Dr. Harold Joseph Highland, FICS, FACM, DPE

One of the "grand old men" of data security, Harold Joseph Highland was founder and, for many years, editor of the prestigious "Computers and Security" magazine, and is still Editor-in-Chief Emeritus. He was a National Lecturer on computer security for the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) while they still did that, Fellow of the Irish Computer Society (FICS), Fellow of ACM (FACM), Life Member of IEEE, Technical Advisor for Computer Security for the Chinese Computer Association, PRC (Beijing), and a prolific author with over 28 titles to his credit. He once published an encyclopedia. (No, that last is not a joke.)

Specific to the virus research field, he is the author of the "Computer Virus Handbook", the first really accurate book on the topic.
