People are the most challenging enablers in any cybersecurity team, that is, besides other enablers such as processes and procedures, technologies, and policies. At the same time, they are also the most cost-effective resource in an organization. For this reason, the cybersecurity domain’s demand for human resources is always more than the supply, leading to an extra-long cycle of recruitment. Therefore, even with a detailed and precise job description and set up interviews, only a handful come with the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for the available position.
Consequently, those candidates that meet only the base requirements are hired and then trained. Although the training may help, the candidate may still carry other dormant challenges could lead to failure:
- Being unable to think out of the box.
- Do not bring additional value to the organization.
- Not motivated.
- No job satisfaction.
In this webinar, we look at the reasons mentioned above from a different perspective. We will discuss personality types and how knowing this in advance will help when selecting appropriate candidates for cybersecurity roles. By doing so, you are putting yourself in the position to maximize productivity and efficiency and decrease the cost of human resource management considerably.
