Hiring the right cybersecurity leaders requires a thorough understanding of the organisational environment, as well as considerations of the responsibility and mandate, they are given in their managing role. Cybersecurity leaders are not only key to defining cybersecurity strategies but key figures in companies’ ability to attract and retain talents, and developing teams.
To increase the potential of a successful hiring, it is important to ensure fundamental considerations have been done, making sure management is engaged actively in the process. Is the role of responsibility clearly outlined? What is the current (IT) maturity level of the organisation? Consider the external and internal factors for cyber security. Are most outsourced or? Does the role require a technical or strategic skillset?
