Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“Having experienced first-hand how difficult it can be to translate to decision makers and stakeholders the relevance of Information Security, I see this project as an excellent way of getting these messages across in a way that can be understood by a wider audience.

Information Security affects everyone, both at work and in their personal lives, if more understood the changes that they could make and the impact that these changes can have, there would be less fraudulent activity and fewer incidents.”
