Recruiting and Retaining Cybersecurity Ninjas. Center for Strategic & International Studies. Franklin S. Reeder and Katrina Timlin. October 19, 2016.
This report identifies the factors that make an organization the employer of choice for what the authors call “cybersecurity ninjas.” Much has been written about the shortage of cybersecurity professionals, but little work has been done on the factors that help high-performing cybersecurity organizations build and keep a critical mass of high-end specialists. This is a first attempt that the authors hope will prompt discussion and drive changes in how organizations attract and retain high-end cybersecurity talent. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
