My latest piece for The Analogies Project – using real life and stories to demystify InfoSec. An excerpt:
“Bike helmets, warnings about strangers, weather forecasts and traffic lights don’t guarantee your kid’s safety. It’s about how they choose to behave. Whether they use provided tools and knowledge to stay safe and whether your influence trumps temptation and social pressure when there’s a choice to be made.
Of course your users are NOT children. They are an incredibly diverse bunch of skilled individuals with variable perceptions of security risks, controls and what constitutes acceptable behaviour, but very similar principles apply…” You can read the whole analogy here
