It’s not that the skills aren’t out there. It’s that employers don’t always know where they are and what they want. That’s why it’s so vitally important to have insight into the cyber talent market – so you know how best to attract, engage and hire them, before your competitors do.
How to find cyber talent – our report
There is good news. The number of cyber candidates has grown year on year, and many of them are open to contract opportunities. What’s more gender diversity in cyber security is starting to move in the right direction, albeit modestly. At the same time, the number of vacancies has also risen exponentially, meaning that it’s absolutely a candidate’s market, emphasising precisely the need for effective attraction strategies.
We’ve produced a Cyber Talent Insights Report, which offers a general overview of the sector. Among many factors, it contains:
- average salaries by location (combining all sectors and seniority levels)
- where supply and demand is the highest/lowest
- which universities your talent might be studying at – so you can build graduate talent pipelines
- gender splits.
The report also shines a spotlight on penetration testing, SOC& SIEM and IAM specifically. This kind of insight, while an overview, can be used to help make better hiring decisions.
