Over the past decade, the visualization for cybersecurity (VizSec) research community has adapted many information visualization techniques to support the critical work of cyber analysts. While these efforts have yielded many specialized tools and platforms, the community lacks a unified approach to the design and implementation of these systems. In this work, we provide a retrospective analysis of the past decade of VizSec publications, with an eye toward developing a more cohesive understanding of the emerging patterns of design:
• We identify common thematic groupings among existing work, as well as interesting patterns of design around the utilization of various visual encodings.
• We also discuss existing gaps in the adaptation of visualization techniques for cybersecurity applications, and recommend avenues for future exploration.
