The Analogies will be a source of content to enable those in private enterprise, academia and government to better communicate and understand the contribution of information security to the success and prosperity of nation states, organisations and citizens in the information economy. The content will be delivered through a variety of initiatives. Each initiative exploring alternative communication techniques, media and partners.
The Analogies Book is a series of analogies, based in fact, illustrating the relationship between life, information and information security. The Text will be the primary source of almost all the Project’s activities.
The work of several authors, unified by a single editorial voice, The Analogies Book ranges the world and the centuries finding Analogies which have stories to tell that resonate and have lessons to teach us. The book will draw on the personal careers, lives, interests and knowledge of 20 successful and recognised individuals from outside of the information security domain across business, academia, entertainment, sport and government. They will draft stories, drawn from the past and present, and a small team of information security specialists will highlight the information security risks and draw the parallels with recognised best practise.
