For years the IT industry has been trying to address the cybersecurity gap and although great strides have been made, there are still significant gaps in mid to upper-level positions. There are specialized human resource positions and recruiters dedicated to filling these types of IT roles, all resulting in the cost of filling these positions increasing. For that reason, it makes sense for businesses to consider the question, how can I find talent that may be the right fit for cybersecurity roles within my business? Finding talent within your business is not always easy. It also requires some investment and foresight. But considering the alternative of high-level positions waiting to be filled for months and costly recruiting, finding internal talent makes sense.
The key to having a succession plan that works involves including training as a key component of company culture. This means more than just allocating time and resources for training. It means following up to see who is enjoying the training, who is successful and encouraging pathways for education that help staff to fill much needed roles within the business.
