Why I Joined The Analogies Project
“The Analogies Project fills a big void in the information security world; it takes a difficult, broad topic and makes it much more digestible. These analogies work for all age levels, from children to boardroom decision makers. InfoSec practitioners are essentially teachers, so being able to articulate complex ideas through commonly known, easily relatable analogies is a great tool to keep in every infosec tool belt.”
