Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity center on describing the importance of understanding what the business actually needs before the candidate search begins.
One of the things Bob told us was: “We want to get really close to the client, to really thoroughly understand their business and what they need - not just a body, but what is your business, and what's gonna happen to your business if you don't get these resources in place. You have to have deeper discussions and drill down what they really need, not what they want but what they really need. And the same thing with candidates - we really whittle down to the finish line with these guys.” We agree!
