Why I Joined The Analogies Project
“As both a security practitioner, and an English major, I am always caught up in metaphor. Security itself is a metaphor, illusive, and always a heuristic problem to solve. I work at the confluence of public policy, security, and culture. Finding ways to incentivize these constituencies to improve security is my goal. The Analogies Project plays an important role in this regard, and I’m glad to take part.”
