Starting in 1990, recruiting IT Professionals across all disciplines of IBM Mainframe, AS/400, DEC VAX, UNIX, PCs, Network Infrastructure, Application Development, Database Administration, etc., transitioning into recruiting professionals for IT Security Jobs was a natural progression.
This transition began in the mid 1990s and by the late 1990s, the majority of Jeff Snyder’s recruiting was focused in the Information Security space. Information Security recruiting led to IT Audit recruiting in the 2001 timeframe. Information Security and Audit recruiting transitioned into Regulatory Compliance recruiting with the creation of regulations like GLBA, SOX and HIPAA.
Today, we see even another shift in that our Information Security recruiting focus is converging with a focus on Physical Security recruiting. At an even higher level, many of our searches focus on Technology Risk Management, Physical Security Risk management and Enterprise Risk Management.
We haven’t been asked to deliver candidates who are currently coming out of military or law enforcement backgrounds but we are asked to deliver candidates who are currently in corporate security jobs and who are in enterprise risk management focused roles.
