CM Group's Content Master security guru Rich Harrison recognised for work with online child safety programme.

Richard Harrison of CM Group

(ISC)² has selected Harrison who works for CM Group’s Content Master division in Seattle, Washington State, to receive a 2010 (ISC)² President’s Award for his outstanding voluntary work on the secure online education and awareness program for schools.

(ISC)² (pronounced “I S C-squared”) is a not-for-profit organisation and is a world leader in educating and certifying information security professionals. (ISC)² started its Safe and Secure Online programme a few years ago to bring cyber security experts into schools to educate children ages 11-14 about how to protect themselves from online dangers.

After learning of the initiative, Harrison volunteered to lead a US pilot programme in the Seattle area for the organisation. It was a great success, and since then he has become the national lead mentor and spokesperson, as well as providing recommendations to enhance the programme’s content. He has been seen on Seattle TV as well as spoken with reporters from all over the US.

Harrison said “This has been a vital initiative to support young people across the country by helping them to understand how to look after themselves and remain safe and secure online. The award reflects credit on all those who have volunteered to help children in this important area”.

Rich Harrison is the US General Manager for Content Master part of CM Group and is a recognised expert in IT security and infrastructure in traditional as well as Cloud based environments.
