Security magazine presents the honorees of our fourth annual Top Cybersecurity Leaders program, which recognizes enterprise information security executives and professionals and their industry accomplishments. This year’s nominees represent the wide range of cybersecurity professionals making a difference across the field and in their organizations. Our 2024 awardees lead by example and improve security through innovative approaches to risk and technology.

The goal of the Top Cybersecurity Leaders program is to spotlight cybersecurity professionals who are making a difference in their organization and/or in the industry as a whole, and this year’s nominees didn’t disappoint. Our editorial staff was blown away by the caliber of this year’s nominations. We received an overwhelming number of nominees with years of experience, industry impact and cybersecurity leadership.

It’s been our honor to profile just a few of the cybersecurity leaders who mitigate risk within their own organizations and further the profession of cybersecurity with their industry involvement and contributions on a daily basis.

We’d like to thank our industry partners, ISACA, ISC2 and Minorities in Cybersecurity (MiC), for their help in making these awards a success. Nominations for the 2025 Top Cybersecurity Leaders program will open in August of this year. Nominees do not need to be a member of our industry partner organizations to apply.
