Sounil Yu of JupiterOne Named Winner of the Top 10 CISOs of 2021 by Cyber Defense Magazine

The term “Baby Black Unicorn” signifies a cybersecurity company that has the potential to reach a $1 billion dollar market value within 3-5 years (a few years longer than a Black Unicorn) as determined by private or public investment and these awards showcase those companies with this kind of incredible potential in the cybersecurity marketplace. JupiterOne’s CISO Sounil Yu competed against many of the industry’s leading Chief Information Security Officers and Security Experts at large in these award categories. 

“We’re pleased to name Sounil Yu of JupiterOne as a Top 10 CISO for 2021 among a small, elite group of information security professionals and also JupiterOne as a finalist in our third annual Black Unicorn awards,” said Judges Robert R. Ackerman Jr. of AllegisCyber Capital, David DeWalt of NightDragon, Dr. Peter Stephenson of Cyber Defense Labs and Gary Miliefsky of Cyber Defense Media Group

“The whole JupiterOne team is thrilled to congratulate Sounil Yu for being named a Winner as a Top 10 CISO of 2021 and also to see JupiterOne recognized as a Baby Black Unicorn,” said Erkang Zheng, CEO of JupiterOne. “Sounil has been a consistently inventive and thoughtful leader for the security sector, and he is a critical component of how our company continues to mature in the future.”
