Research: 2012 Security Staffing Survey

Feb 08, 2013


Greater Focus On Security

Security is the No. 1 area of planned staffing growth, according to our 2012 State of IT Staffing Survey, with 24% of respondents saying they plan to increase staff in that area during the next 12 months. Meanwhile, 30% of respondents say demand for security engineers will outstrip supply. And that can make it hard to find the right person for your company.

In this report, we'll discuss the three steps to successfully recruiting a security professional, the best way to test a job candidate's skills, and the role of certifications and personality assessments. (R5481012)
