Our Talent Scout service helps you attract and identify the right professionals, and you do the rest

Why use Talent Scout?

Talent Scout takes the hardest part of the hiring process out of your hands. Identifying, recruiting and matching cybersecurity professionals to roles is a specialized job and very time-consuming, as cybersecurity professionals are not on regular job boards or in your database. These professionals value privacy greatly, so you need to be proactive within the cybersecurity community to find them. Our Talent Scout service saves you time and money, with a 100% money back guarantee.

The CyberSN Difference

We are the only company in the U.S. that specializes solely in cybersecurity hiring.

Our staffing directors and our internal cybersecurity team understand the roles and responsibilities of cyber professionals, the salary landscape, and the human aspect of the job search.

Thank you for what has been the smoothest sourcing exercise I’ve ever gone through (not just for diverse candidates, but any candidate). You have a great system. I wish we could budget for it for all our open roles. You will definitely be hearing from us again when we have a targeted need.

FAQs

What is it?

CyberSN takes the hardest part of the hiring process—attracting and identifying the right cybersecurity candidates—off your hands, saving you time and money. Our Talent Scout service identifies information security professionals who are qualified and interested in your job. We vet them and sell them on your opportunity. Then we provide you with their resume, why they are qualified, why they are interested, and when they are available to speak with you. You send the calendar meeting invite and take it from there. One fee, upfront, with a money-back guarantee.

How does it work?

The first step is a kick-off meeting to discuss your opening in detail. We review the function of the role, the must-haves, the nice-to-haves, and what makes a good culture fit. We then send you five resumes of cyber professionals who meet the criteria that we have agreed upon. You are then free to contact them directly and manage the rest of the process yourself.

How do I get started?

Call or schedule a time to speak. From there we will: Discuss your specific job opening and give you a fee estimate. Craft a job description that will attract qualified and interested professionals, especially passive ones. Conduct an expansive search through all our channels, including our proprietary cybersecurity job platform. Interview all potential candidates and qualify them for your job and your culture. Provide their resume with all of our notes and their availability to interview.

What is your money-back guarantee?

If we don't provide five qualified and interested candidates for your job in 45 days we will refund your money.

Do I get my fee back if no one is hired?

The fee is non-refundable as long as we provide five qualified and interested candidates within 45 days. Our responsibility is to find the five cybersecurity professionals. It’s your responsibility to interview and close.

What locations do you service?

We serve all locations in the US, Canada, Europe and India.

Where do you find candidates?

CyberSN is a firm that specializes in cybersecurity staffing. Our database of cybersecurity professionals, our network of cyber pros, and our reputation in the cyber community gives us access to a very large contingent of active and passive cyber job seekers.

Can I use Talent Scout to fill multiple openings?

Yes, you can. We will provide you five qualified and interested cyber professionals and you can hire them all for the same one-time fee.

How long will it take you to provide resumes to us?

We provide the professionals as we find them over a 30–45 day period. You should expect to receive the first candidates within two weeks of our kick-off meeting. We will deliver in under 45 days, but the majority of clients are serviced within three weeks.

What’s in it for you?

You will save time and money by outsourcing the search for qualified and interested professionals to us. You save ½ of what the cost would be to hire these professionals if we were to conduct an end-to-end search. You also will have much faster results because of our connections to the cybersecurity community. And remember, you can hire all five people that we present for the same one-time fee. You could pay ½ to fill the one position you’re looking for and end up saving even more should you hire any of the additional candidates we send.

What's in it for CyberSN?

We understand that companies cannot always afford to hire us for a full search. We also know that with 500,000 job openings for cybersecurity professionals currently in the U.S., identifying qualified candidates is extremely difficult. We created this service so companies can obtain access to our vast network of cybersecurity professionals and develop a partnership with CyberSN that will benefit both of us forever.

How much does Talent Scout cost?

It ranges from 10–15% of the hired cybersecurity professional’s annual salary with most of our engagements being 12.5%. A discounted fee is possible on volume hiring needs. The salary for the role is determined in the kick-off meeting.
