The Harold Weiss Award for Outstanding Achievement is named after long-time EDP member and industry leader Harold Weiss. A GE engineer in the 1950s, Weiss is credited with creating the precursor to today’s CACS conference. His Automation Training Center offered data processing classes for auditors and auditing training for computer professionals, with waiting lists that were years long. When EDP Auditors Foundation took over the CACS conference in 1985, it created the award to honor Weiss’ pioneering work in the field by recognizing an individual for sustained contributions to the advancement of the governance of enterprise IT.
