HP Federal’s Tommy Gardner: Government, Contractor Personnel Should Think About IT Security Specs for Remote Work
Tommy Gardner CTO HP Federal

TYSONS CORNER, VA, September 29, 2020 — Tommy Gardner, chief technology officer of HP’s federal business, said public and private sector employees should look at system security protections when buying information technology products they will use in a remote environment for classified work, ExecutiveBiz reported Sept. 15.

“Just because systems will look the same … they are not the same inside,” Gardner said. “The design of the systems are unique. They are not commodities in any way, shape, or form. And so you have to be careful, if you really don’t know what you’re looking for, and you just pick the first thing that looks good on the exterior,” Gardner noted in a TechSperience podcast.
