Each year, the Executive Women's Forum announces their "Women of Influence" Awards at their annual EWF event.
The awards, co-presented by Alta Associates and CSO Magazine, recognize outstanding women in several categories: one winner from the public sector, a private solutions provider from the security industry, a corporate practitioner from the private sector, and a "One to Watch," a future leader in the security field. This year, a lifetime achievement award was also given. The winners were nominated by peers in the security community.
CSO asked each winner of the 2012 WOI awards to give us their perspective on their success, lessons learned in their careers — and how women are making their mark in the security industry today.
