There's More To Cyber-security Recruitment Than Just Job Titles, Why?

July 3, 2019

A job in cybersecurity is the hot ticket for anyone who wants to work in tech right now. Data compiled by recruitment website Indeed recently showed a 15% increase in the number of jobs being advertized for sufficiently skilled candidates in the 12 months between 2017 and 2018.  

The rise in popularity of such jobs shouldn’t come as any great surprise given the current climate. The frequency and severity of data breaches is increasing, with attacks on well-known businesses making the news on a regular basis. And with the implementation of ever-tighter privacy laws such as GDPR, businesses have never been more focused on protecting their networks and the precious information that flows across them.

But what do these jobs actually entail? Rather than any detail about the skills currently needed, all we see are vague, generalized job titles – “IT Security Specialist, IT Security Engineer, Security Consultant”. It would be hard to be less specific. Yet, it’s the specialized expertise, knowledge and experience that lies behind these titles that matters most to an organization’s security. Unfortunately, the HR teams, heads of business and board members that make the decisions around who to hire often won’t understand the nuances of what being on the front line against cyber threats really involves.
