The Security Industry Association (SIA) has opened the call for nominations for the 2024 SIA Women in Security Forum (WISF) Power 100. All nominations must be submitted by Jan. 31, 2024.

Now in its third year, this annual initiative, presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum, honors 100 women in the security industry whose outstanding accomplishments and success stories are breaking barriers, redefining the faces of leadership and showcasing the innovative contributions women bring to the industry. 

“SIA is thrilled to launch the third year of the Women in Security Forum Power 100 program — a hallmark WISF initiative that honors the inspiring women leading, innovating and transforming our industry,” said Don Erickson, SIA CEO. “We encourage all SIA members and the global security community to submit nominations and help us identify and recognize the exceptional women leaders in their organizations.”

The Power 100 recognition program recognizes women in security who model leadership, inspire others and shape and transform the industry. The 2024 SIA WISF Power 100 honorees will be announced on International Women’s Day on March 8, 2024. Honorees will be invited to and recognized at a special SIA Women in Security Forum event at ISC West 2024.

“The Power 100 has been working tirelessly through collaboration as opposed to competition,” said Alice DiSanto, SIA WISF chair. “These women have pushed boundaries and represent champions of change. Together, the collective shines brighter to illuminate the possibilities and inspire other women to pursue leadership within the security industry.”

Power 100 nominations are reviewed by the WISF AmplifiHER Subcommittee and evaluated on the criteria of quality of response, significance of achievement(s) and positive impact towards innovation, leadership and/or diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
