Everything is digital nowadays. Our professional, personal, and financial lives have all begun to gravitate toward the world of the internet, mobile computing, and electronic media. Unfortunately, due to the prevalence of this phenomenon, we are more vulnerable than ever to malicious attacks, invasions of privacy, fraud, and other such annoyances.

That is why cybersecurity is such an important component of a secure and well-organised digital world. This also means that a strong approach to cybersecurity is no longer a “nice to have,” but rather a requirement for all businesses and organisations.

These days, LinkedIn has become a great place to go to get the latest cybersecurity news and events, connect with cybersecurity experts and raise your cybersecurity awareness. There are a number of “influencers,” constantly filling our feeds with flawless and fascinating glimpses into the complex and diverse world of cybersecurity, it’s easy to get lost bouncing from one profile to the next.

But with so many popular accounts, who are the best influencers to be looking at? We’ve put together a top 10 of cybersecurity LinkedIn personalities of 2021 for you to follow, who have used the platform to effectively share valuable and insightful views on the topic.
