IFSEC Global has announced that Microsoft CSO Mike Howard, security consultant Don Randall MBE and Baroness Neville-Jones, chair of the British Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), star on a 30-strong judging panel for its ‘Top influencers in security and fire 2018.’

Lead judge Grant Lecky, co-founder of the Security Partners Forum, drew on his extensive contacts network to appoint a diverse line-up of judges. He said: “Many of these judges were appointed based on strong recommendations and all are award winners themselves – often multiple times. They could hardly be better positioned to identify the next generation of influencers coming through.

Several have even appeared among IFSEC’s influencers in previous years. Though being a judge bars them from appearing this time round, they’re all only too happy to ‘send the elevator back down’ to other professionals doing great things in the fire and security industries,” he added.

Lecky himself featured in IFSEC Global’s list of top influencers in 2014 and 2017. In the last year alone, he has won five prestigious accolades, including a spot on the Canadian Who’s Who and an Outstanding Achievement in Global Cybersecurity (OAGCS) Award from the Ontario College of Management and Technology.
