Class of 2015

Cynthia E Irvine

Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at Naval Postgraduate School

Cynthia E. Irvine is a Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at the Naval Postgraduate School. Her research has focused on developmental security as applied to the creation of trustworthy systems, and more recently, on cyber operations. She is a champion of cyber security instruction designed to ensure that the foundational concepts of constructive cyber security are integrated into academic courses and curricula.

Through curriculum development, educational tools, the supervision of student research, and her professional activities, Dr. Irvine is a true leader in cyber security education.

Jerome H. Saltzer

Professor Emeritus of Computer Science Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Jerome H. Saltzer has been a faculty member at MIT since 1966, where his teaching and research interests have been about principles of computer system engineering. His involvement in cyber security began with the discovery in 1964 that it was surprisingly easy to break into the MIT Compatible Time-Sharing System.

He helped design the security aspects of the Multics time-sharing system and he led the development of a security kernel for Multics; later he led the development of the Kerberos single-login authentication system. His paper with Michael D. Schroeder "The Protection of Information in Computer Systems" collected a set of security principles that have been widely cited for four decades.

Ron Ross

Fellow, National Institute of Standards and Technology

Ron Ross is considered the “Father” of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) security standards and recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on cyber security. He is the principal architect of the NIST Risk Management Framework and led the development of the first set of unified cyber security standards for the federal government, including the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community.

Dr. Ross has received the NSA Scientific Achievement Award, Defense Superior Service Medal, Department of Commerce Gold and Silver Medals, and three Federal 100 Awards. He has been inducted into the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) Hall of Fame and is an ISSA Distinguished Fellow.

Steven B. Lipner

Director of Software Security in Trustworthy Computing Security at Microsoft (Retired)

Steven B. Lipner is recently retired as the Partner Director of Software Security in Trustworthy Computing Security at Microsoft and serves as a board member and chair of SAFECode. He led Microsoft’s Security Development Lifecycle team and was responsible for its corporate strategies and policies for supply chain security and for strategies related to government security evaluation of Microsoft products.

He is named as an inventor on 12 U.S. patents with two pending applications in the field of computer and network security, and is co-author of the book, The Security Development Lifecycle.

Susan Landau

Professor of Cybersecurity Policy at Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Susan Landau has been a twenty-year leader in the "Crypto Wars." Her books, Privacy on the Line: The Politics of Wiretapping and Encryption, co-authored with Whitfield Diffie, and Surveillance or Security? The Risks Posed by New Wiretapping Technologies, testimony in Congress, and technical and policy research have helped ensure the widespread availability of strong encryption.

Landau has been a long-term advocate for NIST's Computer Security Lab, including during her tenure on the Information Security and Privacy Advisory Board. She is a strong advocate for women in computer science, and has organized workshops for women students and young faculty. Landau is Professor of Cybersecurity Policy at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and has previously been a Senior Staff Privacy Analyst at Google and a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems.
