    The aim of this work is to explore the potential of visualization in order to visualize and manage risks and threats by performing security data analysis. We perform a an analysis of data visualization for identifying and understanding security threat and identify data set(s) to be used with a visualization library in order to visualize activities or threats, analyze data and gain deeper understanding and uncover hidden patterns. The basic structure of the data visualization will be fabricated and visual attributes assigned to the resulting elements. The study utilizes the D3 JavaScript library to visualize detected compromises, threats and attacks existing in a network environment. In particular, the library could visually represent the evidence of several security events such as port sweeps, port scans, malware/worm traffic and clear compromise of the system.
