(ISC)² Creates Harold F. Tipton Memorial Scholarship Fund

Tipton, who founded (ISC)2, passed away March 16

London, U.K., March 22, 2012 - (ISC)²® (“ISC)-squared”), the world’s largest information security professional body and administrators of the CISSP®, today announced it has created the Harold F. Tipton Memorial Scholarship Fund as a tribute to (ISC)² founder Harold F. Tipton, CISSP-ISSAP, ISSMP. Mr. Tipton, also a key architect and long-time keeper of the (ISC)² CBK®, the canon of global security topics upon which all its credential programs are based, passed away on March 16, 2012. His life and career impacted thousands of information security professionals around the world, encompassing 35 years of passionate, selfless dedication to the information security profession and to furthering the (ISC)² mission of professionalising the workforce.

Part of the (ISC)² Foundation’s Information Security Scholarship Program, the Harold F. Tipton Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to honour Mr. Tipton’s legacy by providing aspiring information security professionals an education pathway and by supporting the development of the next generation of information security professionals.

W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director for (ISC)², remarked, “Hal’s passion for information security was legendary. He had a significant hand in shaping and growing our profession, and his mentorship and tireless work continue to drive (ISC)²’s mission today. Hal’s work with our organisation as CBK committee chair, past president, chief instructor, and ambassador has made an imprint on us all. We hope to honor his drive, charitable spirit and relentless pursuit of excellence through this new Scholarship by opening doors for students to this exciting, rewarding career field.”

(ISC)² will recognise the first Tipton Memorial Scholarship recipient at its second annual (ISC)² Security Congress, September 10-13, 2012 in Philadelphia. For more information about the Tipton Memorial Scholarship or to apply, please visit http://education.isc2.org/harold-f-tipton-memorial-scholarship-fund/.

In addition to the newly founded Scholarship, (ISC)² continues to celebrate Hal’s life and body of work with his namesake award, the (ISC)² Harold F. Tipton Lifetime Achievement Award. Please share your thoughts and memories of Hal on the (ISC)² blog and in the InterSeC community.
