EUROPE LIST: 50 Women of Influence in Cyber-security Europe 2019

EUROPE LIST: 50 Women of Influence in Cyber-security Europe 2019

In cooperation with Bonnie Butlin of WISECRA, SC Media UK is delighted to announce the 50 leading European* Women in Cyber-security for 2019. *Excludes UK which has a separate list, link below.

On behalf of SC Magazine UK, it is my pleasure to announce the Top 50 European Women in Cyber-security for 2019. As executive director of the Security Partners’ Forum and international coordinator of the Women in Security & Resilience Alliance (WISECRA), I believe that recognising the accomplishments and successes of women in security -- both locally and globally -- is essential to supporting, facilitating, and building capacity within security, both for women and for the security profession as a whole.

In creating this year’s Top 50 list, we evaluated each individual across a variety of vectors, such as conferences spoken at, articles and books published, evidence of demonstrated cyber-security expertise, current and previous positions, prominence within open sources and social media activity, such as LinkedIn feed, tweets and posts, and additional information obtained through informal discussion and engagement with international communities and professional networks and colleagues. 

I would also like to thank Luigi Rebuffi, secretary general of the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO), for his assistance in terms of insights and recommendations for this list.
