Vale Professor Fred Piper, Information Security Group, Royal Holloway University of London.

I’m truly saddened to hear about the passing of Professor Fred Piper. He was instrumental in founding the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London, in 1990. As an alumni I have very fond memories of Fred and all the faculty.

We should prize our great teachers and our great mentors and the legacy they leave our world — their students, their ideas, and their vision.

RIP, Fred … you laid the foundation for us to build on. Our world needs great leaders, teachers and mentors.
