Sadly, Harold F. Tipton passed away on Friday, March 16, 2012. We're grateful for his many years of friendship and guidance. Hal was instrumental in the creation and development of the information security publishing program at CRC Press.

Hal was an independent consultant and past president of the International Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2.

He initiated the Rockwell computer and data security program in 1977 and then continued to administer, develop, enhance, and expand the program to accommodate the control needs produced by technological advances until his retirement from Rockwell in 1994. He was a member of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) since 1982, president of the Los Angeles Chapter in 1984, and president of the national organization of ISSA from 1987 to 1989. He was added to the ISSA Hall of Fame and the ISSA Honor Roll in 2000. He received the Computer Security Institute "Lifetime Achievement Award" in 1994 and the (ISC)2 "Hal Tipton Award" in 2001. He was a member of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Computer and Telecommunications Security Council and the National Research Council Secure Systems Study Committee (for the National Academy of Science). He received a bachelor of science degree in engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy, a master's degree in personnel administration from George Washington University, and a certificate in computer science from the University of California, Irvine.
