Security Institute’s Wilf Knight Award 2015 goes to Bucks New University Student

The prestigious award, presented as part of the IFSEC Security Excellence Awards was awarded to James Eaton for his paper, Key Performance Indicators For Information Security Management In The Public Sector. James, a post graduate student at Buckinghamshire New University, was the unanimous choice of the judging panel who praised the work as an original piece of applied research that will have definite appeal to IT security managers, policy developers and scholars within the traditional security management field, the information security discipline and broader business continuity. The judging panel felt the final submission to be of an excellent quality that the student should rightly be proud of.

Garry Evanson, Chairman of the Security Institute and a member of that panel said “This work is an excellent example for other students to aspire to and is a validation of the importance of the annual Wilf Knight Award in bringing to a wider audience some cutting edge thinking on security issues that might otherwise go unnoticed. We are delighted to be the promoters of this important award”

Phil Wood, Head of School, Management and Professional Studies at BNU said “We at Buckinghamshire New University are delighted that the excellence of our postgraduates has been recognised again by our second Wilf Knight Award in the past three years. James has produced an excellent piece of research which has reflected not only the hard work and specialist knowledge that he is applied to his Masters, but also to the work and effort of the academics and delivery teams at the University.”

James Eaton is employed by Lockheed Martin UK as an Information Security Manager. He is based in London, where he provides service integration and management to the Ministry of Justice.

Now in its seventh year, The Security Institute’s prestigious Wilf Knight Award is presented annually at the IFSEC Security Excellence Awards in recognition of a unique piece of research into a security management based subject.
