Cyber Security Recruitment

Recruitment companies face difficulties when trying to work in the cyber security industry, especially when the recruiters don’t have a cyber background or particular specialism. This can lead to difficulties in identifying the right candidate and understanding their skillset and background.

SalesLynk provides the personal, business and cultural information recruiters need, through a cyber security lens

No more wasting time screening the wrong people.

A classic recruitment situation: The recruitment company has been hired by a client to recruit a cyber security professional.

The recruiters don’t have a background in cyber security.

The client has provided a detailed job description for the position.

The recruitment company begins by researching the cyber security industry to gain a basic understanding of the skills and qualifications required for the position. This includes trends, regulations, breaches, standards, upcoming events, known threat actors etc. 

The recruiters then reach out to job seekers in their database who may have relevant skills or experience in cyber security. Understanding in what is CV filler and real experience is difficult.

Some initial challenges:

Lack of understanding of the cyber security industry:
The recruiters may not have a good understanding of the industry, which can lead to difficulties in identifying the right candidate.

Finding the right candidates – The cyber security industry is highly competitive, and the recruiters may struggle to find a suitable candidate with the right skills and qualifications. Equally, it is increasingly difficult to understand what experience the candidate really has

Assessing technical skills – Building on above, the recruiters may not have the necessary technical knowledge to assess a candidate’s skills in cyber security, which can lead to difficulties in identifying the right candidate.

Ensuring the candidate is a good fit – The recruiters may not have a good understanding of the client’s company, cyber challenges they solve, the culture and values etc. which can lead to difficulties in ensuring the candidate is a good fit for the role.
