Data Visualization

Visual Representation of Complex Concepts

Cyber security research often deals with intricate technical details and abstract concepts. Visual metaphors, diagrams, charts, and icons are employed to simplify and clarify these concepts. The goal is to strike a balance between accuracy and accessibility, ensuring that viewers can grasp the essence of the research without oversimplifying or omitting critical details.

Initial Communication with Experts

The design process begins with in-depth discussions with cyber security experts for understanding the research findings and determine the essential content for communication.

Review and Feedback

Throughout the design process, continuous feedback loops are essential. Experts review the drafts to verify accuracy and relevance to the research findings. Feedback helps in refining the content and visuals further, ensuring that the final infographic effectively communicates the intended message.

Helping online merchants stop suspicious orders

Ekbit is a fraud management system that enables online merchants to set a number of customized rules in order to determine whether an order should be automatically processed, set on pending list for manual review or automatically rejected.

The concept

The concept was based on the idea that the system acts as a powerful filter that let the good go through, but blocks the unwanted. This idea led itself to the analogy with scavengers: animals that feed on dead animals. This behaviour has a positive impact on the ecosystem - cleaning up the environment and reducing the risks of bacteria and disease contagion. Amongst the scavenger family can be found the condors. They distinguish themselves by their extremely good sense of smell and eyesight, which allows them to spot dead animals’ body from far away.

The Rules Package

The interface was designed to allow the user to set an infinite number of rules to control whether orders can be processed or not. A variety of factors such as the location of the customer and the shipping/billing address dissimilarity can be determined in the rules to target fraudulent intent.

The Dashboard

The dashboard summarizes the latest activities and recent transactions in multiple graphs and charts, which allows users to quickly view and understand the overall condition of the orders.
