SC Magazine is to introduce a top 50 of the most influential security people for 2010.
The ‘SC Most Influential 2010' will be an accurate and detailed reflection of who the industry sees as the most influential information security practitioners in the UK.
It will be compiled through a research programme performed in conjunction with (ISC)2, and will seek not only to create the definitive list of the top influencers in the information security community, but also to find out from the respondents what qualities they would define as being influential.
The process will begin with three stages of research comprising a definition of the criteria, nominations and then a judging process. At the end of this process the marks will be collated and the top 50 most influential information security practitioners will be derived from these scores.
At an evening reception, due to be held at a central London venue in October, the top practitioners and thinkers in information security will come together to discover who has made the list and also network with their peers.
Paul Fisher, SC Magazine editor, said: “This will be an interesting and comprehensive effort to discover who the most influential names in IT security are, and how they are viewed by their peers and the industry. Although a long process is ahead of us, I am sure that this will be an intriguing and fascinating investigation into the role of the modern professional.”
