Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“My interest in the Analogies project stems from a love of human interaction and behaviour. I think the security industry as a whole has, for too long, considered itself to be unique, we thought of everything we are doing as different or requiring a ‘re-invention of the wheel’. Should we be so naïve as to think that what we are doing, within security, is so different from what other professions, people and civilisations have done in the past? The Analogies Project gives us a chance to learn lessons from areas outside of security, to explore new ideas and even better, new ways to communicate these ideas. I am excited to be a part of it and am looking forward to where it may lead in the future.”
