Upcoming: The Cybersecurity Visuals Challenge

Coming soon. Sign up to stay tuned for updates!


How might we reimagine a more compelling and relatable visual language for cybersecurity?

Too often, visuals in the cybersecurity space reflect surface level understanding influenced by sensationalist media. We see pictures of locks, white men in hoodies, or green 1s and 0s that do little to convey the reality of this complicated, critically important topic. With this Challenge, we hope to elevate imagery that better represents the cybersecurity space in an accessible and compelling manner.

We look forward to sharing more with you when the Challenge launches.

We are excited to share with you the design research that informed the creation of this Challenge. You'll receive a downloadable copy of the full report when you sign up to receive updates about the Challenge.
"Cybersecurity is a human problem, not a technical one, many technologists don’t understand how people learn or interact with computers and that-ignoring the human factor-is the original sin that got us into many problems on the internet.”
