IEEE announced that the Hans Karlsson Standard Award 2012 has been given to Paul R. Croll for

dedicated leadership of the IEEE Systems and Software Engineering Standards Committee, and for his diplomacy and collaboration in facilitating the development of a collection of high-quality standards.

The award celebrates those who have achieved a lot in computer standards and has been established in 1992 in memory of in  of Hans Karlsson (1942-1992), chairman and father of the IEEE 1301 family of standards.Paul Croll is a Fellow in CSC’s Defense Group. There he is in charge of research, development and deployment of practices in software engineering in general, and cybersecurity in particular.

Accoding to a press report,

Croll has more than 35 years of experience in mission-critical systems and software engineering, including requirements specification, architecture, design, development, verification, validation, test and evaluation, and sustainment for complex systems and systems-of-systems. He has worked in surface warfare, air-traffic control, computerized adaptive testing, and nuclear power generation.

Croll has been active in the development of ISO/IEC/IEEE 15026, the benchmark standard for system and software assurance in the lifecycle processes, and ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207, the framework standards for system and software lifecycle processes, as well as several other ISO/IEC/IEEE standards. In addition he is active in the ISO/IEC SC 27 effort to develop new standards for cybersecurity in supply-chain risk management.

An IEEE Senior Member and Computer Society Golden Core member, Croll is one of three cosponsors of the recently released National Defense Industry Association/US Department of Defense (DoD) guidebook, Engineering for System Assurance. He co-chairs the US Department of Homeland Security/DoD/National Institute for Standards and Technology Software Assurance Forum Processes and Practices Working Group.
