Business and security leaders today must actively work to build and sustain a robust security workforce, as shortfalls in skills and capability to manage risk can manifest as major security incidents that damage organisational performance, reputation and image. Attracting, recruiting and retaining a workforce presents a significant challenge for providing immediate and sustainable security.

This ISF Briefing Paper helps formalise the structure of the security workforce by leveraging fundamental HR concepts to harness the appropriate talent and skills to provide a resilient security posture. The paper presents four strategic objectives to establish the foundation of a sustainable security workforce:

  • Adapt to increasing complexity and scale of demands
  • Seek candidates with a wide range of competencies
  • Strengthen diversity in the workforce
  • Encourage retention with a progressive working culture
