International Federation for Information Processing

The Kristian Beckman Award Award committee has decided to grant the Kristian Beckman Award 2010 to Basie von Solms.

This is to honour his never tiring work towards broadening the meaning of Information Security in various aspects, e.g. by adding management aspects to the academic perception of information security and by creating the field of Security Governance. It is also to honour his work as Chair of TC-11, when he strongly demonstrated the importance of information security within IFIP and the whole field of information processing, and his various achievements in the area of IT Security Education on all levels.

The Award will be presented at IFIP SEC 2010 in Brisbane, Australia.
