This publication describes a security solution that incorporates security events in a single place and presents them in an easy-to-understand timeline. The intrinsic dynamic essence of the timeline enables the user to see what affects the overall security and offers guidance for the user to take steps to achieve a desired security state. The security solution shows the most-relevant security events at the highest level, but it also allows the user to see all of the security event details, if the user chooses to do so. The user can easily determine the time at which overall security became compromised and can report these changes to the security solution provider or a third-party service or product provider. The security solution displays, in the timeline, important milestone announcements (e.g., Year in Review) — information that can further help the user understand and take steps to increase security.
