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.
