This Is Not Your Average Resume Service

    Our resume service called Talent Scout, takes the hardest part of the hiring process—attracting and identifying the right cybersecurity candidates—off your hands, saving you time and money.


    How It Works

    Talent Scout identifies information security professionals who are qualified and interested in your job without paying a full-service staffing fee. We find them, vet them, and sell them on your opportunity. You receive their resume and interview notes, why they are interested, and when they are available to speak with you. Your recruiting team does the rest. One fee, upfront, money-back guarantee.

    "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."

    Talent Scout FAQs

    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 resume service, Talent Scout, 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.

    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.

    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, KnowMore.
    • 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.

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

    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. 

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

    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.

    Contact us and for no charge we can discuss your specific situation and outline the pros and cons so you can make an informed decision.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It is a great fit for companies that want to save money compared to a full end-to-end search that also have the internal resources to manage the interview process and close a successful hire. It’s also an excellent fit for companies with smaller recruiting budgets or those with very busy internal talent acquisition teams.

    It is most likely a bad fit for companies that don’t have the internal resources to manage the hiring process from interview to close. If this is an issue, we suggest exploring our Permanent Staffing solution.

    With a 0% unemployment rate among cybersecurity professionals for the last 10 years, being connected to the cybersecurity community is imperative for recruiting.  As a naturally secretive group, cyber professionals tend to shun publicly advertising their background on sites like LinkedIn and Indeed. Working with a firm like CyberSN that is connected to the cyber community and speaks the language of cyber professionals, will save you time and money while reducing the risks associated with having a vacancy in your security department.

    You should only buy it when you are ready to hire, when you are prepared to have someone start within 30–60 days, and when you have someone who is dedicated to support and manage the hiring process.

    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.

    Fill out the Contact Us form and we will assign you a CyberSN Account Manager who will contact you immediately to review the contract and schedule a kick-off call.
