17. Michael Howard, Senior Security Program Manager

Security book author and speaker Howard seems to be everywhere. His presence is much larger than his responsibilities--and he has influence. He is more a thought leader than operational influencer.


Among Microsoft's 70,000-plus employees, there are many influential people. Twenty-five is too small a number to capture the best of the best among a large group of creative people. But Microsoft corporate culture also is very staid and insular, with a top-heavy power structure. Therefore, for this list, I focused more on operational influencers, although there are some thought leaders included. By Joe Wilcox, Microsoft Watch
