Information theft and cybercrime is an undeniable business threat, having gained more prominence in recent years, as large corporates such as TalkTalk and Sony Pictures fell victim to highly publicised attacks.
It is estimated that 5.1 million cyber-attacks occurred over the past year, with a further 2.5 million offences reported under the Computer Misuse Act. More than half of these victims suffered a financial loss.
Information security can no longer be pushed to the back of your mind, it should be an essential IT consideration that requires businesses to build a solid IT security staff complement. But where do you find these people? And how to you know that they have the skills required to get the job done?
Finding experienced IT security staff can be a daunting and difficult task, especially given the importance of filling these roles with reputable people.
Enter expert information security recruiters, Stott and May, a leading specialist IT security recruitment agency.
How information security recruitment can solve your dilemma
Qualified IT security professionals are in short supply and convincing top professionals to leave their current jobs to join your company may require more resources than you have available. 

This is where the help of a specialist IT recruitment agency, with the right resources to source and secure the people you need to optimally protect your business, will prove essential.
