Edward Schwartz, 2013 Honoree

Vice president and chief security officer
RSA, The Security Division of EMC
Reston, Va.
Characteristic most important in an IT hire:
Integrity. Security requires tough decisions in the face of some very difficult conversations with the business. It also requires that you maintain a level of ethics that is unassailable.
Skills you'll hire for this year:
Data analytics and data science for big data for security management.
Boldest IT prediction:
Although probably unthinkable today, most cybersecurity will move to the cloud. Just as most organizations are moving IT to the cloud because it's not their core competency and because they want to capture the potential business benefits, security will go the same way for the very same reasons.
