Hardware Security, Leadership

BSW #150

November 5, 2019

Henry Harrison is the CTO of Garrison. A contrarian in the security industry, Henry Harrison of Garrison believes the only way forward is to implement security on the foundational level through Hardsec. An evangelizing approach that emerged out of research and development from the UK’s national security, hardsec relies on hardware security executed through the use of non-turing machines digital logic – chips that are too dumb to be hacked – to eliminate cyber threats. This moves away from the generic chip sets and advocates for a more unique and specialized chip set for devices where security is paramount. During this conversation, Henry can talk about this approach and what it would take for it to become widely adopted.

  1. The digital skills gap may be the biggest one
  2. Companies won’t ignore the role of social issues in recruiting
  3. Employers can expect never-ending ‘reskilling’
