Talk Description 

Your talent is being attacked by cybersecurity recruiters everyday. The volume and quality of these attacks will only continue to increase. What are you doing to lower the possibility of the right call at the right time? With the talent pool being short nearly 500,000 people in the United States, recruiters in cybersecurity are growing savvier in their strategy to reach your talent. You must assume that your talent will take a call, multiple calls, from a skilled cybersecurity recruiter with a great opportunity to share. You can be ahead of these recruiters and defend from potential loss (the current US shortage total is 498,000 according to the (ISC)2 2019 - Cybersecurity Workforce Study).

Diamond will share how skilled recruiters decide who they will target, how they perform reconnaissance and when/how exploitation and compromise happens. There is an exact moment when your talent’s commitment level is compromised. Leaders who have the knowledge of these tactics can prepare and defend from talent attacks. Ultimately, understanding your talent threat vector allows for your culture to perform high and be enjoyable, thus lowering risk. How "secure" is your cybersecurity talent?
