Why I Joined The Analogies Project
“I am an optimist by nature, but despite the industry’s best efforts, I’m afraid we need to do much better. Innovation, challenging the status-quo and drawing on expertise from experts with non-security backgrounds is critical if we are to move forward. I believe that the Analogies Project will help foster change and generate new ideas and I am thrilled to work alongside such a talented group of individuals”.
