Research Study – New Approaches to Cybersecurity Hiring, Training and Team Building
I’m excited to share that we just published a new research study – the (ISC)² Cybersecurity Career Pursuers Study – that can guide hiring organizations in understanding the experiences of those who have done the job, and the expectations of those working toward entering the field.
Findings point to strong agreement about:
Tasks and experiences that make a cybersecurity professional successful
The value of mentorship
Key career moments when pursuers typically seek a cybersecurity path
What attracts people to cybersecurity
Candidate qualities that are strong indicators of future success
The study offers 10 strategic insights that hiring organizations can use to build bench strength on their security teams, and also outlines the technical skill areas that pros say were most useful to know during their first three years in the field.
What do you think of their selections? Do you agree with the areas identified as important for those new to the profession to learn?
