2021 Global Top 100 Leaders in Information Security
Welcome to the inaugural Business of InfoSec Top 100 Leaders in Information Security report – Corinium’s list of the world’s top 100 leaders in information security.
This report exists to celebrate the outstanding work over the last 12 months of some of the greatest minds in information security.
2020 was a turbulent year for businesses worldwide, from the pandemic and the rapid shift to working from home to accelerating digitization, and the adoption of cloud-based applications and infrastructure. In these challenging times, we believe it has never been more important to shine a light on the innovative security and privacy professionals safeguarding their organizations’ people, networks, and data.
As an organization, Corinium is deeply embedded in the world of cybersecurity. Our global suite of digital cybersecurity events puts us in the perfect position to bring together and celebrate the most dynamic executives in cybersecurity from across the globe.
Of course, this list is not exhaustive – it is impossible to get every outstanding professional on one list. However, we are committed to providing an inclusive platform to amplify the voices of innovative professionals at some of the world’s largest cybersecurity organizations.
We also acknowledge that information security leaders face different challenges in different industries and parts of the world. For this reason, we have decided not to rank our ‘top 100’. The business leaders in this year’s list are all doing incredible work in their respective fields.
