CUPERTINO, CA (June 24, 2015) - Zeidman Consulting, a research and development contract firm specializing in digital hardware and software design and software forensics, today announced that founder and president Bob Zeidman was recognized by the Santa Clara Valley Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) with its Outstanding Engineer Award. Zeidman received the prestigious honor for his pioneering contributions to the field of software forensics.
The IEEE Awards program credits technical professionals whose accomplishments and contributions have made a significant impact on technology, society and the engineering profession. While Zeidman has expertise in several fields of engineering, he is particularly renowned for his innovative work in software forensics. Zeidman is considered a pioneer in the field for turning a subjective process into a quantitative measure and a reliable methodology. His book, “The Software IP Detective's Handbook,” is the standard reference and textbook on software forensics. His work has informed rulings in more than 150 high-profile court cases involving billions of dollars in disputed intellectual property.
This marks Zeidman’s second award from the Santa Clara Valley Section of IEEE. The nominator for this award was Ralph Bernstein, an IEEE Fellow for “contributions to digital image processing techniques of earth observation sensor data and applications to operational systems."
Zeidman stated, "It’s truly an honor to again receive an Outstanding Engineer Award from this respected organization. This recognition validates the fascinating and important field of software forensics, and is also a testament to the superb mentors and colleagues who have guided me along the way. I look forward to supporting the expansion of this exciting field for years to come.”
