Professor Mary Aiken Inducted into Infosecurity Europe’s Hall of Fame

Infosecurity Europe, Europe’s number one security event, has announced Professor Mary Aiken as the latest industry name to be inducted into the event’s Hall of Fame for 2017.

Established in 2008, the Infosecurity Europe Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who are pioneers, celebrating and acknowledging the achievements of these internationally recognized information security visionaries, luminaries, practitioners, advocates and thought-leaders. Infosecurity Europe Hall of Fame alumni include Jack Daniel, Professor Fred Piper, Bruce Schneier, Eugene Kaspersky and Alan Turing.

Professor Mary Aiken’s inclusion in Infosecurity Europe’s Hall of Fame recognizes her long-term contribution to the information security sector as the world's leading expert in Forensic Cyber-psychology, her work as an advocate and educator in information security and her role in raising the profile of the information security sector.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be inducted into the Infosecurity Europe Hall of Fame,” Professor Mary Aiken said, “particularly as this award is made by members of the Infosecurity community and industry. It is a particular honor to be inducted into a Hall of Fame that includes one of my personal heroes, the outstanding scientist Alan Turing.”

Professor Mary Aiken will be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame during a session on the Keynote Stage at this year’s Infosecurity Europe 2017, taking place at 13.45-14.30 on Thursday June 8, where she will be joined on stage by Infosecurity Magazine Editor Eleanor Dallaway to discuss her career as a forensic cyber-psychologist, her current research projects, and share insights on future threats and the importance of human factors in information security.
