UH professor chosen as ISSA Fellow

The Information Systems Security Association, an international nonprofit organization of information security professionals and practitioners, elects new members of its Fellow programs twice a year.

This fall, the organization chose William Art Conklin, UH associate professor and director of the Center for Information Security Research and Education.

Fellows “must have been members of the organization for at least eight years, have three years of volunteer leadership and five years of significant performance in the profession,” according to a UH press release. They must also be nominated and then seconded by an existing Fellow.

New gun laws affect students

Several new laws on handgun possession and concealed carry take into effect Sunday, including reduced training requirements, easier renewal and allowing people to keep weapons in their car if they drive on college campuses.

The new laws will cut training time — previously 10 to 15 hours minimum — in half, and make renewing one’s license online possible. Though students are now allowed to keep their handguns in their vehicles if they are a licensed handgun owner, concealed carry on campuses is still not allowed.

In an article with the Houston Chronicle, Sen. Donna Campbell, R-New Braunfels, “said she introduced the bill hoping that reducing the number of training hours would encourage more people to apply for concealed handgun licenses.”
