I am a CISSP who is part of a team that is conducting an experiment funded by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory, to objectively evaluate the effectiveness of visualizations to enhance performance of cyber defenders. We are recruiting participants with 3 years of cyber workforce experience or students who compete in cyber competitions (must be at least 18 years old).
Participants will be asked to use visualizations of data associated with potential cyber incidents and answer a series of questions. You will be asked to provide your feedback on the visualizations presented.
The experiment and training is being conducted online. Your total time commitment is expected to be approximately 90 minutes. We can provide documentation to substantiate submission for CPE credit.
All information about the experiment participants will remain confidential. The data collected during the experiment, along with your feedback will be aggregated to assess and evaluate the impact of the visualizations on the process.
If interested in participating, or for more information, visit us at
