3 Reasons to use Focus on Security to recruit the talent you need to protect your organisation, and create a secure, robust environment for your business.
Cyber security threats have increased in recent years, with the digitalisation of businesses, the rise of remote working, advances in technology and increased exposure to risk all contributing to a rise in vulnerability.
In addition to this, the increased workload is contributing to a high turnover rate among cyber security professionals. Finding the right talent for your organisation, at the right time, in the right numbers, is key to retaining the professionals you need. The lack of maintenance of infrastructure is still the number one reason systems are compromised.
Finding the right staff to overcome these challenges, or to expand your current team, is more important than ever. Talent is scarce in all industries and sectors at present, so finding the right specialist with the required skills is paramount. Luckily, Focus on Security have a well-established and accomplished network of professionals, so we know what good looks like. At the Focus Group, we’ve even achieved a 3:1 CV to hire ratio.
We’re 100% focused on cyber security, and here’s what that means for you and your project.
1. A deep understanding of the cyber security industry
Our consultants are solely focused on the recruitment of cyber security professionals, and undergo rigorous training and development when they join our team. Their understanding of the industry is second-to-none, meaning they can be more than just a Recruiter. We partner with businesses to consult on every phase of the recruitment process, identifying what you need, who you need, and when you need them. We don’t buy in to a quick fill at any cost. We work hard to find you the talent that can help shape your organisation, and align results with your business goals. As experts in our field, we help you eliminate errors, streamline processes, and gain greater accuracy and control over your security landscape.
Staying up to date on cyber security news and market updates is part of our day-to-day. We’ll keep you in the know, so we can help you anticipate what you will need in the future and plan for this, rather than just covering the here and now. This is why we have a 97% customer retention rate.
2. Direct access to experienced security specialists
Recruiting the right talent with the relevant skill set can be very challenging, even when the general candidate pool is overflowing (which at present, it’s not). Our consultants have extensive networks, which they maintain and grow, building trust with cyber security professionals and forming long-lasting relationships. We have placed professionals in nearly every corner of the globe, so your talent pool isn’t restricted to a particular area, country, or even continent.
There are a number of security roles you might need to recruit for simultaneously, which can be challenging. The hiring processes for different roles can lead to very diverse experiences, and manging this is a challenge in itself.
Focus on Security are specialists in recruitment across the entire spectrum of security careers, giving you direct access to a network of experts in their field. Some of the skillsets we can provide include (but are not limited to):
- Network – Security Architects/Engineers
- SOC Analysts
- Splunk and Qradar consultants
- GRC Consultants and Managers
- DevOps – DevSecOps and Consultants
- Cloud Architects/Engineers
Whatever your requirements are, you’ll have direct access to an experienced, extensive network of professionals, at all levels of expertise, and a trusted Consultant managing this.
