William Poon is currently working in the Financial Services industry in New York City as a Security Architect and Strategist with experience in securing computing platforms of many types. "My experience from Binghamton's Electrical Engineering program has provided the foundation that allowed me to analyze and assess systems given requirements and within constraints. Security engineering is just like other engineering disciplines, except that security is geared more towards defining constraints as opposed to designing to a constraint. Building on the skills I established at Binghamton to cover Financial Services requirements, adding security constraints, and business risk knowledge came very naturally thereafter, but could not have happened without the foundation established at Binghamton University."
