In Memoriam

Becky Bace

March 14, 2017

Chief Strategist at the Center for Forensics, Information Technology, and Security at the University of South Alabama, Becky struggled against the discrimination against women pervasive in the industry, but persisted anyway, becoming one of the principal pioneers of intrusion detection technology. Entire companies exist because of the work of Becky and her colleagues.

Becky was a pioneer in cybersecurity research, having a career that began at the National Security Agency, before moving on to Los Alamos National Laboratory and then on to a number of private sector positions. She was an author and recognized leader in her field. Her most favorite role was that of mentor and teacher.

The Colloquium recognizes that the protection of information and infrastructures that are used to create, store, process, and communicate information is vital to business continuity and security. The Colloquium's goal is to work together to define current and emerging requirements for information assurance education and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information assurance curricula, especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
