How Cyber Job Central Can Confront the Shortage of Cybersecurity Talent

By Ryan Haviland

The way we search for job opportunities has changed dramatically in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought chaos to the labor market in a time of reduced budgets, hiring freezes, relocation, solopreneurs, and more. All of this has emphasized the need for a better system than the old resume and job board that has left millions of talented, hardworking people unemployed or underutilized in their current positions.

Many of these problems are especially shown in the cybersecurity industry, which has a huge shortage with over 465,000 unfilled cyber jobs across the country (Forbes, 2021). Cybersecurity job postings are rising three times greater than the overall IT job market. Organizations with weak cybersecurity cultures are much more susceptible to breaches, data loss, missed business opportunities, and regulatory penalties.

Cyber Job Central’s mission is to help solve this cybersecurity job shortage by providing a deep job platform that adds additional value to both employers and the candidates with services such as training, credentialing, vetting, collaboration, interview prep, and much more. So many cyber talents can be lost on traditional job forums, which is why Cyber Job Central focuses on reducing the work needed to be done by both the candidates and companies in order for them to find the perfect match for long-term success. Candidates are met with plenty of career development and job opportunities, while companies are provided with strong candidates that can fill their specific cybersecurity needs.

Cyber Job Central is a community full of like-minded cybersecurity professionals who can work, share, and learn together. We understand that the cybersecurity industry can be difficult to navigate right now for both talents and companies, which is why we work so hard to provide strong match candidates with opportunities that work for both them and the company.
