As cyber threats grow and threat actors become more sophisticated, it can be easy to believe that solely improving technology will protect your organization. However, it takes more than technology improvements to develop cyber resilience.
Your talent is the foundation
The demand for strong cyber talent greatly outweighs the supply and will for the foreseeable future. Caught in a talent war, leaders often miss critical opportunities to improve their cyber talent management practices which would build a strong cyber workforce in the midst of the talent shortage.
Our Cyber Talent Management approach focuses on using proven strategies to empower you to make smart investments in your cybersecurity talent.
Supply and Demand: By 2022, there will be a global need for 1.8 million cyber employees.
Recruitment: According to research, 45 percent of hiring managers report struggling to hire the talent they need, while 62 percent of cyber employees report their organizations lack skilled information security professionals.
Engagement: Research also shows 39 percent of cyber professionals report an inability to fully learn or utilize some security technologies to their full potential.
Turnover: Around half of cyber employees report recruiters reach out about other cyber opportunities at least once per week.
“Caught in a cyber talent war, leaders miss critical opportunities to improve their cyber talent management practices which would build a strong cyber workforce in the midst of the cyber talent shortage. ”
Practitioner to Practitioner: We go beyond developing a customized plan and work with you to implement policies, practices, and design decisions within your cyber function so that change works for your organization.
Unparalled Expertise: Booz Allen developed the new National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF) as part of the NIST Special Publication 800-181, and we use our specialized knowledge of the NCWF to help you understand your cyber functional areas.
Cross-Sector Knowledge: Our team draws on extensive intellectual capital and experience in the private and public sectors to help clients cross-pollinate with the best approaches.
Innovative Training Platform: Our cybersecurity professionals and industrial-organizational psychologists have developed an innovative training platform to help cyber teams and individuals sharpen their skills through immersive, real-world cyber challenges.
Holistic Approach: We developed a tested and proven proprietary cyber talent framework to empower leaders with the information they need to visualize trade-offs, prioritize decisions, and adapt strategy to maximize their “return on decisions” for their cyber workforce.
Maintaining and improving the skillset of your cybersecurity workforce – especially as threats evolve at a rapid pace – takes more than an employee brand campaign, current skills inventory, or a one-time training. It requires an integrated and evidence-based approach to Cyber Talent Management.
Successful cyber professionals share similar non-technical traits, including passion for technology and a problem-solving mindset. Understanding what motivates and makes a cybersecurity professional tick is important to attracting—and keeping—the right team.
Cybersecurity professionals want to grow. Keeping a team engaged means letting them learn and grow through experiential work assignments and mentoring opportunities even when you feel under resourced.
