Communication - The Forgotten Security Tool

Security professionals have many tools in their toolbox. Some are physical in nature. (WireShark, Mimikatz, endpoint detection and response systems and SIEMs come to mind.) Others not so much.

They are then displayed in up to three dimensions for a quick overview to show the relations.
