For the past 13 years, Security magazine has been recognizing the Most Influential People in Security. Our goal with this editorial awards project is to recognize some of the security executives, industry experts and professionals making a difference each and every day in the complex, ever-changing world of security and risk management.

These professionals, executives and leaders have been nominated by their colleagues or peers and were chosen based upon the unique stamp that each individual has had within the security landscape.

Our editorial staff is humbled by the number of nominations we received and the number of people in the security industry doing great things. We are pleased to offer you a glimpse into 12 of those influencers’ backgrounds, careers and accomplishments with this year’s profiles on the Most Influential People in Security 2022.

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