ISSA Hall of Fame recipient

Yesterday I received wonderful and humbling news from Kevin Richards, International President of the Information Systems Security Association that I’m being inducted into the ISSA Hall of Fame. In the realm of information security, this could probably be compared to the Hollywood Oscars. It is tremendously exciting and as I’ve mentioned, very humbling for me to receive this honor.
