This series of in-depth interviews with prominent security experts features Gary McGraw as anchor. IEEE Security & Privacy magazine publishes excerpts of the 20-minute conversations in article format each issue.
Gary chats with Ming Chow, lecturer at Tufts University School of Engineering's Department of Computer Science. They discuss whether it's better to start with security people or people that know how to code already when building new software security professionals. They also talk about what developers currently think of software security, what would make developers more likely to take security seriously, and how Ming uses games to teach security to his students. They close out their chat with talk of obscure and not-so-obscure music.
