The Black Unicorn Report for 2020

“We’re pleased to name these finalists and winners among a small, elite group of cybersecurity industry leaders and innovators in our second annual Black Unicorn awards,” said Judges Robert R. Ackerman Jr. of www.allegiscyber.com, David DeWalt of www.nightdragon.com and Gary Miliefsky of CDM

CYBER DEFENSE MAGAZINE (CDM), the cybersecurity industry’s leading publication and provider of daily infosec news from around the globe, today announces the winners and finalists in the Black Unicorn Awards and the Top 100 Club for 2020.

The term “Black Unicorn” signifies a cybersecurity company that has the potential to reach a $1 billion dollar market value as determined by private or public investment (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicorn_(finance)) and these awards showcase those companies with this kind of incredible potential in the cybersecurity marketplace.

In addition, Cyber Defense Magazine has named winners in the Top 100 Club for Women in Cybersecurity, CISOs and Cybersecurity Startups this year. Inclusive in our awards, we not only have the Top 100 Women in Cybersecurity to share, we opened our first annual Women in Cybersecurity scholarship program. One of our Top 100 Women in Cybersecurity had this to say:

“Now is a fantastic time for young women to plan out their future careers in cybersecurity. It’s a hot field with hundreds of thousands of career openings and unlimited opportunities for those who wish to make a positive impact on today's digital world,” said Carolyn Crandall, Chief Deception Officer, Attivo Networks, Inc.

After reviewing dozens of well written entries from various future leaders, it was very difficult to choose a winner among the candidates, but we found one who we consider stellar. She is Annabelle Klosterman.

“I am honored to be a recipient of the first annual Cyber Defense Media Group Women in Cybersecurity scholarship. As a recent high school graduate, I am blown away with the positive support I have been receiving for pursuing my passion in cybersecurity. The support will help me impact our youth, improve companies, and better ensure the safety of our country,” said Annabelle. Her stellar bio is here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/annabelleklosterman/
