Beat the Curve - Search for Talent Today
The so called “new normal” looks like it’s here to stay for a while, so what does this look like for the search for Talent in the Cyber Security Industry?
With a huge 70% of organisations looking to increase Cyber Security spending due to growing concerns over opportunistic Cyber Crime on consumers and employees, businesses are starting to re-energise their growth strategies to meet the demand. We are starting to see this with an increase in recruitment activity, where our partners are in talks with talent now, in order to be in a position to act fast when budgets and hiring returns.
Despite many companies still maintaining a recruitment freeze, there are still a number of vendors hiring and even if they are not, hiring managers are seizing the opportunity to get ahead and position themselves ready to strike when things change. If you are a hiring manager looking to hire in the near future, then there is a huge advantage in building momentum right now, where you can get ahead of the curve and be ready when the roles become available. Unfortunately, we all know that unlocking headcount can take time and there is a risk in being flat footed when they do eventually turn on.
Whilst we can’t look into the future, Cyber Security is certainly a better place to be right now, especially when you look at other industries that rely on physical social interaction, where they will continue to be affected by social distancing. Total internet usage is estimated to have surged by 50-70% as more and more people are exploring new ways to connect online. Yet another indicator, that as more people use the internet, the more vulnerabilities will exist, especially with the “working-from-home” fragmented situation.
Eventually, we will overcome the situation and go back to some sort of normalcy, but in the meantime to get in touch, start working with us to enhance your position and be introduced to some of the best talent in the industry – STAY ALERT – and keep this fantastic industry moving forward!
