Last week I published an article on the Guardian about how real-world intuition can help teach us lessons about securing our software.

Our department has done an advent series, posting an article every day in December leading up to Christmas. It's been a great success, particularly in the diversity of topics covered. I'm proud to be able to add something on security!

Hopefully I'll follow it up with some more articles that go into a bit more technical depth on how we apply those lessons to the applications we build at the Guardian.

I hope you enjoy reading it.
