Why I Joined The Analogies Project
“The analogies project allows me as a security professional to share my knowledge amongst the widest possible audience. I am aware that in the security profession we often speak in language that only our peers understand. Writing for a non technical audience enables me to improve my communication skills and convey messages to a whole new community.”
