Alina is a Marketing Coordinator at Titania, a small cyber security company in the heart of Worcestershire. She started working part-time for Titania while completing her final year in Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations at the University of Worcester. For a while she suffered of “Jen from the IT crowd” syndrome, but 2 years on and a steep learning curve later, she came to understand much more about the industry and the need for cybersecurity to enter the business vocabulary.
Coming from a business and communications background and a complete outsider to the information security industry, Alina discovered a fascinating new world that relies heavily on stories to make itself understood. She then discovered interesting people, with inspirational stories, ambitions and passions; people with a sense of humour, and a love for life, computers and acronyms. That’s what made her want to find the best way to translate information security in the language of businesses and non-technical people.
Alina comes from Romania and she can work her way around a number of languages such as Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian. The languages that remain closest to her heart are Romanian, English and Spanish.
Why I Joined the Analogies Project
“Between the world of information security and the world of business, there is a huge gap. Sadly, the only time you hear about cyber security is when something goes awfully wrong and the media need a scapegoat. I like stories and I like languages. The Analogies Project is the only place where I have seen the language of “cyber” translated into a story that everyone can relate to. Albert Einstein said it best: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”. The Analogies does just that and it is fantastic to be part of the narrative.”
