Cyber Security Executive Search

With the advent of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things, it has never been more important for businesses to keep on top of their cybersecurity measures. After all, a chief information security officer and their team must be able to directly advise the board and the CEO.

Global cyber consultants are tasked with enabling and leading a security-minded culture within a corporation. They must also be able to stay in tune with the evolution of other online technologies—old and new.

Egon Zehnder’s Approach to Cybersecurity

At Egon Zehnder, our network of global cyber consultants can help your organization evaluate the structure of its cybersecurity function. We can help you build teams with the right competencies and recruit leaders who can balance security requirements with business objectives. Our cybersecurity consultants help refine the constructs of your company’s job roles and devise career tracks that increase talent retention and build robust, high-performing cybersecurity teams.

We partner closely with both fast-growing cybersecurity firms, as well as more traditional companies. We use this combined insight to help our clients identify, assess, and develop cybersecurity consultants for team leader positions, who can help them rapidly and strategically scale their departments.
