To acknowledge leaders who are playing a critical role in shaping the way governments approach information security and privacy, GovInfoSecurity announces its fourth annual list of Influencers.
When we published our first Influencers list for 2010, the main factor in making our decision on who to select was the position each one held. In the following two years, we purposely excluded those from the previous years so we could expand the list of people who influence IT security policy, process and practice in government.
But with a new term for the president and a new Congress, we decided to start fresh and select 10 individuals regardless of whether they appeared on the list before. All but two of those listed for 2013 have appeared on earlier versions of the ranking.
Our editors chose these individuals for the influence they’ve had over the last year, as well as the impact we expect them to have in 2013 and beyond.
Do you have any “honorable mentions” that you would add to this list? Post your comments below. Today’s post pic is from SalesBenchmarkIndex.com.
