Dave Cullinane, chief information security officer at eBay, will be honoured on 28 March in Boston with the SecureWorld Lifetime Achievement Award "for his outstanding contributions to the advancement of the information security community."
Cullinane is being recognised for, among other things, his work on industry standards and associations such as the security information sharing outfit IT-ISAC, by SecureWorld, which is hosting a conference in Boston next week.
Cullinane is chairman of the board for the Cloud Security Alliance, which has established a Security Trust and Assurance Registry (STAR) to help cloud customers gain better insight into cloud security processes.
He has also been active with the Security for Business Innovation Council, which last year issued a report on advanced persistent threats and spoke to Network World about APTs being a major concern.
