Executive by ExecRank
Curt Dalton selected from more than 10,000 security professionals following a
comprehensive two-year evaluation process
BOSTON -- July 16, 2013
Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE) today announced that Curtis Dalton, vice president and
chief information security officer, has been named a 2012 Top Security
Executive by ExecRank, an executive ranking service. The 2012 Top Security
list is the culmination of two years of research and feedback from evaluation
committees and top chief information security officers (CISOs) and chief
security officers (CSOs) from Fortune 100 companies around the world. The
selection process leveraged an algorithm based on performance in 24 key areas
to identify the top 100 security executives from 10,000 professionals.
“In today’s increasingly connected, always-on world, information security is a
critical component in companies’ abilities to successfully package and deliver
their services,” said Dalton. “I am honored that my work on behalf of Sapient,
which reflects our commitment to delivering the highest level of client
service for our clients around the globe, is being recognized by ExecRank.”
There are currently more than 10,000 security executives, including chief
information security officers, in the United States. A select few are awarded
the distinction of being a part of ExecRank’s “Top Security Executive
Rankings” for 2012. The number one area of focus for security executives in
2012 has been their role in developing and implementing security processes
that minimize risk in an increasingly unpredictable digital environment.
“Curt is highly regarded amongst his peers as a top security expert,” said
Adam Navrozally, analyst for the rankings division of ExecRank. “His strong
record of leadership and continued contributions towards innovating the
security industry made him an obvious choice as a “Top Security Executive.”
Mr. Dalton brings more than 22 years of experience as a security executive,
working with a range of firms, including many Fortune 500. He has been a key
contributor to the security industry, authoring a dozen articles in popular
trade magazines, and a book, Security Architecture: Design, Deployment &
Operations published by Osborne McGraw-Hill. Mr. Dalton was directly involved
in the development and implementation of some of the first known firewalls. He
developed a very early version of an Intrusion Detection System before the IDS
acronym existed and implemented one of the first global VPNs. Mr. Dalton’s
experience also includes successfully founding, growing and managing a
privately held information security consulting agency. Mr. Dalton is certified
as a CISSP, CISM, and ISMS Lead Auditor & Implementer and is a professional
member of ISC2, ISSA and ISACA.
