Brian Richardson currently works as the Security Marketing Lead for Intel Data Center & AI Marketing Product Strategy
Prior to his work in security marketing, Brian focused on the firmware that quietly boots billions of computers. He focused on implementation of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), migrating the industry from 16-bit PC BIOS, and promoting standards-based firmware development (tianocore.org). Brian has presented at multiple technical conferences, including Intel Developer Forum, Bsides, LinuxCon, Linaro Connect, and UEFI Plugfest.
Brian incorporates his interest in photography, video production, and event hosting at Dragon Con into his work in technical marketing. He also incorporates his interest in martial arts into his farm improvement projects by occasionally kicking things that don’t work properly.
