Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“I started writing about application security after I realized there is so little information available publicly so I had to conduct my own researches while it was obvious that other people have done the same things already. The problem still exists because most publications are aimed to expert audience. However, information security is not a theoretical science but rather the art of combining computer technology with human communication and psychology. Basic security principles are simple, they just need to be explained in layman’s terms.”
