Security is one of the top priorities of every organization today.

We are looking for an outstanding individual to drive our hardware enablement security effort and thus continuing to drive leadership for HP’s "most secure and manageable PCs" commitment to our customers in the commercial/business PC product lines.

This position reports directly to the Director of Device Security in the Business Personal Systems (BPS) organization.

  • Identifying early and ongoing govt/federal certification requirements for our PCs, as well as ensuring our PCs meet the necessary certification requirements
