NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SC Media, the industry-leading cybersecurity information resource of CyberRisk Alliance, today released its 7th annual roster of trailblazing women in the field. In all, 20 cybersecurity leaders were recognized for outstanding contributions to their own organizations and to the information security community.

SC Media’s Women in IT Security honors leaders in four categories:

  • Veterans, who have delivered consistent performance and innovation over long careers
  • Power Players, who through industry engagement and attainment have risen to positions of influence
  • Advocates, who have advanced cybersecurity awareness and served as beacons for expansion and diversity in the field
  • Women to Watch, who are commanding attention as drivers of the industry’s next wave of growth and innovation

The 20 honorees hail from diverse sectors including: defense, consulting, tech, retail, law and education, among others, representing a range from major corporations like Google, Apple, Walmart and Deloitte to startups, consultancies and foundations.

The honorees were selected by SC Media’s editorial staff, under the leadership of Editor in Chief Jill Aitoro and Executive Editor Teri Robinson, with the guidance of an advisory panel of women leaders in the field that includes prior-year honorees. SC Media’s coverage of the annual honors will be featured on SC Media throughout the week of October 26. In addition to honoree profiles, the Women in IT Security package will include in-depth analysis of women’s evolving presence in cybersecurity, as well as video interviews with women leaders across sectors on important issues facing the industry. The 2020 honors also mark the launch of a year-round Women in IT Security channel within the SC media domain, where the editorial team will cover women’s progress and presence on a continuous basis.

“The goal of SC Media's Women in IT Security is not only to recognize incredible leaders driving progress and change in cybersecurity, but also to spotlight the fact that they are not the exception,” said SC Media Editor in Chief Jill Aitoro. “Women are growing in influence and numbers and will continue to overcome obstacles and take a rightful and necessary place at the table.”
