Matt Bishop Inducted into the Cyber Security Hall of Fame
In recognition of his research in the safety of computer systems, University of California, Davis, Computer Science Professor Matt Bishop was inducted into the 2023 class of the Cyber Security Hall of Fame this past fall.
Since 2012, the Cyber Security Hall of Fame has honored individuals who have demonstrated leadership in the fast-growing cybersecurity industry in fields such as technology, education, business, policy and public awareness.
Bishop’s research focuses on analyzing vulnerabilities in computer systems, and he has worked extensively on countermeasures to threats on these systems to make them as safe as possible. He is well-known for his work in elections and e-voting systems, helping election officials in California and across the country vet their electronic voting systems and processes to find and fix security issues since 2003.
Bishop is also known for his teaching, educating the next generations of computer scientists who will continue to improve the field and, with it, the security and reliability of society’s internet-based infrastructure. In 2022, Bishop received two prestigious honors in recognition of his research and teaching: The Taylor L. Booth Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society and election to the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) Hall of Fame.
Last year, Bishop was also named a Distinguished Member of the Association for Computer Machinery for his outstanding scientific contributions to computing.
