SSN opens '20 under 40' nominations You can now nominate eligible security professionals for the '20 under 40' Class of 2018

YARMOUTH, Maine—Security Systems News is excited to announce the opening of this year's “20 under 40,” nominations, a distinction for up-and-coming young professionals that are really making a name for themselves in the security industry.

“The Security Systems News '20 Under 40' awards, now in their 12th year, allow us to recognize the next generation of security industry leaders in both the integrator and end user communities,” said Paul Ragusa, SSN's editor. “We here at SSN feel is vitally important to shine a light on the best and brightest young professionals helping to shape the industry today and blazing a new path forward. The future of the security industry is in their hands.”

Each year we select two classes of “20 under 40” award winners, one class for integrators and one for end users. Each class recognizes 20 security professionals under the age of 40; each nominee must be born in 1978 or later.

The integrator class encompasses employees from alarm dealers, integrators and monitoring companies, while the end user class recognizes security directors and similar professionals. People from manufacturing companies and consultants are not eligible.

Our 2017 integrator class featured individuals from ADT, Rapid Response Monitoring, MONI Smart Security, and Securitas ES, among others. The 2017 end user class honored employees from Verizon, U.S. Bank Stadium, MAPFRE Insurance and Square Inc.

The 2018 winners of “20 under 40” awards will be honored at a special reception at SSN's next TechSec Solutions conference, to be held in 2019 in Delray Beach, Fla.
