2021 Fed 100

Federal 100: Shawn Henry


Name: Shawn Henry
Title: President of the Services Division and Chief Security Officer
Organization: CrowdStrike

Leading from the front. In 2020, CrowdStrike Services saw a spike in cyber intrusions, larger ransomware demands and little opportunity for organizations to improve their security posture during the chaos brought on by the global pandemic. Henry and his team sprang into action by identifying and preventing adversaries from attacking at-risk industries and providing the public with much-needed information on cyberthreats. His team also helped scores of clients conduct compromise assessments, proactive cyber drills and simulated tabletop exercises so they would be prepared for a real-life security incident. Henry also helped leaders worldwide better understand their organizations’ defenses, risks and high-value targets.
