In Memoriam: Remembering Those Who PassedIn Memoriam: Remembering Those Who Passed
Security stands on the shoulders of giants. We take a moment to remember their contributions toward keeping people, data, and systems safe.
January 6, 2023
The beginning of a new year is an interesting moment, as we, like the ancient Roman god Janus, simultaneously look ahead to the future and contemplate the past. The industry is currently awash with predictions on what may happen and resolutions on what to change. Security practitioners are gearing up with new budgets and priorities as they steer their security programs to meet all challenges that come their way.
But it is also a time to review: Many lessons can be learned from the sheer volume of threats and significant breaches of the past year. Our reminiscences should not stop with technology or attacks, however, but should include all of the people who work tirelessly everyday to push the industry to be better.
This transition period is also a time to reflect on those members of the community no longer with us — those pioneers and leaders who made significant contributions to cybersecurity and whose impact continues to reverberate throughout the industry. Here at Dark Reading, we keep in mind the example set by Tim Wilson, our co-founder and former editor-in-chief, who passed away in 2021. Cybersecurity is foundational, as its advancements and innovations are built on prior work of those researchers, practitioners, and educators who believed deeply in protecting people by securing the systems, applications, and data that underpin our modern lives.
Dark Reading takes a moment to remember these individuals.
