Why I Joined The Analogies Project
“I am thrilled to support The Analogies Project in it’s mission to simplify the message around security and to help people relate to complex security challenges through simple and memorable everyday analogies that everyone can relate to. We use analogies inherently in our everyday lives as security professionals; but never really consider the power of these analogies and how they can be expanded upon to help people of all technical levels relate to the complex world of Information Security. Embracing these natural parallels through analogies will not only help clarify our message but it will also help make the core security messages easier to recall at that critical time when the security professionals are no longer in the room!”
