Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“To learn something new, you must build on something you already know. You can learn Spanish much easier if you can already speak French for example. InfoSec is no different, as you’re dealing with concepts that likely have little to do with your day-to-day function, or the function of those you’re trying to influence.

Analogies are a critical tool for anyone who sees teaching as the ultimate level of customer service, and to share this collective knowledge into a repository like The Analogies Project is way overdue.”
