This infographic offers an overview of common cyber attacks with information on targets and types. The opening sections have some great visual communication through the use of icons and data visualizations. The in-depth look at cyber attacks takes a more illustrative approach, which captures the essence of the attack, but also requires the reader to spend a lot of time in the content to understand the situation. On that note, the content is clearly distinguished through emphasized headers — a great way to help guide a reader through the infographic. However, the bulky content buries some key points that a reader could find useful. Overall, there are some great structures in place to develop a clear visual narrative, and with a bit more balance, this infographic could have even more impact. We'd give this an F.
