Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“In a world where information is rapidly becoming a viable form currency; securing this information has become a challenge of enormous proportions. No longer can protecting information be the sole responsibility of a few individuals, but rather there is a shared responsibility amongst the wider population. However, educating and raising awareness amongst the non-specialist community has always been a challenge for security professionals. The analogies project is taking a different perspective by not only by utilizing stories that seek to engage and inform users, but also by making these freely available. I look forward to contributing towards the project and seeing how it develops in the future.”
