Each of these influencers for 2016 has made a substantial impact. Their influence ranges from shaping and enforcing national health data security and privacy regulations to providing breach prevention and data protection insights. In some cases, the influencers have shined a spotlight on growing cyberthreats and serious information security gaps and risks that need to be more aggressively mitigated.

Our selections include some well-recognized leaders as well as a few individuals and groups whose focus on security and privacy behind the scenes offesr a role model. In some cases, the influencer represents a call to action.

Our editors, with input from our editorial advisory board members, made the selections of the top influencers based on the impression they've left over the last year, as well as the impact we expect them to have in 2016 and beyond. We also made the selections based on interviews with leaders and our news coverage throughout 2015.
