The Reboot Leadership Awards are an ongoing program that honors executives and professional leaders in security for unique, inventive and inspiring contributions to the field. SC Magazine chooses honorees based on how they shape the industry, provide thought leadership, or have an overall positive impact on the practice or understanding of cybersecurity.
