Source: Addison Wesley Professional
Security is a complex topic that defies easy description. In fact, most information security professionals have no real idea how to "show security," either literally or figuratively. Yet even the most compelling data is worthless without an effective way of presenting it. In this sample chapter from Security Metrics: Replacing Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, study a myriad of visualization techniques, ranging from simple table to two-by-two grids and intrictate "small multiple" charts. These techniques will help you present your hard-won data in a clean and elegant manner that will get your point across and win your manager's support for the security measures you recommend.
