Why I Joined The Analogies Project
To use an analogy to explain:
“I’m an expert in my field, but when my car goes wrong I feel helpless and fearful that I am going to be overcharged by the car trade. I have now found a garage that uses plain English to explain exactly what’s wrong, short and long term implications of the problem and options to fix. The upshot –trust. I always return there. There are closer places I could go, but I always hand over my credit card feeling confident that I’m only paying for what I need.
In my opinion, the historic “them and us” tension between security professionals and the rest of the business is primarily due to the same feelings of debilitation and resulting defensiveness.
The Analogies Project is an excellent initiative that will help break down this language barrier and I am extremely happy to contribute in any way I can.”
