Cyber Security Recruitment

Evolving Cyber Threats Demand Exceptional Cyber Security Talent

Recent estimates place the cyber security (also known as cybersecurity or InfoSec) talent shortage at more than one million job openings, with 82% of Information Technology (IT) decision makers expressing concerns about the skills shortage, according to McAfee. Their concern is well founded. Today’s cybercrime threats range from assaults by individual hackers to coordinated attacks on the part of nation states. They include analytics-based phishing and DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks, global data sabotage initiatives, and intelligent malware and ransomware designed to learn your network’s weaknesses and exploit them.

Hackers have proven relentlessly agile, and cyber security professionals must possess the skills and adaptability to outwit them at every turn. That’s why 70% of hiring managers have plans to increase their cyber security workforce, based on Frost & Sullivan research; cyber security recruitment is critical. The problem is that more than half of open positions take at least three months to fill, and 27% of companies say they can’t fill their cyber security positions at all, according to ISACA.

 

How Cyber Security Recruitment Outsmarts Your Cybersecurity Talent Shortage

To develop a well-executed security protocol, your organization needs Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) with a high-level understanding of strategy that looks beyond individual threat incidents and views the IT landscape as a whole. You need board members and cyber executives who will support new security initiatives designed to address both current and emerging threats. And you need talented data scientists, software engineers, cyber security engineers, security consultants, and IT personnel who can implement strategy.
