Twice each year an exemplary group of long-term ISSA members are recognized in two categories: Fellows and Distinguished Fellows. These individuals have distinguished themselves in advancing the professionalism, stature, and influence of information security professionals through serving as leaders of ISSA and significantly contributing to the cybersecurity community as well as to chapter leadership and/or the international or national security posture. Honorees are selected by the Fellow Selection Committee and voted on by the ISSA International Board of Directors.
“The Fellow Program attracts a highly competitive pool of candidates and I am pleased to announce that seven Distinguished Fellows and 13 Fellows have been recognized by their peers,” said Ira Winkler, President. “We congratulate Ken Dunham and greatly appreciate his contributions to this association and the international cybersecurity industry.”
Dunham brings more than 20 years in the industry specializing in incident handling and malcode analysis. He currently is the Director of Global Response for iSIGHT Partners. Formerly, Dunham led training efforts for the U.S. Air Force for U-2 reconnaissance, Warthog Fighter, and Predator programs. He is also the author of several books, a regular columnist for ISSA as well as other publications, and has authored more than 5,000 security reports to date. He holds a Masters of Teacher Education and several certifications: CISSP, GCFA, GCIH Gold (Honors), GSEC, and GREM. In addition, Dunham leads multiple industry collaboration efforts, regularly briefing high-level security staff and executives in Fortune 100 companies.
The new ISSA Fellows and Distinguished Fellows will be honored at a reception on February 25 in San Francisco.

But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud cre...

Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In his session at Dev...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session a...

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
