This award is presented to an executive who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and contributions to the community within and beyond information technology.

“Trustwave is honored that Bill Rucker has been awarded the 2022 AFFIRM Executive Leadership Award for Industry.

“It is an honor to receive the AFFIRM Award for Executive Leadership for Industry,” said Rucker. “I am proud of what is being accomplished at Trustwave Government Solutions. This is a wonderful recognition for me, but also for the tremendous work being done by the TGS team to innovate in the federal cybersecurity space. The launch of the first-ever managed detection and response (MDR) service specifically built for the rigorous requirements of the federal government shows that companies, regardless of size, can bring creative solutions to the table to better secure our nation’s digital assets.”
