Heng Xu won the Operational Research Society’s Stafford Beer Medal for 2018
Heng Xu was recently awarded The Operational Research Society’s Stafford Beer Medal for 2018 for her paper:
Parks, R., Xu, H., Chu, C. H., & Lowry, P. B. (2017). Examining the intended and unintended consequences of organisational privacy safeguards. European Journal of Information Systems, 26(1), 37-65.
The Operational Research Society is “the world’s oldest-established learned society catering to the Operational Research profession”. The Stafford Beer Medal was established in memory of Stafford Beer, a British theorist and professor who was a world leader in operational research and management cybernetics.
The paper is one of the first attempts to both systematically identify the impacts of privacy safeguard enactment and to examine its implications for privacy compliance in the healthcare domain. See Taylor & Francis Online for the full paper.
