Dark Reading’s Kelly Jackson Higgins Honored as Top Cybersecurity Journalist

In voting conducted by the SANS Institute, Jackson Higgins is named by peers as one of the top 10 journalists in the industry.

Dark Reading executive editor Kelly Jackson Higgins has been named a Top 10 Cybersecurity Journalist in voting conducted by the SANS Institute earlier this month.

The 10 award winners were selected from a field of more than 100 journalists through a multistep nomination and voting process among active journalists. The awards recognize the full body of work contributed by each journalist during 2018. Dark Reading staff editor Kelly Sheridan was also a nominee.

Jackson Higgins won the Top Ten award the last two times the SANS Institute conducted the voting, in 2014 and 2012.

A veteran of more than two decades of IT journalism, Jackson Higgins has worked for Dark Reading since its inaugural year in 2006. Prior, she covered a variety of IT technologies and published articles in publications such as Network Computing, Secure Enterprise Magazine, and CommunicationsWeek.
