A headline out of CyberSN today caught our attention, so we decided to dig a little deeper. Not all press releases warrant an article devoted to their content, but this one does. A new dedicated cybersecurity career marketplace from CyberSN fits nicely to fill a void we have noted and written about for some time now.
CyberSN is an industry-leading cybersecurity career and staffing firm, and today they launched the CyberSN Marketplace. This dedicated resource provides cybersecurity professionals with no-cost access to jobs, career resources, salary information, and job matching needed to accelerate and manage their careers successfully. The Marketplace complements CyberSN’s well-established Agency staffing services, which are also accessible to hiring firms at CyberSN.com.
This new career resource positions CyberSN as the premier one-stop-shop for all cybersecurity career and staffing needs between self-service on the Marketplace and full-service staffing offerings.
Launching at the Black Hat USA conference, the CyberSN Marketplace delivers access to 53,000+ cybersecurity jobs currently posted in the United States. This volume of available jobs makes CyberSN the premier destination for cybersecurity professionals to find their next job, manage their long-term career success, and maximize job satisfaction.
This new Marketplace builds on the CyberSN Job Taxonomy, a comprehensive model that organizes jobs based on tasks and projects into ten categories and 45 functional roles. From executive management to cybersecurity analysts, professionals can make a confidential public profile so employers can find them without sharing their identity on a public platform. The CyberSN platform then matches professionals to these jobs based on their profile and allows them to connect with their choice of jobs that match. Professional members can also take advantage of CyberSN’s career planning and pathing tools, salary and industry data, and training and educational resources.
As far as we can tell, the CyberSN Marketplace is the industry’s first “Deep Job Platform” for cybersecurity professionals. As Industry experts such as Andreessen Horowitz have discussed, deep job platforms go beyond simple job listings to provide “products and features specifically designed for the candidates and companies they work with” within a given vertical.
“The cybersecurity job search process is alarmingly broken. Generic job sites don’t work in this highly specialized and growing field. And cyber professionals often don’t join public networks due to confidentiality and security concerns,” said Deidre Diamond, Founder and CEO, CyberSN. “Most job descriptions stink, professionals can’t find jobs that fit their needs and experience, and the results speak for themselves. Data shows that 41 percent of cyber professionals want to leave their current employer. Still, it takes CISOs an average of eight months to find a new position and at least four months for a security engineer. Our platform fixes this, and getting professionals into jobs that fit isn’t just good for them and their employers; it’s good for the industry.”
Diamond continued, “Our goal is to become the absolute go-to destination for jobs, career expertise, and resources for today’s cybersecurity professionals and hiring organizations. CyberSN provides all of the tools and connections that are needed to “Pwn Your Career™” and for hiring firms to build their teams fast and build them to last.”
All cybersecurity professionals are invited to create a confidential profile and browse the jobs that match at the CyberSN Marketplace here.
Besides the taxonomy-driven job listings, search and matching, and confidential professional profiles, the CyberSN Marketplace offers tools and services in its Career and Hiring Centers, such as a free job description builder, career mapping, and pathing guidance. It also includes the Provider Exchange, a directory of relevant training, education, product and event resources, and SecureDiversity.org, promoting diversity, equality, and inclusiveness in the cybersecurity profession.
“CyberSN’s team understands this constantly changing industry and discipline,” said Bill Pelletier, an Information and Product Security Leader in Boston, MA, just placed by CyberSN. “They understand the language, and they care for job candidates as individuals and not just a means to an end. This individual attention means that when you’re scheduled for an interview, you’re not talking to just any random company, but one whose needs closely match your abilities and goals. The result is targeted, realistic, and a perfect fit of function, position, and—essential in my case—mission. I cannot say enough positive things about CyberSN and their extended team.”
If you’re looking for a new cybersecurity position or a qualified professional, we suggest that you check out the CyberSN Marketplace or Agency staffing services, respectively.
