Cross-Generation Analogies Initiative

                    Inspired by the response we had to ‘What the Elizabethans Teach Us About Cyber Security’ (our most shared ever analogy) and to mark the latest collaboration with Lucinda and her father Jonathan Armstrong, we’d like to invite you to team up with your children (or parents) and create an analogy together. This initiative is open to everyone, whether you’re an existing contributor or not and it’s a great opportunity to include voices and ideas from outside the security industry. If you’re interested in taking part, please register your interest via our contact form and we’ll give you more information and access to a free webinar on how to create a cross-generational collaborative analogy. The closing date for submissions is 31st July,...
