The Pros and Cons of Cyber Security: How It’s Going to Grow and Kill Your Business
In the previous 12 months, Michael Page, a multinational consultancy, has been facing some of the biggest breaches of data and cyber attacks in the past. Recruiters have been a primary target for cybercrimes, as seen by the attacks of last year. Why does it happen? Recruiters have the one thing hackers want: knowledge and more.
But there’s a silver lining: cybersecurity is a big business.
The average wage of cybersecurity professionals in 2017 was five per cent higher than the average worker in technology (CW) at £57,706 (Experis). For both candidates and beneficiaries, the business is lucrative, however, fishing is available. There are just not enough people to play these positions. Who would come to your rescue when you’re victim to a cyber assault when the skills gaps persist?
Go out of the sand with your head
Recruiters must be audacious and avoid denying the apparent potential of cyber protection for employees. Take a chance to broaden your business with cyber security before you miss the chance, as the demand is open to those willing to do so.
In 2017 it will be the greatest growth driver for your recruitment company to find, pursue and place the best cyber security talent, but getting there will entail addressing certain points:
Save the industry, cyber safety is an immensely lucrative field to employ because demand is so strong, but you probably won’t be able to place the right candidate in the right position if you don’t know the HTTPS protocol from the DoS attacks.
Cyber security experts are able to be highly analytical and data-driven as well as strong background speakers. The sophistication and personal qualities of the applicant you are looking for are crucial to understanding.
The right forum: the right candidate is the best platform for your positions. Target the right candidates Cyber security experts are not going to take care of passive targeting candidates and a LinkedIn campaign is not going to cut them. Place your candidates where you are actually likely to gain their attention, take a bold and analytical approach.
Double-edged sword cyber safety:
In recruiting and cyber security, the proverb ‘living by the sword, dying by the sword’ cannot be better. Yeah, business growth and advancement in cybercrime are theoretically immense, but if you don’t pay attention, you can be a future customer of your applicant.
You’re mistaken if you assume your recruiting company is resistant to cyber assaults. Recruiting companies are the maintainers of some of the biggest data collection in the world-a fodder for glowing cyber criminals.
A data infringement or hack is a serious logistic hack, not just a logistic hack. Neither applicants nor customers wish to work with an information-safety risk recruiter that could cost the damage from such an attack.
It is time to wake up and brace yourself for what could be a business critical and take protective precautions to protect the data for those organisations that have not yet understood the seriousness of cyber crime.
During 2017 cybersecurity continues to be an immense burden on companies like a tonne of bricks of all sizes. Take the chance to present this UK-wide gap in expertise and become part of the next generation of skilled cybersecurity practitioners if one day you need their support.
