Joshua Franklin Receives Federal 100 Award

Joshua Franklin

Congratulations to Joshua Franklin for receiving the Federal 100 Award.  Franklin literally wrote the book on mobile device security. He had a huge impact last year as one of the authors of NIST’s Mobile Threat Catalogue, and he was responsible for setting the standards for cybersecurity in a series of hot-usa-button policy areas. In 2018, the Election Assistance Commission is poised to adopt the first major update to voluntary security standards for the nation’s voting machines since 2005, with Franklin as the principal developer. “It’s a constant challenge to make requirements that are detailed enough to have an impact but also apply to 55 states and jurisdictions,” he said.
