Security magazine is pleased to announce our 2020 Most Influential People in Security – 22 top security executives and industry leaders who are positively impacting the security field, their organization, their colleagues and peers, and the national and global security landscape.

These security leaders have been nominated by their colleagues and associates, and were chosen based upon their leadership qualities and overall positive impact on stakeholders, enterprises, colleagues, constituents and the general public.

This year’s Most Influential is organized by the following categories: Corporate Security Executives, Cybersecurity, Government, Special Recognition and Associations.

Here you will find brief overviews of each honoree’s career path, goals and accomplishments – often across both the public and private sectors – as well as advice for those security professionals looking to follow in their footsteps, including being a security generalist, investing in lifelong education, seeking mentors and more.

Our special appreciation goes to Jerry Brennan, who was a project partner on this report and provided subject matter expertise and research.
