International Federation for Information Processing

The Kristian Beckman Award Award committee has decided to grant the Kristian Beckman Award 2009 to Klaus Brunnstein.

This is to honor

  • his persistent work to underline and make known the importance of Information Security to the international community,
  • his holistic approach already at a time, when this required a stand beyond and ahead of the mainstream, and 
  • his integrative initiatives to make the work in IFIP not only an academic gathering but also to enable interactions with and between a broad groups of users, such as societies and organizations.

See the slides of his acceptance speech at SEC'2009 in Pafos, Cyprus.
