The Analogies Project to Host Workshop at National Institute of Healthcare

Richard Corbridge, Chief Information Officer, at the NIHR Clinical Research Network has engaged The Analogies Project to facilitate an internal workshop with his team of 10 Information Governance managers later this year.  The workshop will utilise storytelling, analogies and metaphors to set the context for 4 areas of debate whilst also introducing the reasoning behind why such techniques may provide a platform for more effective engagement with stakeholders. The ubiquitous nature of knowledge, information and data in our everyday lives means that there’s a hidden story about information security everywhere. Finding those hidden stories provides us with an opportunity to engage more effectively with stakeholders, whether employees or the Board. “Information Governance and Security is something that clinical research in England takes very seriously.

Forbes article illustrates the truth behind The Analogies Project’s Founder first analogy: “The Case for Security Driving Prosperity”

Forbes recently published an article where a Swiss data centre reported a 40% increase in revenues, allegedly due to the growing concerns of individuals and organisations over government snooping and the subsequent threat to privacy. In one of our project’s first analogies “The Case for Security Driving Prosperity” Founder Bruce Hallas drew a direct link between information security and economic and social prosperity in Switzerland. The Swiss recognised centuries ago that people would be willing to pay a premium for confidentiality around any asset including information and data. They built a strong, national brand based on privacy which leveraged this and ensured the underlying structures needed to deliver against this brand were in place.  These same challenges are faced by business and captains of industry, and those who aren’t already doing so, may want to ask what lessons can we...
