- Sustained leadership in cybersecurity research, policy, education, and/or enabling of best practices in implementation or engineering;
- Work accelerating tech transfer of cybersecurity products, toward the enabling of cost-aware, secure solutions.
Winners receive a check in the amount of $1000 and a plaque commemorating their win. The IEEE thanks the MITRE corporation for their generous gift in support of this award.
