Security in All Aspects of Design

Jim Gordon - Intel

Sep 12, 2018


Security in all aspects of design - from software to hardware to overall experience - has never been more important. As a student pursuing a degree related to security - or a student pursuing any degree that will be touched by security - you must keep the end in mind, from the beginning and at every step of any project. What ‘end’ is this and why is this point-of-view critical for you? It’s the difference between velocity and speed, the difference between delivering to specs and delivering for results. And in terms of cyber security, it’s not the blue screen of death in the balance but things that truly matter - privacy, data security, identity protection and even national security. Join Jim Gordon, GM of Security Ecosystem Strategy & Development in Intel’s Platform Security Division for a discussion on this topic. Jim has worked for Intel for 20 years but, prior to that, he was a student at the Krannert Graduate School of Management.
