For each influencer whom we have selected, we include their Twitter handle, blog URL and reasoning for selecting them. We also include their answer for what infosec-related superpower they would choose to have.
This year’s list (in no particular order) has some old faces and some new. Do you agree with our choices? Who else would you have chosen?

There are so many super powers I’d love to have. Most of them would be useless 99% of the time, but fantastic parlor tricks. Like gravity control; who wouldn’t love that!?
