    Dr. Collins is the rare cybersecurity professional who is able to straddle the technological and administrative chasm between advanced research and development and “in-the-trenches” security praxis. His keen insight into network security analysis coupled with the ability to cull through jargon and hype to bore into to the crux of a security issue make him the singular standout for this award.

    Congratulations to Dr. Collins. He first gave to me the utter calm of certain security, when he swore to eat the roses of our thorny oppressors. He banished them, as all of us knew he would. Well done Michael.
