SC Magazine's third annual Women in IT Security edition recognizes some of the industry's best and brightest leaders, achievers and influencers. As we did last year, we're starting things off by highlighting 25 women – our Power Players, Women of Influence and Women to Watch – whose contributions to the field prompted their designation as our 2016 honorees. You'll also find in-depth features on a range of topics – from women taking a stand against revenge porn to updates on how tech and security companies have followed through on their promises to diversify the workplace. A Q&A with former honorees catches us up on the challenges these women have faced and the lessons they've learned since we last shown a spotlight on them.
Each year, it is our hope that the topics discussed here will provide insight and, most of all, bring about improvement within the industry. It's with great pleasure we present to you our 2016 Women in IT Security issue.
