Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“Analogies are one of the most powerful methods of putting across concepts and ideas in ways that make sense to people. The info sec community has struggled with finding a single, cohesive source of education and awareness aids that can be universally and effectively used to help people understand how information security affects all of our lives to one extent or another. Our industry desperately needs this single, go to source, of material that will helps us educate people in a way that avoids the traditional, classroom based teaching approach. The Analogies Project has very quickly become the obvious place to make this happen.”
