Security magazine’s 2nd annual Top Cybersecurity Leaders program highlights enterprise information security executives and professionals and aims to inspire the next generation of cybersecurity executives with their stories. This year’s nominees influence peers, colleagues and other organizations with their day-to-day work, leadership, research and industry involvement.

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 an absolute pleasure to profile just a few of the cybersecurity leaders who mitigate risk within their own organizations or are furthering the profession of cybersecurity with their industry involvement and contributions on a daily basis.

We’d like to thank our partner, industry organization (ISC)², for their help in making these awards a success. Nominations for the 2023 Top Cybersecurity Leaders program will open in August of this year. Nominees do not need to be a member of (ISC)² to apply.
