CISO & CSO Power 100 #CSO & #CISO Power 100

Cybersecurity is undoubtedly one of the most important roles in today's tech and business worlds! The CISO & CSO Power 100 keeps track of some of the world’s most influential CISO and CSO leaders across industries.

The CISO & CSO Power 100 updates weekly and primarily focuses on tech leaders in the United States, but a few notable international names may also appear on the list. Scores are generated based on how many Twitter followers each CISO/CSO leader has and how many people they follow on Twitter.

This list is managed by Clarify360, connect with them on twitter at @Clarify360.
