Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“The challenge, to be part of the Analogies Project is an opportunity to share my years of experience and to help people to understand clearly about technical concepts of Security and Privacy. 

My purpose is to come as close as I can to live up to Nelson Mandela’s quote –  “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”

I enjoy explaining, in a way that that anyone can understand, the concepts of Cyber Security, Privacy, Electronic Crimes, and all the technology related to Internet. I believe that this generates security awareness in the simplest possible way.”
