InfoSec Executive Search Launches
An exciting time in cyber recruitment lies ahead for InfoSec People as we launch our powerful sister company InfoSec Executive Search Ltd. InfoSec Search will bring the highest quality executive search principals and processes to the UK cyber security market at a time of unprecedented demand for talented cyber leaders.
The Rise of the Chief Information Security Officer
Cyber Security is now a Board-level agenda and is currently seen as one of the top threats to successful, profitable business.
In addressing this challenge, the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and Head of Information Security roles are the latest C-suite executive positions to step into the spotlight, with organisations of every size recognising the need for a specialised executive taking direct oversight for information security and assurance strategies.
Addressing the Retained Search Knowledge Gap
With the CISO role being a relatively new addition to C-level retained hires, traditional search firms without a background or deep understanding of the information security sector have struggled to fully understand the role of the CISO, which itself has developed significantly in complexity, breadth and responsibility over the past few years.
“Having completed several successful cyber leadership engagements under the InfoSec People banner recently,” comments Chris Dunning-Walton, Managing Director, “we took the logical step to launch a stand-alone Executive Search firm which bridged the Search knowledge gap around the complexities and nuances of the CISO position. With over a decade of experience working with some of the UK’s most dynamic and knowledgeable CISOs, we are excited to continue adding value to these trusted relationships through InfoSec Search.”
The decision has been well received with the team winning their first retained Head of Cyber assignment within 8 days of launching.
With an Executive Board featuring proven technical security experts alongside search professionals, InfoSec Search are uniquely placed in our understanding of the network within UK Cyber Security leadership.
InfoSec Search is the third company under the InfoSec brand, following the launch of our specialist cyber security advisory firm, InfoSec Consulting back in April and building on the success of cyber recruitment business, InfoSec People that celebrated 10 years of business in March.
Based out of HQ offices in Cheltenham, the hub of Cyber Security in the UK, InfoSec now offer a company or organisation of any size the ability to create and grow a robust cyber security capability from the Executive level down.
