Each year, Security magazine honors top security executives who positively impact the security industry, their organization, their colleagues and their peers. They change the security landscape for the better. They are nominated by their colleagues and associates, and they are chosen based upon their leadership qualities and the overall positive impact that their security projects, programs or departments have on their shareholders, organizations, colleagues and general public. This year’s Most Influential is organized by eight categories: Corporate Security Practitioners; Cities, Counties, States Security; NGO Security; Information Technology/Cyber Security; Government Security; Security Organizations; Think Tanks/Universities and Defense Sector Security.


Congratulations to the Class of 2012 Most Influential People in Security.

A special thanks goes to Lynn Mattice, Jerry Brennan and the Security Executive Council staff, who were our project partners and who provided subject matter expertise and research.

Ronald K. Noble is the Secretary General of INTERPOL, a post he has held since being first elected in 2000 to head the world’s largest police organization, currently counting 190 member countries. Under his leadership, INTERPOL created the first-of-its-kind I-24/7 secure global police communications network, allowing the exchange of intelligence worldwide and the screening of the identity documents of more than half a billion times annually. In 2011 alone, INTERPOL’s tools and services facilitated close to 8,000 arrests by member countries worldwide. INTERPOL also now regularly sends teams to support countries hosting high-profile events such as the Olympics and G-8 meetings where security is naturally a concern. When terrorist attacks occur, INTERPOL deploys incident response teams to help countries determine any international nexus.Now in his third term as Secretary General, Noble is guiding the development of INTERPOL’s new Global Complex for Innovation, due to open in Singapore in 2014, to focus on cyber-crime and cyber-security.

Laurie Schive

Director of Outreach, Office of the National Counterintelligence

Executive, Office of the Director of National Intelligence


Laurie Schive

Laurie Schive

Prior to joining the ODNI in 2010, Laurie Schive spent 18 years at CIA followed by four years in the private sector. This background gave her a unique understanding of how to bridge the divide between government and industry needs in security and counterintelligence. She has worked to improve public-private partnerships that share best practices, threat updates and analysis, and she has championed the idea that the U.S. Government must speak to corporate America in language geared to the private sector – emphasizing, for example, that the protection of trade secrets is critical to corporate profitability and global growth. With these goals in mind, Schive established the private-sector outreach office within the ODNI’s Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive (ONCIX) in September 2010. In that capacity she has overseen the overhaul of the ONCIX Web site, expanding the amount of IC security and CI information available to the private sector; and she has created tailored warning and awareness briefings and products that have been used to educate more than one million private sector employees on economic espionage, insider threats and cybersecurity. In her outreach work, Schive has paid particular attention to small and mid-sized businesses that often don’t have the resources to protect against IP theft or the routine contacts with intelligence and law enforcement agencies that would foster threat awareness.
