our experiments. We anticipate it will take 15 minutes to complete this survey. We thank you for taking the time to complete it. Click "Next" to continue.
