The ISSAEF has partnered with the ISSA in the presentation of a Scholastic Writing Award for best student article. The ISSA Editorial Advisory Board for the Information Systems Security Association International’s (ISSA) Journal has invited current university students to submit information security articles for publication. The best article will receive the ISSA Journal Scholastic Award. The Board will accept articles until October 1, 2017. Details are located on the ISSA web site at this location.
It was with great sorrow that ISSA and the ISSAEF noted the loss of our beloved colleague and friend, Howard A. Schmidt. He was a long-time supporter of the ISSAEF and a friend to many of us on the Board, so we were pleased to name one of our scholarships in his honor in 2016, while he was still alive. We encourage you to continue his legacy by contributing to his scholarship through the Donate page.
