Visualization in Malware and Forensics

Abstract: Visualization is a field that has broad applicability to many areas of security. It is very well received among customers and management, but is very easy to get wrong. This talk will discuss some of the inherent problems visualizing large security data sets. There will be examples of improving the reverse engineering and forensics processes, as well as some examples of negative sides of visualization.
