Congrats to all CISOs who made the CISOs Top 100 CISO (C100) 2022 in North America


The C100 list was released today and I must say that it took days to review and verify references for several hundred candidates. Here are a few reasons why I consider the C100 award special:

  • Experienced CISOs review and select the winners
  • All candidates must have at least five years of experience as a CISO or equivalent position
  • We consider the candidates’ involvement and leadership roles in professional organizations
  • Volunteering and activism are part of the selection criteria
  • Last but not least, the board considers mentoring, teaching, and educating future cybersecurity professionals across business and technical functions

The criteria are super transparent, and there is no fee or financial requirement at any point associated with the C100 awards.

To all winners of the C100 2022, I salute you!
