Cybersecurity and GDPR

over 1 year ago by Alison Owen

Recruiters aiming to be compliant with GDPR need a robust cybersecurity strategy of their own

Cybersecurity and GDPR will be one of the most influential areas affecting technology in 2018.  If you’re in recruitment, it could be your meal ticket and your ruin, simultaneously growing and killing your business.

Over the last 12 months, the world has seen some of the largest and publicly announced data breaches and cyber attacks in history. Recruiters are a prime target for cybercriminals. Why? Because recruiters hold the one thing that hackers love: data, and lots of it.

But there’s big business to be made in the cyber security and GDPR.

The average salary for a cybersecurity professional rose by five per cent in 2016. The sector is lucrative for both candidates and recruiters, but there’s a catch; there simply aren’t enough people to fill these roles. If this skills gap persists, who will come to your rescue when you become the victim of a cyber attack?

Getting your head out of the sand

Recruiters need to be bold and seize the opportunity to grow your business through cybersecurity before you lose the chance, as the market is there for those who are ready to take it. Identifying, targeting and placing the best cyber security talent will be the biggest growth enabler for your recruitment business in 2017, but getting there requires addressing some of the following points.

Know the sector: Cybersecurity is an incredibly profitable area to recruit in as demand is so high, but if you don’t know HTTPS protocol from DOS attacks you probably won’t succeed in putting the right candidate in the right role. 

Targeting the right candidates relies upon utilising the best platform to push out your roles. Take a bold and analytical approach to reach candidates in the places where you’re actually likely to get their attention.
