Congratulations to the 2018 Visionary Leadership award winners.
The Cyber Security Summit is pleased to announce the names of its largest-ever group of Visionary Leadership Award winners. The Summit has given awards to top leaders in industry, government and academia since 2015. However, this year the awards program was expanded to include a wider array of visionaries. The goal was to recognize innovative people at all levels who help develop and foster strategies to protect critical systems and data.
These winners will be recognized at the Visionary Leaders Awards Dinner, hosted on the evening of October 23rd in conjunction with the 8th Annual Cyber Security Summit. Along with recognition for their accomplishments, award recipients will get a brief opportunity to share their innovative strategies with their peers and attendees of the Summit.
Visionary leaders from across the cyber security ecosystem were eligible to receive awards, which are known as “Morrie Awards.” The awards are named after Robert Tappan Morris, the American computer scientist who notably created the first computer worm on the Internet. He later went on to make significant contributions to computer networking as well as co-found the funding firm Y Combinator and become a tenured professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The Visionary Leadership Award Dinner is 10/23/19.
