Singapore has been known as a hub of the cyber-security sector in the Asia Pacific region and has been a top-ranked country in cybersecurity index released by the United Nations. The result of society’s growing reliance on digital systems has caused a surge in attention to cybersecurity. Companies that hold confidential client data, accounts, personnel files and business plans are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Considering the rise in cyber attacks, it has become growing global importance to practice cybersecurity in this digital world.
Cybersecurity has also created new job opportunities. Businesses are constantly on the lookout for candidates who can solve and execute solutions to improve the efficiency and reliability of cybersecurity. However, the greatest cybersecurity threat is the lack of cyber professionals in the industry. Though there are many new job opportunities, there seems to be a shortage of experts. Hence, companies need to generate new strategies to attract cybersecurity talents to achieve the success of cybersecurity recruitment.
With cybersecurity becoming increasingly important to companies’ systems, the demand for professionals in the cybersecurity industry has escalated. Since data is a valuable asset for companies, it is essential for companies to hire the right talent to combat cyber attacks. Thus, cybersecurity recruitment is necessary to deliver the efficiency of data protection.
Recruiting cybersecurity talents is not an easy task. Especially in this industry, there is a shortage of skilled professionals with specific experience and qualifications. Whether a company wants to recruit cybersecurity experts internally or use an external provider, it is a challenge as the demand outruns the supply. It will typically take months of searching and effort to fill cybersecurity-related positions.
Given that there is a shortage of talents in the cybersecurity industry, many companies are struggling to compete and hire highly-qualified candidates. Companies can instead recruit passionate candidates as it might be a more competent approach as long as extra training can be provided to groom them into high-skilled cybersecurity professionals. Besides providing extra training, companies can engage with recruitment agencies who specialise in the IT industry or Cybersecurity industry. These specialised recruitment agencies are committed to helping companies to source for the most qualified cybersecurity professionals in the most skilled manner.
There are numerous recruiters and headhunters available in the market, so it is important for companies to choose the right recruitment agencies.

These agencies have the right network of contacts and are crucial for finding those talents with specialised skillsets needed for cybersecurity.
